Reply to "what hi-fi 19 best amplifiers"

JEDT, I'm not sure about that; the 3 series introduced during the '90s got plenty of coverage in WHF, which made sense as it was affordable and very, very good.  The NAIT 3 and CD3 were regulars of many group tests and system reviews.

Conversely, during the '80s Naim advertised fairly regularly in WHF (those classic ads that are so fondly remembered) and you didn't see many Naim reviews at all, although the brand did get mentioned quite a bit in recommendations for readers letters (as did Linn with the Sondek).

So, I just don't think it's possible to make a strong case for any direct correlation between ad spend and reviews.
