Spot the imposter stereo component reviewer

One of these men is not a contributor to Stereohile, The Absolute Sound, etc.
Well... at least not regularly.
Can you tell which? B)

    You are correct -- but I thought that his overall Gestalt is pretty much of a kind with your typical early 21st Century hifi scribe. :)

    So do you think D. (Kal Rubinson) or E. (Herb Reichert) pulls off the scarf thing better than Mr. Fagen? ;)

    PS I think that B. does the snooty audiophile reviewer facial expression better than any of those other guys! :p

    Yep. Snooty as all heck. I need to pad my scarf collection.

    B is from Steely Dan?!?
    No wonder I didn't know who he is.

    I'll take Steely Dan over Mazzy Star any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

    That is correct, and you have much to learn from your elders, son ;)



    I just thought he looked like a Stereophile reviewer in that photo -- the dour expression being the icing on the cake. :)

    Here's a more dour lookin' Herb Reichert (with Joseph Esmilla [L] and Joe Roberts [R]), from... quite a few years back now.

    He's not glowering... plus...
    still no scarf. :#

    He does get points for the black shirt, though
    ;)

    (oh -- plus, he's much too young... and doesn't appear to have a beer-belly/potbelly)

    I think he's about two feet too short. Maybe three feet.

    I'm a little concerned that @verb has multiple photos of me ready to post at a moment's notice.

    We now know what to get @Clipdat for the "winter holidays" (Christmas/Hanukkah/Festivus, etc) this year.
