Perhaps you all already know how things work here at TNT-Audio. We are a 100% independent, zero-profit HiFi magazine which has been around for more than 16 years! How time flies, uh?
Since day 1 we decided to choose a radical approach to HiFi reviewing, as we didn't like what commercial HiFi magazines (in print or online) were doing: it is hard to be 100% honest and sincere when you review an advertiser's product...after all he pays your bills!
Hence, and first of all, the mag had to be completely FREE for readers, and completely independent. This meant NO advertising, NO banners, NO paid links, not even subscriptions nor donations. Our editor, i.e. yours truly, paid and still pays for everything. This also implies that our reviewers (less than a dirty dozen) are UNPAID writers: they just write for the fun of it!
Moreover, we don't have to pay webmasters, proofreaders, graphic designers etc. because we do all the site needs just "in house", by ourselves. This helps cutting down costs and guarantees the mag can survive financially without support of any kind. We just have to pay for a dedicated server and that's all. An utopia? Maybe but...so far so good!
A couple of years ago we launched a recruiting campaign on our discussion forum and that produced two new staff members. Actually we were hoping to get someting more than that. Several wannabees proposed themselves as reviewers but then disappeared after writing a single review sample. That's why today we feel we need new reviewers, so that the magazine can continue to offer a wider variety of viewpoints on different aspects of HiFi.
If you think you can have the knowledge and the time to become a member of our staff read carefully what we require and try to apply!
A TNT-Audio reviewer should respect the following rules.
Now, if you feel you can successfully apply, just write a review sample of a component you know well so that our staff can judge the quality of your writing skills. Also supply a short CV, we need to know what our reviewers do for a living. Finally, briefly describe your career as audiophile. Be concise and try your best to convince us you can become our next staff member!
