Keen-eyed Sound & Vision readers will note that the magazine’s Perfect Focus section has been renamed Wide Angle. The name change represents a re-jiggering of content: You will now see fewer news bites, and more Quick Take product reviews and event coverage like that of the 2018 Munich High End show on page 26. Wide Angle also won’t be limited to just the print magazine. You’ll find Wide Angle content on soundandvision.com, such as my recent post detailing a visit with Joe Bussard, one of the world’s foremost collectors of early 78 rpm jazz, blues, and country recordings. My plan for the section is to have it connect readers with not just the industry events
Sound & Vision writers attend, but things like record shows, music fests, movie fests, and premieres. With a name like Wide Angle, the sky’s the limit, and it’s my hope to use the forum to cover a diverse range of Av-related topics.—
