It looks like I found this thread relatively late...when we first were talking about making this a separate thread, it was when another thread went off-topic with reminiscences about The Audiophile Network (TAN), for which Steve Eddy was technical adviser. I don't know if anyone else here was a TANner, but it was one of the more amazing communities of audiophiles in the pre-Internet age.
Looking back, I'm trying to remember just how many audio writers were present on TAN during its heyday. Some of them were already established, others actually got hired based on their TAN posts. Among those I can definitely remember were:
John Atkinson (Stereophile, obviously)
Myles Astor (basically everywhere)
Jonathan Valin (TAS, Fi)
Corey Greenberg (Stereophile)
Jonathan Scull (TAS, Stereophile)
Kalman Rubison (Stereophile)
Jack English (...sounds like..., Stereophile)
Doug Blackburn (SoundStage)
I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting about. If you were on TAN, could you help me complete the list?
Gordon Holt. Other than that I think your list is pretty complete.
