    Same thought here.... I have hundreds of old hi fi mags but finding a specific issue or review would be a major task!

    I probably did have a copy: I use to buy them all in those days. But a couple of so years ago, I threw out a couple of cubic metres of old hi-fi mags.

    The few I have remaining are boxed up, and not easily accessible.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I keep thinking about binning all mine but so far nostalgia has the best of me... Some of them are in a pile/row about a metre high and 4 long, more are in old suitcases and in piles in the back of cupboards... I could REALLY do with the space but the thought of all those reviews, technical articles and opinion pieces that took years to accumulate, and cost a pretty penny spread out over several years, just being binned... hmmm. I even have maybe a metre high pile of brochures and spec sheets from hi fi shows going back to the early 80's... Hoarder? me?

    I came to a decision a few years back and dumped around half of mine and retained the rest. I did not start my interest until the late 80s so cant help Peter but I when I started I purchased most titles regularly except What HiFi which I felt was mainly advertising with limited content.

    I thought about retaining New HiFi Sound because of the record reviews but Q did them better so dumped those. I also dumped my collection of HiFi Answers because I felt the content was bland. However I quite liked the Audiophile mag that HiFi Answers morphed into so should have most of those. I also kept HiFi Review and a lot of the early HiFi World when that replaced HFR. I have some HiFi News and Record Review but not sure how many I retained.

    'Hi Fi World', 'Hi Fi Review' and the excreable 'The Flat Respose', were a total waste of paper and nothing more than an organ of the arch Flat Earther. propagandist.

    I have one issue of "The Flat response" and yes it is laughable! I liked "Hi Fi World" though... a good mix of technical, DIY and reviews IMHO... and there is an amp designed by my good self on the front cover of the Nov '95 issue

    An onerous task but it would be a good archive to have them scanned and saved.
