The beginning of this post has previously been covered in another thread but to recap: In the December 2022 issue of TAS Robert Harley reviewed the $350K Burmeister 159 monoblock power amplifiers by spending two days at a dealer auditioning them instead of in his home setup. Part of that time was spent with the Wilson Audio speakers he has at home and part of the time with another speaker. Based on that experience he wrote a glowing review and awarded the amps the title of Solid State Amplifier of the year. Forward to the September 2023 issue of TAS and there is a review of the $375K Burmeister BC350 Loudspeakers. Part of the way through the review Mr. Harley reveals that these speakers were auditioned during the SAME two day period and conditions as the amplifiers. The amplifiers used to drive them were not the Burmeister 159’s and the speakers used to audition the 159’s were not the Burmeister speakers in the current review. That means he spent approximately 1 day apiece to audition $725K worth of equipment. As a continuous subscriber to TAS for more than 40 years I’m surprised at the low level of effort and lack of time spent auditioning these expensive pieces of equipment for review. I certainly can’t imagine HP allowing something like this to be passed off as anything other than a Show Report. I hope this isn't a sign of where the magazine is headed.
