Until 2018, Stereophile was published in New York by The Enthusiast Network, a publisher of special interest magazines. The magazine was formerly based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. During this period it was published eight times a year. In March 2018, Stereophile was purchased, along with related magazines and websites, by AVTech Media Ltd.
On March 1, 2019, John Atkinson announced that he was stepping down from his position of Editor of Stereophile, that he would continue his association with the magazine as Technical Editor, and that Jim Austin, formerly an editor at Science and a freelance contributor to Stereophile, would be taking over as Editor. Atkinson had edited the magazine since 1986.
