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.

I think JGH must have been around before I joined, as I don't remember him posting at all.

Now you've got me second guessing myself. I went through some of the archives that JA sent me, but didn't find Gordon in any of them. But then he only archived some of the audio forums, none of the video forums which is what Gordon was into at the time. It's also possible I could be thinking of CompuServe's CEFORUM. I'll get in touch with JA and see what his recollection was.

Yes. J10 (as he was known on TAN) started off at TAS, then moved over to Stereophile after about a year (when TAS got in some financial trouble). I seem to recall he lasted at Stereophile for a number of years; I really don't remember when he left.
