is the sea­son to kick back and re­lax af­ter run­ning around in a panic, try­ing to find the per­fect gift for ev­ery­one on your list, as you try to drown out the sounds of your wal­let wail­ing in protest. Maybe you were also try­ing to drown out the sounds of ter­ri­ble Christ­mas carol cov­ers that re­tail stores are forced to have on loop for that next month or so. If you had an au­dio­phile on your shop­ping list, or you your­self are the au­dio­phile in ques­tion, but you didn't ex­actly get what you wanted, wrap your­self up in a cozy blan­ket by the fire with some nog and snug­gle up to this is­sue. We’ll make buy­ing the presents you ac­tu­ally wanted easy!

We pre­sent to you our Mo­bile Elec­tron­ics spe­cial, just a lit­tle af­ter the hol­i­days. What? You think we weren't go­ing to get you some­thing?

In­side, you’ll come across a Hot New Prod­ucts guide, stuffed with the hottest and new­est elec­tron­ics of the sea­son. There’s also a pre­view of the largest an­nounced au­dio event dates of 2017, so you can start plan­ning all the places you’ll be able to show off all of the new toys you’ve ac­quired.

The star on top of the tree, if you will, of this is­sue is ab­so­lutely the Test Re­ports. Our res­i­dent cy­borg/time lord (the only way I can fathom how he can ac­cu­rately test so many prod­ucts in such a tight dead­line), Garry Spring­gay, has been re­ally work­ing in his test bench, with eight fully-fea­tured prod­uct re­views ac­counted for as ev­i­dence. Brand-new of­fer­ings from DD Au­dio, MTX, Aud­i­son, JL Au­dio, Kicker, JBL, Kenwood, and Mem­phis have been scru­ti­nized and pushed to their lim­its, with the graphs and ta­bles to prove it, so you can breathe easy while de­cid­ing where you should up­grade your in-car game next. Have your notebook and pen ready – you’ll want to make a wish list of sorts.

Happy New Year from the PASMAG staff to you and your fam­ily! Let’s make 2017 even louder.
