  • Jose James, Yesterday I Had the Blues

    John Atkinson
    31 Mar 2015 | 10:50 am
    I'm usually not a fan of male baritone jazz singers, not even Johnny Hartman (except, of course, on his album with Coltrane): they tend too much toward the operatic, and they're usually too smooth, too eyebrow-arched suave, for my taste anyway. But Jose James is something else, and his new album, Yesterday I Had the Blues (Blue Note), goes down like a rare vintage port on a chilly night.Tue, 03/31/2015

Adding to the SRO factor were the workshops conducted by AudioQuest's Steve Silberman, under the title of Computer Audio Explained. (Actually, it was Audio Informatique Appliquée.)Tue, 03/31/2015

    Montreal dealer Coup de Foudre's exhibit featured the 2012 Stereophile Loudspeaker of the Year Vivid Audio Oval K1 (USD$26,000/pair), in a system featuring Luxman electronics. I've never heard these speakers sound anything less than great, and their sound at SSI 2015 did nothing to change my previous impression. I really liked the red of the demo pair, and asked importer Philip O'Hanlon if it was a popular choice. He said that although the red is much admired, most people end up choosing a different, more conservative, color. I guess I'm not like most people. My Avantgarde Uno Nanos are red,…

    As mentioned in my earlier report, Sony came to town with more than just a system's worth of ES-series components. As I discovered on Saturday morning, they also brought the new NW-ZX2 ($CAD1199), which is the new big brother—forgive the fraternal illogic of the metaphor—to last year's well-received ZX1. The new Sony, which will be reviewed by Michael Lavorgna in the May issue of Stereophile, offers the same Dynamic Sound Enhancing System as the company's HAP-Z1ES file player, and its amplifier is more powerful than that of the ZX1; perhaps best of all, the ZX2 provides 128GB of…

    So Sonic Studio sent out an email to customers about a week ago stating that an update to sQ would be available 3/31. Great. Nice of them to give us a heads up. Their website noted that, yes, the update would be available on March 31st. Today is March 31st. Their website says "Latest Version Available Now!" But there's no indication anywhere on the site as to where the update can be downloaded. (The download section of the site lists only sQ 2.0, not 2.1.) There are only buttons for going through and paying for the product again or downloading a "free trial." Neither of…
  • B&W P5 Series 2 - first impressions

    Looks like I'm in headphone buying mode recently. I just upgraded my main headphone rig from a Sennheiser HD595 to the amazing HD800, had to buy the matching HDVA600 amp, and now, having temporarily (hopefully...) misplaced my trusted B&W C5 in-ears I use for my frequent traveling, I want to my local headphone shop to buy a spare/replacement pair of in-ears. What did I end up bringing home? You can guess from the title. To be fair, I have wanted a P3 or P5 ever since B&W came out with these beautiful models, they are just so nice looking.

This works excellently, with an Apple TV and Roku in the video system, feeding to an AVR, which manages switching duties, upscaling, and decoding audio tracks. Enter the dragon, which is the hundreds of DVD's we have in the house. Ripping a DVD is a much more troublesome chore than ripping a CD. To start with, it takes…

It uses a 2-stage circuit that uses both triodes in the 12AX7 tube; its transformer ratio is approximately 10:1.The capsule is a 32mm K67 type, as can be found in most low-cost microphones. External switches provide independent high-pass filter and pad capabilities.The Liberator is internally identical to that of the Avantone CV-12, although the CV-12 has metal switches rather than plastic. Both of these mics differ from the popular Apex 460, both because these microphones have switches, and because the…
  • MXL Cr-24

    16 Mar 2015 | 1:49 pm
    The Cr-24 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a transformerless circuit. It appears to be a cosmetic variant of the 2003A, made with a black chrome finish for the company's "900 series" built exclusively for Guitar Center.Two switches mounted beneath the headbasket independently enable a 10dB pad, and a high-pass filter.The 2003A/CR24 uses a modified K67-type capsule; while the front backplate appears to be a standard 32mm K67 type, the rear backplate uses an alternative drilling pattern. This would change the microphone's operational characteristics, including proximity, pattern,…
  • RØDE NTR

