Now that the Summit has been reviewed in several publications, which reviewers, or magazines do you trust for their opinions of products? Do you have a favorite reviewer who's views approximate yours?

I subscribe to most of the available periodicals and find their reviewing to be a mixed bag. I mentioned (in a previous post) that I once bought a phono preamp based on a recommendation that I read in a Stereophile review. In the next month's column, the reviewer substantially altered his opinion of the product. IMHO, that's irresponsible journalism. Comments?

I'm going to go read the TAS review... and I'll post my thoughts later.

The fundamental problem with reviews is taking them seriously. At best they make you aware what is on the market. The recent Alvin Gold review of the Summits is a case in point. His commentary about the energy requirements of the stat have clearly 'coloured' his thinking.
