A recent reader comment on this site gave high praise to the magazine’s AV equipment reviews, but then went on to condemn our “weak” attempts to review movies on Blu-ray disc. The gist of the message was that movie disc reviews are best left to websites that can cover them on a timely basis, as opposed to the weeks or even months that it can take for Sound&Vision to turn out reviews of the same titles.

They brought a new kind of private and intimate listening experience to ’70s and ’80s audiophiles.
