    If you live in a small apartment or a dorm, or you’re looking for a sound system for your office, small stereo bookshelf speakers are usually the way to go. They take up less space than traditional sound systems, are simple to set up, and generally offer better sound quality than the speakers attached to your computer, small TV, or portable device. But as we’ve all experienced, getting connected to analog speakers can be a drag. Running cables under carpets or through walls in a rental isn’t always a possibility, and nobody likes having wires pinned along the molding and…

    There are many choices when it comes to full-sized headphones. Mark Henninger reviews a pair that stands out from the pack. ------- Welcome to the golden era of full-sized headphones. Thanks the popularity of the Beats brand, spending $300 or $400 on headphones no longer seems like an extravagance. As a result, there is a plethora of options in that price range. With the Blue Mo-Fi, I found a pair that outperforms some of the most popular brands out there. You could even say it "beats" the competition.

  • Ayre Acoustics KX-R Twenty line preamplifier

    Jon Iverson
    26 Nov 2014 | 11:02 am
    The experience left me doubting my ears. After I'd performed all the measurements of Ayre Acoustics' KX-R preamplifier ($18,500) to accompany Wes Phillips's review in our November 2008 issue, I spent a weekend listening to it. To my astonishment, the sound of my system with a Transporter D/A processor feeding the preamplifier was better than when the DAC fed the power amplifier directly. Through the KX-R, images sounded more tangible, and the sound was better focused, despite the signal's having been passed through not just another set of interconnects but also through the preamp's input and…

    With increasing frequency, many audiophiles and industry professionals have accepted that the quest for highest-quality sound quality is a luxury and esoteric pursuit that, by its very nature, can appeal to only a small niche market. According to this view, the masses—the 99%, if you will—are either satisfied with Pioneer, Bose, Samsung, Dr. Dre, and iPhone/Android/tablet sound; can't tell the difference between quality and dreck; or will never have the money or imagination to move beyond lowest-common-denominator sound.

We got them about four years old, used [from Alvino at the old Sound Hounds. We still see Alvino at RMAF once in awhile. If you want to blame someone, blame him :-)], and they were so much better than the $4K Denon and the Adcom 555 (I think) before that. So much more authority and openness.

    If you live in a small apartment or a dorm, or you’re looking for a sound system for your office, small stereo bookshelf speakers are usually the way to go. They take up less space than traditional sound systems, are simple to set up, and generally offer better sound quality than the speakers attached to your computer, small TV, or portable device. But as we’ve all experienced, getting connected to analog speakers can be a drag. Running cables under carpets or through walls in a rental isn’t always a possibility, and nobody likes having wires pinned along the molding and…

They also seem to think that if you/they utilize streaming media services, that means they aren't allowed to buy physical product. This is simply an untrue characterization and ideal.

    Fancy that, a major headline on BBC R4, the amazing rebirth of vinyl records. Those of us who stuck with the format right through the last thirty years may feel a sense of satisfaction. Like it or not, it has become the last, best, physical medium. Sales are small compared with downloads , but high quality goods always sell in far smaller numbers than commodity stuff. As for cd...it was always a miserable medium, in a cheap, tatty, plastic box. Good riddance to that ugliness.

    Konrad Smoleński is an artist working in different fields, often collaborating with other artists and musicians. He works and lives in Warschau and Bern. His works are often big and sculptural, connected to sound or video. His work “Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More”, is a sculptural instrument written for two bronze bells, two walls of loudspeakers and resonating objects, in this case resonating lockers. The composition links the rich symbolic sound of the clocks to the abstract sound of reverb and resonating noise. By using delay and other effects, Smoleński creates…

I saw his work “If I Should Live in the Past, I Wouldn’t Need a Memory” last week at Arti in Amsterdam.

