I agree with the bulk of this.  For better or
for worse, CR is going to be the least biased
of any similar publication.  The "problem" is that
that we here on the Epson list have somewhat unusual
criteria for evaluating our printers.

Your "typical" consumer is probably more concerned
with speed, quiet operation, ink consumption, business 
graphics, performance on cheap paper, etc.

As to stereo gear, though, I remember the days
(25 years ago) when CR was right-on about a 
number of items, and properly identified some
classics... like the AR turntable.
