I love Tape Op.

I love Tape Op Magazine.

I'm saying this 2 times before I ask, why is it so hard to get to archived articles at TapeOp.com?

I just tried to get to one from a link that was posted on FB.
I had to "sign in" to get to it then the whole article wasn't even there?
It was a paywall.

Maybe this was an old policy that's never been updated?

I feel like things are backwards. I'd gladly pay for the magazine and hope the online archives were free.
I'm the guy who thinks the airlines should charge for carry ons and check your baggage for free.


Again, I love Tape Op.

I love Tape Op magazine.

I’ve ran into this as well. Especially with old articles or reviews that were online for years and only recently can’t find. I agree about carryons, and love Tape Op also. :alien:

I don't own an airline but I can comment on the magazine:

Current content is always free.
Gear reviews are always free.
Printed copies of the new issue mailed to you are free (In the US).
PDF's of the new issue are free (in the world).
If you've had a subscription for years, and maintained the account, then older content will be free to view online.
In all other cases we charge to view, as that is older content that we worked hard for and don't generate ad income from.
