There's a pattern that develops with high end audio manufacturers and the magazines they support ( with advertising )
All the high end turntable manufacturers ( and magazines ) totally crapped over CDs for the first few years until CD's massive consumer acceptance made it economic suicide to continue to do so. ( Linn's an excellent example....after several years of strong anti- CD sentiment, the CD format was suddenly OK once Linn had a $10,000 CD player for sale ) Same thing with the high end mags. Now there was advertising to be had.
Many of the high end audio manufacturers crapped over video products for the first few years until video started gaining too much consumer interest. ( and taking too much money away from audio-only purchases.) Then they started making high end (read "high priced") Dolby decoders, multi-channel amps etc. The high end audio mags followed suit with acceptance and editorial coverage because now again there was advertising to be had.
If you were to go back a few years and pull out opinionated quotations from the owners and marketing managers of high end audio equipment, and from the publishers and editors of high end audio mags, you'll find most of them eventually become hypocritical to some degree or other.
