Stereophile Digital


筆者一向有訂閱美國 Stereophile 音響雜誌的習慣,但今年開始不再訂閱郵寄版,改而訂閱電子版,原因如下:

  1. 環保 – 是時候為地球出一點力吧!
  2. 成本 – 電子版一年 12 期只需 US$ 9.75,郵寄版一年書價連運費就要 US$36.9。
  3. 方便 – 電子版可以可以在 PC / Mac / Linux / iPhone / iPad 上觀看任可一期已訂閱的雜誌、不用考慮存儲或攜帶的問題、更有內文搜索功能 …
  4. 多媒體內容 – 一些內容更以多媒體方法表示

電子版的好處有很多,它是否適合你的需要?可到以下網站試看幾頁:

Stereophile 電子版有網上版、下載版及 iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad 版可供選擇:


1.  網上版只要在安裝有網頁瀏覽器及 Adobe Flash Plug-in 的電腦便可

除了訂閱了的 Stereophile 雜誌外,還會收到一些免費的 Sample 雜誌。在左面的選單上 ("free") 還有更多免費雜誌可供訂閱


網上版的排版方式和實體雜誌基本沒有分別,在 27" 顯示器上可清楚看到兩頁的內容,較細的顯示器可以用 Zoom In / Zoom Out 去調整內容大少,但每次換頁時也會重設為 "Best Fit" ...


電子版最有用的功能 -- "內文搜索功能",搜索結果會顯示在頁面左面



2. 下載版需要安裝 Zinio Reader 軟件,目前最新版本為 4.0 Beta,支援 PC / Mac / Linux 操作系統

Zinio Reader 的功能和網上版相若,但 Zinio Reader 有中文介面提供,而且 Zoom In / Zoom Out 可以設定預設值,解決換頁時變回 "Best Fit" 的問題。特別一提,Zinio Reader 在 Mac 上的反應比 PC 為快。


3. iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad 版需要安裝 Zinio Reader iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad Apps,香港的 iTunes Store 沒有這 Apps 下載,用家需要到美國的 iTunes Store 開新 Apple 帳戶才可從美國的 iTunes Store 下載這 Apps

一些雜誌除圖文版外亦會提供純文字版,
但 Stereophile 卻沒有提供

訂閱了一年, under US$10. 但因年老關係, 很費眼神.

現在選擇性 print out. 預計油墨費用, 貴過訂閱價!

I subscribed to digital Stereophile, TAS & HiFi News for years. I only buy printed Stereo Sound. About the HK magazines, didn't buy for years.

I've been happy Zinio user for many years. My first issue on record was November-04 Stereophile.

I also subscribe to HiFi News, Business week, Economist and many more. But so far, only Stereophile is available for iPhone.

I am subscribed to TAS as well. But I heard that TAS may have been closed down, anybody heard that?

My favorite PDF magazine is HiFi+

Hi agentsmittie, where can I subscribe the HiFi+ PDF version?
#9 - agentsmittie :
2010-04-08 22:10:09


Strange, I used to subscribe through the AVGuide web site, but now their web site only list print versions.

I think it is now available here:

I hate the small font size (stereophile) !!! can I-pad fix it?

>>A very good excuse to buy iPad as so many electronics copies available now.

Be careful though, only a few magazines are converted to iPAD/iPhone. Currently I have The Economist, Stereophile, HiFi+, and only Stereophile is available for the iPhone. Not sure if it has been converted to iPad yet.

I think they have to convert them one by one.

"I hate the small font size (stereophile) !!! can I-pad fix it?"

IPad can't solve your problem. You need a large LCD with >TrueHD resolution such as this to have the feeling of reading a real magazine without zooming in/out:


#15 - agentsmittie :
2010-04-12 11:56:10


Or just print it out

Been Stereophile subscriber for over 10 years now, still enjoy holding a magazine on my hand ;).

Also use Zinio for Home Theatre Mag, quite nice but printing is a bit awkward.

"subscriber for over 10 years now, still enjoy holding a magazine on my hand"

Me 2, previously also subscribed to UHF, a Canadian hifi magazine which was just great!

Thanks... I know...I need a social security no. to open an US account.... so......
#22 - 管理團隊 :
2010-04-26 01:57:10


hercules: no social security number is required during create US account.

Or you can use "Change Country" in Apple Account Information screen.
#23 - agentsmittie :

2 ways to download zinio from US iPhone store:

1. Register with a US credit card if you have one

2. Ask someone from the US to buy an iTunes
gift card, there will be a PIN number that you can use to change your home country to the US

I think Zinio is incredibly stupid to make the software US only, considering that it's magazines are subscribed worldwide

Hi agentsmittie, hercules and all chings,

you can perform a google search such "itunes 美國帳號", then you will find the way to create a foreign itunes account.

Good News (maybe old news), Taiwan HiFi Magazine "音響論壇" & "PrimeAV 新視聽" offer free graphic layout view of their old magazine (六個月之前). Previously is text only version.
