Resistor Mag favours cultural over commercial impact; hand-built craftsmanship over effective branding. Resistor will remain fairly indifferent about measurements and specifications, instead placing a premium on the presence, texture and musicality of playback from hi-fi.

Gear and music are about more than just aesthetics. Resistor venerates the things we covet rather than disparaging those we do not. 

More specifically, think of Resistor Mag as the tape on a reel-to-reel for laying down the tracks of writers, photographers, artists, musicians and designers who are resisting the temptation to be basic and instead work towards being interesting, inspiring and humorous.
