    The French do things differently. I first heard Triangle loudspeakers at the 1981 Festival du Son, in Paris. That was, of course, after I had obtained admission to the show, in a nonintuitive process in which members of the press obtained their credentials at a booth inside the show. But my experience of the Triangle speaker, a small, three-way floorstander, was positive: It sounded clean and uncolored, and nothing like the BBC-inspired speakers I preferred at that time. The Triangle wasn't as neutral as the English norm, but there was something appealing about its sound—something that,…

    It's like hearing the name of an old friend and then seeing him, in your mind's eye, as he was when you were both much younger: Whenever talk turns to Boulder, Colorado–based PS Audio, I can't help picturing that company's Model IV preamplifier, of the early 1980s—most likely because that was the preamp I longed to own at the time. (Tragically, I couldn't afford to buy it, so I struggled on with my NAD 1020.) An awful lot has changed since then, including, in recent years, a shift of PS Audio's emphasis from audio amplification to AC-power regeneration. Even more recently, under the…

I like his or her art."—David Wilson Last March, I had a rare experience akin to hearing the same recording through two different systems. I heard Andris Nelsons conduct the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in the same program—Haydn's Symphony 90, and Brahms's Variations on a Theme by Haydn, followed by his Symphony 3—in two very different venues: UC Berkeley's Zellerbach Hall and, 50 miles north, Sonoma State University's Weill…

And from the center of my cellar, Love, louder than thunder Opens a heaven of naked air. New eyes awaken. I send Love’s name into the world with wings And songs grow up around me like a jungle. Choirs of all creatures sing the tunes Your Spirit played in Eden. Zebras and antelopes and birds of paradise Shine on the face of the abyss And I am drunk with the great wilderness Of the sixth day in Genesis. But sound is never half so fair As when that…

Just recently I got new SATA cables and used 3m AB5030 EMI/RFI to shield the cables and some of the chips on the motherboard.

The fruits of those labors wrought a significantly chilling parable about a mad scientist who foolishly reanimates a deceased man stitched together with spare body parts from other corpses. At a time when science was exploring new territories and pushing boundaries, Frankenstein was conceived as a terrifying morality tale about the dangers of playing God.

    The original Studio Projects / 797 Audio C3 is a multipattern condenser microphone. The circuit is based on the Schoeps transformerless design. The capsule is based on Neuman's K67. The combination of a brightly voiced capsule with a linear circuit creates the sonic profile that has since become commonplace for microphones imported from China.The C3 was better built than many of the internally similar microphones that followed it. It has a 34mm capsule that is a much better copy of the K67 than most of the Chinese-made microphones (which use 32mm capsules). The JFETs were manually biased…

    The AL39 is a large-geometry, passive ribbon microphone with a toroidal output transformer. It incorporates some of the characteristics of the custom motor design of Samar Audio's premium MF65 microphone, at less than half the cost. In particular, the AL39 was designed to have an extended high-frequency response superior to traditional ribbon designs. The motor design provides a very short audio path around the ribbon -- described by Samar representatives as "shortest front to back acoustical path ever seen in ribbon microphones" -- which influences the frequency response. Passive acoustic…

    Mesanovic's second ribbon mic, the Model 2, is a passive, bidirectional design with extended high-frequency response.While the company's first mic, the Model 1, has a very short front-to-back audio path for the purpose of improving the high-frequency response, the Model 2 uses a redesigned motor whose path length is shorter still. The front and rear sides of the motor incorporate passive acoustic filters (resonator plates) which further increase the high-frequency response, resulting in a broad +3dB boost at 12kHz, and a -3dB point above 20kHz. The narrowness of the redesigned motor allowed…

Please don't take this thread off at a tangent as I'm definitely sticking with the Linn geometry and have the following three contenders in mind: Linn Basik Plus - reasonably priced second hand and a fair reputation; this would give me a start and could be fairly easily resold without significant loss if I decide to upgrade later.

