Have no fear, the printed edition of Ultra High Fidelity Magazine is not about to vanish, now or in the foreseable future. But there is now another way to get UHF, right on your computer. Or your iPad. Or any device capable of reading a PDF file.
How does it work?
When you order, our staff processes your credit card order, and then Maggie will send you a link, with your user name and password. You'll need them only for the initial download. The electronic edition is a PDF, without digital rights management, readable even when you're offline.
What if I want to read it on more than one computer?
Just transfer it to any computer you own, including a Windows or Linux PC, a Macintosh, or a tablet such as an iPad. We ask that you not share with anyone else. Though some publications live entirely from their advertising, UHF is financed to a considerable extent by sales of the magazine.
Is Maggie cross-platform?
Is it ever! It works on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, Android, and indeed any platform capable of reading a PDF document.
Can I get a look at the way it works?
For a preview, go to The Reading Room, where you can download the free edition of UHF. The free version is just like the paid version, except that some of its articles are not complete. Notice that you can navigate the pages as you would any other PDF document. Both the free and paid versions include live links. Click on a title in the table of contents, and you'll be whisked to the corresponding article. Click on an ad, and go right to the advertiser's Web site.
What does Maggie cost?
An individual issue costs $4.00, in Canadian dollars,no matter where in the world you live. Sales tax will be added within Canada. You can subscribe for 13 issues for $40, or $20 for six issues.
So how do we proceed?
Payment is by VISA or MasterCard, and is always in Canadian dollars, with any applicable sales tax to be added at the time of the transaction. Once your order is processed, you'll get an e-mail telling you to go the appropriate link to download your issue. Click on one of these links:
Can I convert my existing subscription to an electronic one?
Yes you can. To do it, e-mail us, including your name and address, so that we know who you are, or phone us (450-651-5720, officer hours Eastern Time). We will of course adjust the number of issues in your subscription to reflect the lower cost of an electronic subscription.
Will all the back issues be made available electronically?
Not all of them, if only because older issues can no longer be opened with modern software. However all issues from No. 68 are available from Maggie.
Will the electronic edition eventually replace the printed issue?
The printed issue will continue into the indefinite future, and we know many readers still prefer it, The Maggie electronic edition is an alternative for those who want UHF faster...or cheaper.