Next to the lungs hangs a birdcage, which refers to the miners who took a canary into the…

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra has been recorded before. Mediocre sessions on EMI during the Andrew Davis years and a few better recordings with Ozawa on RCA and Columbia back in the ’60s. Chandos Records has a track record of producing superb sounding recordings, primarily due to the indefatigable Couzens team, Brian producer, and Ralph, engineer. This recording, taken live…

    Mahler – Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection” [78:00] Cutting / Turner / Emmerson / Kelly - Piano Melba MR301144 (2014) As off-the-wall as Linn’s recent release (CKD438) of a chamber arrangement of Mahler’s “little” 4th Symphony had seemed, this new disc from Australia’s Melba label absolutely takes the cake! A reduction of the famously huge “Resurrection” Symphony for piano might seem impossible, yet Mahler conceived large parts of it on that instrument, and the practice was far from uncommon at the end of the 19th Century. In a time before recordings, when many would never have…

Royal Theatre, Victoria, BC — When I had the privilege of performing Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece, his War Requiem at London’s Royal Festival Hall in 1981, performances of this gigantic, difficult work were not commonplace.

    Our publisher has been a Rega fan since the fateful day in the mid-’80s when we happened by our local dealer (Audio Emporium in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) to find them opening a shipment of Planar 3 turntables.  As they lifted a bright, fluorescent green table out, the sales guy quipped, “What idiot would buy a turntable in this color?”  Little did he know that’s been publisher Dorgay’s favorite color since age 6.  He solemnly replied, “I’m that idiot!” and we took that little British table back to his listening room and were subsequently blown away, being Technics SL-1200 guys…

    17 Nov 2014 | 4:43 pm
    If you are lucky enough to have tried bespoke tailoring in Savile Row, you will know that nothing off the rack really comes close to it. The term “bespoke” originates in Savile Row, a street in Mayfair, Central London, famous for prestigious tailoring for the individual customer.  It is understood to mean that a suit is custom measured, cut and made by hand to provide a perfect fit where it literally hugs one’s body. In the world of high-end analog audio, if there is such a thing as a “bespoke tonearm,” the Primary Control tonearm from the Netherlands fits this description. Primary…

    VPI’s Classic One set the standard for analog performance at its price a few years ago when introduced and one is still in service at TONEAudio as a reference component, recently revised by Harry Weisfeld to accommodate an Eminent Technologies tonearm. The Classic Two builds on the success of the Classic One, with the primary difference being the ability to adjust the VTA on the fly while the record is playing, giving the analog enthusiast more control and adjustability than the One does.  Sound quality is very similar, so if you are a more monogamous audiophile who tends to stick with a…

  • Alta Audio FRM-2 Speakers

    10 Nov 2014 | 10:54 am
    The arrival of the Alta Audio FRM-2 loudspeakers exposed a certain prejudice or bias of mine against ribbon tweeters. But it’s a valid one, as I’d never heard a ribbon tweeter that was properly integrated with the rest of the drivers in the system, nor had I ever experienced a ribbon tweeter with a natural high end.  My audio pals with a penchant for razor-sharp transients swear by them, but I’d always come away from them fatigued.  So I must admit that when I was unpacking these scrumptious speakers, my heart sank just a little bit. And speaking of scrumptious, to someone who spent…

    An increasing number of artists making headlines became famous as a result of performing at music festivals. This increase in the popularity of festival artists is due to many being independent. Because independent artists don’t have recourse to the marketing campaigns that artists with large record companies do, they must rely on festivals and other means for publicity. Jordan Kurland is a partner of Noise Pop, co-founder of Treasure Island Music Festival and a board member of the Stern Grove Festival.

Measured against album sales of other artists 26 million is phenomenal, with Beyonce’s very popular self-titled 2013 record only managing 3,366,000 sales worldwide.

The Beatles at Shea stadium, New York, 15 August 1965 Considering the sound was awful, there was no lighting show, no screens and no one could see the band, you may wonder how this gig has made it to the top of the list ­- but it was a world changing concert that paved the way for the large stadium and arena tours that we know today. No music act had ever filled a stadium before or sold so many tickets for a one off performance, so this concert set a precedent for where live music was going. These were the days before the band had the luxury of stage crew, bodyguards, event staff or…

J-Lo teamed up with rapper Pitbull to create We Are One (Ole Ola), featuring further vocals sung in Portuguese from singer Claudia Lette. The song sees Pitbull inviting listeners to put their flags up to the sky, while the Aint It Funny singer Jennifer Lopez warns us that a million eyes will be watching the famed tournament.
