            Finally it was time to replace a 17 year old Sony Direct Drive turntable that was beginning to groan and also make rubbing sounds from the platter on the little playback head that regulated the speed… and replace it with a Linn Basik – belt drive little sister to the classic Linn Sondek (at about a fifth of the price of the Sondek). Nearly there… only new speakers, amp and cd player to go and we will have finished this series…standby!

    Guess what I found today while pulling the carpet out from under my cabinets (in preparation to build them in with a new floor)? A dedicated 20 amp circuit. I had to move the outlet a few feet, but still... (There was a circuit suggestively labelled "amp" when I bought the house, but I never could find it because it was behind a bookcase I installed before getting the audio equipment.)

    When I entered the On A Higher Note room on the Marriott's mezzanine, Synergistic Research's Ted Denney was talking about the sonic benefits of his new Atmosphere ($1995, the vertical black tower between the equipment racks in the photograph). "RF pollution affects how we perceive sound," Ted said," explaining that that is why our systems unpredictably sound good or bad. The Atmosphere, he said, creates a binaural RF field that swamps external RF pollution, allowing our perception to operate correctly. It affects the listener, not the system . . . "Yeah, right," I was thinking.Sat, 10/18/2014

No. Well, finally on the last RMAF day I got to sit up close in a dem hosted by Sony's Motoyuki "Yuki" Sugiura (above) and see if I, too, thought the Sony SS-AR2s ($20,000/pair) were as neutral, lively, well-balanced, detailed, and transparent as JA said.

    I've recently found, to my disappointment that my three cloned external drives sound different. I tried all both bus and 5v supply powered and one still sounds clearly better. The difference is pretty audible ( ambiance cues and such) and the one I like the best (Oyan Digital Pro Mini 1 TB) is no longer available as it was produced when I purchased it three or four years back. Even tech support from Oyan Digital admitted that my older 1 TB could sound better than my newer 2TB from them. Could anyone share with me what FireWire external drives have sounded best in either 1 or 2 TB.

    While chatting with many of our users at NAB, IBC, and AES, it’s clear that loudness measurement and conformity is a crucial element in preparing their content for broadcast.  The CALM Act in the USA, and similar acts in countries around the world, enforce strict requirements on loudness measurement of content, with many standards such as ITU BS.1770, EBU R128,  ARIB TR-B32, or ATSC A/85.  Unlike the old days, where editors just had to make sure their levels didn’t go into the read, the new standards can require significantly more attention while mixing, or may benefit from…

Up to this point for the past two years we have been using a basic template that slowly evolves each week by recalling whole channel presets for instrumentalists and vocalists. There are pros and cons on both sides of the table.On the one hand changes to the template are captured each week and you start from last week and don't have to reinvent the wheel by starting from a new template by dropping in presets every week. There is weekly momentum.

Since we make all of our measurements in dB-A weighting  slow it made sense to use make an A-weighted measurement of each seat within the seating area.

  • Neumann U47 fet Collectors Edition

    19 Oct 2014 | 10:13 pm
    The U 47 fet, also known as the fet 47, was originally manufactured by Neumann from 1969 through 1986, and remained in inventory through 1989. The mic was re-released as a "Collector's Edition" at the AES convention in Los Angeles in October, 2014.According to Neumann staff, the Collector's Edition is not a limited edition or limited production run. The microphone is part of the company's product line for as long as it continues to sell.Jürgen Breitlow, director of Research and Development for Neumann, says the original U47 FET went through six circuit revisions during its lifetime.

  • Cloud Microphones 44-A

    19 Oct 2014 | 7:12 pm
    The Cloud Microphones 44-A is an active ribbon microphone inspired by the RCA 44, with an innovative "music/voice" switch to improve the mic's versatility. It is the active version of the Cloud 44, which is a special edition of the JRS-34 manufactured exclusively for Zen Pro Audio.The 44-A is built into the body designed for its sibling mic, the JRS-34. The 44-A ribbon is the same as in the JRS-34, but is housed in a motor that differs from that of the JRS-34. While both use Stephen Sank's innovative spring-loaded motor frame, the 44-A employs magnets of rectangular cross-section, whereas the…
  • Pearlman Microphones TM-47

