A nearly complete set of Stereophile magazines from the 1 st issue, September-October, 1962 , Volume 1, Number 1 to Volume 28, Number 12, December 2006 when my subscription/interest ran out. There are a total of 291 issues for $1250, Average cost for all is just under $4.30 each. Also included is a Synopsis for 1971 through 1983. It lists what is in all those issues and explains the numbering system and quantity of all the early issues from the beginning .

Cosmetics are excellent to mint, just a few with folds or loose covers, etc. Keep in mind these were all sent through the mail one at a time. I saw writing on the cover of one and underlining/notes in several early issues, don’t have time to check them all inside and out, I know I never wrote in any. They are from my personal collection I am selling off and are the very best of many groups I bought over the years. I kept the best and sold off the rest. I doubt there are many set nicer or more complete. Internet information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereophile If you’re a collector, audiophile or just like to read about good audio equipment these are invaluable. Hundreds of reviews on Turntables, Tonearms, Phono cartridges, Step-up preamps, Stereo Amps, Preamps Integrated Amps, Speakers, Cables, etc. This publication and Absolute Sound are considered the best for equipment reviews. The earliest issues are near impossible to find now, quite expensive if you can find them for sale. If you're a Vintage Audio dealer on eBay, I can tell you from experience that nothing sells an item faster than one pictured and described in an ad or review. It verifies the date, specs, best features, etc. The pictures below are of the actual magazines I am selling I have this auction listed as “pick-up only” because these can not be shipped USPS Media Mail because they are "magazines with ads". Any other form of USPS shipping will cost a lot, FedEx and UPS Ground will be very high too, however I will quote a Ground shipping price if a serious buyer insists. I suggest uShip or come get them yourself, gasoline is about as cheap as it ever will be.
