I'm in the process of setting up a subscription online audio projects magazine.

In the past there were some really good electronics magazines which featured audio projects but sadly these aren't easily available or non-existent today.

The magazine is for owners-forum members only, and is a paid for magazine... Some projects will appear here and at DIY-Audio-Kits.com free-of-charge (as samplers), but design time and materials cost money, so most will only be available in the magazine.

I can give members quite a number of interesting audio projects and will listen to our members wish-lists Question, so the magazine will have worthwhile projects in it. However, I am an "analogue man", so it could be difficult for me to do a DAK without bringing in another.

At the beginning I think I can only manage a bi-monthly (6/7 a year) magazine. What price would you consider reasonable for a magazine with some real top audio circuits? Question

In it I will feature...

DIY upgrades of the Graham Slee range of products - how to do it - the ins and outs - where to obtain components (sometimes us)...

At least one "called-for" project per edition - something the hobbyist can get his/her "teeth" into.

Larger construction projects may span 2 or 3 editions: here I'm thinking about power amps, that sort of thing. I have more ideas than the ability to turn them into viable products - it is far less restrictive for me to make and tweak a prototype and then make it available in "print"

Also circuit ideas/interesting applications.

A PCB service.

I will allow advertising to help with the running costs - anybody interested should PM me.

The magazine would be done as a PDF and distributed by "member-permissions" where those who buy a copy will have access to the download for the period of that edition.

Comments? Question
Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...

So is that 5 quid per edition on a twelve month?

So £10 (GBP) is OK per edition on a six month?

I can see paying $30 USD per year for a bi-monthly electronic edition.

i think it is a great idea! i would be happy with an annual subscription of around £60.

one thing i wonder is how easy or difficult the various projects will be to understand and how accessible they will be to the novice (i count myself in this category). how much basic/starter information would there be, along with information such as where to source components, psu's, enclosures etc. from what i know of how you seem to do things and how good the novo kit it i'm guessing this will all be very thorough?

i'm going to have a think about possible suggestions...

Considering that, and based upon the "complete" lack of interest in doing anything ones self in the UK (victims of the couch slouch), I think it very reasonable indeed for any engineer worth more than ten quid an hour to work enthusiastically for 4 weeks on a top-notch printable electronically downloadable quality content magazine for an income of maybe twenty quid a month from two readers.... Ouch

As for 5 dollars per edition... ever tried outsourcing the entire project to a far eastern farm labourer? Ouch

Why do I get the feeling this is going to be a non-starter?