    Dave Pearlman's TM-47 is a tube microphone modeled on the Neumann U47.The capsule is Pearlman's version of the K47, manufactured in Southern California. Like the original K47, this capsule has a single backplate measuring 34mm O.D., and uses diaphragms made of 6-micron Mylar, metallized with gold.The circuit is as found in the U47, with either a Telefunken EF12 or EF14 steel tube. The transformer is described as a historically accurate BV8 type. The output capacitor is a vintage-style "paper in oil" type.We will provide more details about this microphone when they are made available.TM-47…

    The SU-011 is a tube microphone with detachable capsules, built into a compact small-diaphragm form factor. Yet its ability to host large diaphragm capsules from its sibling SU-017 makes it a "hybrid microphone" design, like the Oktava MK-012 and 3-Zigma CHI series.The tube is a subminiature glass pentode, called the 6S6B-V when transliterated from the Cyrillic designation.We do not have specifics about the SU-011 circuit, except to say that it differs from the SU-017. The SU-011's output transformer is located in the power supply.The microphone was first shown publicly at the AES show in Los…
  • AEA N8

    19 Oct 2014 | 11:23 am
    The N8 is the second active ribbon mic in AEA's "Nuvo" series, following the N22. The N8 shares the N22's body and grille construction, although it has a black rather than silver finish. The N8 also shares the N22's ribbon dimensions, transformer, and active transformerless electronics. These mics' electronics operate at unity gain; the output signal from the ribbon is amplified by a Lehle step-up transformer. The circuitry following the transformer serves to lower the output impedance to 92Ω without applying additional gain.The ribbon in both Nuvo mics measures roughly 4.7mm x 60mm,…

  • High frequency lacking with new RP6 with Exact

    sddawson
    21 Oct 2014 | 12:47 am
    I have an old Alphason Solo turntable fitted with a Dynavector Karat 17D2 MkII MC cartridge. Phono stage is a similar-vintage Michell ISO. The turntable is on its last legs really, and I thought I'd update to something more modern, so I purchased a Rega RP6 fitted with an Exact cartridge, and a Primare R32 phono stage. As soon as I put on my first record (Sgt. Pepper), I could hear that higher frequencies were lacking. Doing A/B tests between vinyl and computer source confirmed this. Doing the same A/B tests with the Alphason setup were fine. The Alphason plugged into the Primare is also fine…

    Last week, during Amsterdam Dance Event, 4DSOUND presented their system with artists like Vladislav Delay, Max Cooper, an evening with artists from the Raster Noton label, and various talks and workshops.  Looking like something which could’ve been next to the Philips Pavilion at the World’s Fair back in ‘58, the structure alone is already quite amazing, even before any sounds are heard. It is said it was inspired by Tesla, and it shows. (photo by Georg Schroll) The way the audience listened, with such pure focus, is rarely seen these days and got me thinking about what…

    We’ve seen the works of Paris-based artist Ryoji Ikeda before. They are often raw, glitchy works exploring data sonifications and, more recently, the combination with visuals. Ryoji’s latest work, or rather update of the work superposition is described as follows: A multimedia music, visual, and theater work at the intersection of art and science, superposition, inspired by the subatomic world, mines the notion that it is not possible to fully describe the behavior of a single particle except in terms of probabilities.

    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…

Yet this 3-disc boxed set (comprising material originally released between 2005-8) makes a couple of claims to surprise those of us who hold these works dear. Firstly, that there were actually SIX piano concertos – based on the fact that Beethoven himself arranged the lone Violin Concerto Op.61…

    There are several reasons why I got involved in reviewing these headphones. First, I gifted my trusty Grado 125 headphones to the son of my colleague Karl Sigman. Karl and his son Jason came over for a visit and Jason let it be known that he wanted to get Beats headphones for a birthday present, because ‘they are cool’. Peer pressure was a powerful motivator for the soon to be 12 year old. I asked Jason to try the Grado 125s. He was mesmerized by the sound and it was a joy to see his reaction. ‘Dad, I have to have them.’ After the visit was over, I called Karl and told…

SAM is an optimized program for your individual speaker (Devialet is constantly adding new SAM profiles to their website) that…

Last year, I had the pleasure of reviewing Peachtree’s nova125 integrated and, while I enjoyed both its form and function, I wondered what impact nearly doubling its power would have on the notoriously power-hungry Magnepan 1.6 speakers. Well, I now know—and it’s been worth the wait. The nova220SE possesses tremendous grip, never letting the Magnepans…

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. However, it is impossible to compare like-with-like with regards to Songs of Innocence, because no-one knows how many times people would have bought the album if it wasn;t delivered to their iPhone or iPad for free by Apple.