    11 Mar 2015 | 11:40 am
    The NTR is an active bidirectional ribbon microphone that is built with several innovative processes and techniques. The mic's ribbon element is made from 1.8-micron aluminum. Although such thin material is used by many other ribbon manufacturers, Rode's innovation is to cut the aluminum foil with a laser instead of a razor. According to Rode, blades leave rough edges on the ribbon, leading to premature wear and failure.The foil is pressed between two gears to imprint the necessary corrugation, then tensioned by machine. We know of no other manufacturer using automation to tension ribbons.The…
  • Sony C-37A

    10 Feb 2015 | 10:55 pm
    The C-37A is a tube condenser microphone with an innovative mechanical control behind the capsule for polar pattern adjustment, and multiple EQ settings on the power supply.The microphone was reportedly inspired by Neumann's studio microphones of the era. The impedance circuit inside the microphone is exceptionally simple: a 6AU6 pentode vacuum tube (wired as a triode) and a few resistors. The mic's output transformer is located in the external power supply.During the mic's lifetime, Sony redesigned the power supply multiple times: from the CP-2, to the CP-3, to the CP-3B. We have not…
  • Neat Microphones King Bee

    7 Feb 2015 | 3:20 pm
    The King Bee is Neat's premier studio microphone. It is a large-diaphragm, fixed Cardioid condenser with a transformer-coupled output circuit. The capsule is a 34mm, externally polarized dual-backplate type. It is based on the K67 design, but tuned differently to match Neat's specifications. Only the front diaphragm is connected to the circuit; this approach is sometimes called "true Cardioid," and provides a ~6dB increase in signal level as compared to designs where a dual-diaphragm capsule has both diaphragms wired to the circuit.The impedance conversion circuit is is based around the…

I went to a couple of places and ended up with something that despite putting a massive dent on me financially, the sound was just perfect for my ears. It's a work in progress as of right now but I ended up picking up a pair of B&W Diamond 804s in piano black. I am pairing that with a Musical Fidelity M6si.

For example I have a 2-channel system for music on the living room. The living room is open to the diner and kitchen, also the ceiling is incline.

    Lesley Flanigan is an experimental electronic musician living in New York City. Inspired by the physicality of sound, she builds her own instruments. Performing these instruments alongside traditional instrumentation that often includes her own voice, she creates a kind of physical electronic music.

Periodically Flanigan enters the room and adds new elements to the system. As the textures react and build on each other, the space…

    Feedback is a phenomenon which is not uncommon in sound art. Steve Reich’s Pendulum Music used swinging microphones over speakers to create different tones in a certain rhythm, already back in 1968. There is something primeval about feedback, the way it can run out of control and become chaotic. Because of that, it’s no wonder there are still a lot of artists working with it. (all photos by Emily Gan) With his new series of works called The Sound of Empty Space, composer & media artist Adam Basanta explores relationships between microphones, speakers, and surrounding…

The audio topography of the oceans and the depth of ice crevasses are brought to the surface. She is concerned with finding and revealing sounds from hidden sources, both inaudible for the human senses and sounds from places and creatures difficult to access.

The Speakers: Like the Audiobyte system, it uses our 75-watt-per-channel amplifier, so it’s very powerful for this category of product. Also available in the line up is the M2-based version which is a 5.25-inch based speaker and the M3-based version which is a 6.5-inch based system.

His candid interviews of some of the biggest names in music are top-shelf also. Neither Apple nor Lowe have said what his position will be.

    I recall a time back in 2009 while working as a sound engineer for a local music label studio, I was privy to a new device called the Centrance MicPort.  It was something that made life a lot less stressful and I recall being very impressed by the technology.  Recently, Centrance released a new product called the Mini M8: a $699 Dac that seems to be intended for portable headphone usage. It wasn’t long ago that company released their slightly larger and much more powerful M8, which boasted claims of being able to drive any headphone on the planet, both with style and authority. They…

That makes it a phenomenal value in the sub $200 tier Build The headphone is light at only 240 grams or so.  As I’d mentioned in my recent review of Sony’s 950BT…Sony simply understands exterior design better than anyone else in the market.  Not only is the headphone comfortable,…