    Everyday Listening

  • Maelstrom

    admin
    31 Jul 2014 | 8:44 am
    Some art just sticks in your mind. In 2012 I saw Roman Kirschner’s / Els Viaene’s Maelstrom at the DEAF Festival in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, and last year I found myself thinking about it a couple of times. Seeing the work; the subtlety of it, and not knowing how it worked left a big impression on me. The work is inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe story “A Descent into the Maelstrom”, in which a man reminisces about surviving a storm, shipwreck and a whirlpool. Over time, memories are transformed and imagination comes into play. Our memories are liquid. In…
  • Cities & Memory

    admin
    28 Jul 2014 | 8:05 am
    We’ve seen quite a few projects using geolocation lately, from Sterepublic which “crowdsourced the quiet”, to the URB project in Porto, also collecting sound data from locations. The Cities & Memory project is different in the sense that it wants to record the sounds of the actual space, as well as the poetic, underlying space. Every faithful field recording document here is accompanied by a reworking, a processing or an interpretation that imagines that place and time as somewhere else, somewhere new. The listener can choose to explore locations through their actual…
  • Frequencies (a)

    admin
    6 Jul 2014 | 4:59 am
    Nicolas Bernier is a Canadian sound artist who we’ve seen before. His “Frequencies” is an ongoing process focusing on basic sound generation systems. “Frequencies (a)” is a sound performance combining the sound of mechanically triggered tuning forks with pure digital soundwaves. The tuning fork, producing a sound closest to a pure sinewave, provides a historical link between science, tonal instrument works, and electronic music. The performer is triggering sequences from the computer, activating solenoids that hit the tuning forks with high precision. Streams of…
  • Sounds Like Silver

    admin
    29 Jun 2014 | 4:32 am
    Synaesthesia is the neurological phenomenon in which the brain mixes up the senses; stimulation of one of the senses leads to experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. For “Sounds Like Silver”, Kevin Blake worked with a group of three people with sound to colour induced synaesthesia, documenting and illustrating the visual experiences of the group upon hearing his composition. The work explores the concept of synaesthesia being both a blessing and a curse, and explores visual spaces that are both real and surreal. It was completed as part of a thesis exploring the…
  • Five Sound Questions to John Wynne

    admin

    Picture by Tim Wainwright. Last week we saw John Wynne’s 300 Speakers, Pianola and Vacuum Cleaner, and also new site-specific works for “The Flux, and I” which is on in London until the 22nd of June. The delicate sounds of the huge installation were quite intriguing, so I am quite honored to have him answer the Five Questions. 1.    What sound from your childhood made the most impression on you? I remember being 8 or 9 years old and living in Cold Lake, in Canada, running around at night with a couple of friends, unscrewing Christmas light bulbs outside…

  • Haydn: Symphonies Nos 92 & 93, 97 - 99 — London Symphony Orchestra/Sir Colin Davis

    Anthony Kershaw
    22 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Sir Colin Davis (1927 - 2013) and the London Symphony Orchestra created great recordings over their 54 year association. His exceptional musicianship and his friendly relationship with orchestral players (he trained as a clarinettist) has made him a favourite with great orchestras like the LSO, Boston Symphony and Dresden Staatskapelle. Davis finally got his most beautiful musical feather when he assumed directorship of the LSO in 1995 and held the post until 2006. From all accounts, the members’ admiration for him grew and grew. Davis is famous for his interpretations of Berlioz,…
  • The Burson Audio Soloist Class A Headphone Amplifier/Pre Amplifier

    Henry Wilkenson
    18 Aug 2014 | 5:37 am
    Attending listening sessions at dealer showrooms are uniquely beneficial because you can experience a wide range of gear that you otherwise would not be able to hear. It was during such a session at Wes Bender Studio NYC that I encountered a couple of Burson Audio products. It wasn’t the headphone amplifier that first caught my eye—rather, it was a pair of bridged power amplifiers. These turned out to be the Burson Timekeeper amps. At first, their diminutive size made me assume that they were class D amps, but in fact they are class A/B 80 watts-per-channel stereo amps, offering 240wpc…
  • JS Bach: Brandenburg Concertos—Freiburger Barockorchester

    15 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    I was listening to a recording of Bach’s Violin Concerto in A Minor, BWV 1041, on WQXR, a public radio station in Manhattan. I was impressed by the beauty of tone of the Baroque violin, played by Petra Mullejans, a concert master of the Freiburger Barockorchester. Her command of the violin was captivating. I requested the CD from Harmonia Mundi. While on the Harmonia Mundi website, I noticed the aforementioned ensemble had issued many recordings, one of which is Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos, released in March of 2014. I requested this set of CDs, too. Prior to writing this review I…

The Ortofon cartridge was a major step up in analog playback, and having…
