  The Gadget Guru  - "The nation's (USA) leading new products reporting service" - that says it all - electronic gadgets galore !

  HDCD Homepage - Find out about new HDCD releases. These guys are great ! I requested a catalog, and they sent it to me, no questions asked. One of my favorite writers, M. Colloms found HDCD to lack pace. But my other fave writer, R. Harley, recommends it. I totally agree with R. Harley in this case, as M. Colloms was evaluating HDCD with EAD digital sources, known for their smoothness and lack of pace ! If you haven't got HDCD yet, I recommend you wait until the Super Audio CD with HDCD !

  Hi-Fi Choice - one of my favorite UK hifi magazines ... they've generously archived their full reviews of components in their website ... good magazine that I prefer over What HiFi?
