Best MP3 Player 2019: TechRadar’s guide to the best portable music players

By | September 15th, 2017|Categories: TechRadar|

The Unissued Hi-Fi Album of Bob Mielke and The Bearcats, 1955

By | September 15th, 2017|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

This is the tale of a failed early stereo album that would have been the premier recording by a legendary San Francisco revival jazz group, Bob Mielke and The Bearcats Jazz Band, although it never issued a record.

Recent recovery of the original master tape makes possible presentation of the extraordinary two-microphone “mid-side” stereo artifact described below and offered for the first time. My thanks to Constantine Soo for the invitation to share with Dagogo readers these exclusive audiovisual treasures.

Much as 1955’s Rebel Without a Cause and 1969’s Easy Rider defined the youth-culture zeitgeist of their respective decades, 1977’s Saturday Night Fever deftly captured the me-decade essence of the 1970s, instantly catapulting John Travolta to the A-list in the process.

In 2002, Sony Entertainment kicked off the Resident Evil film series based on the popular zombie apocalypse video game of the same name. Fifteen years and five sequels later, the beleaguered franchise comes to a close… sort of. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is technically the last installment in the long-running series, but plans are already afoot to reboot the entire franchise and start over again from square one.

DEVIALET-LOST-RECORDINGS-2

Ella is found.

Despite their penchant for all things digital, Devialet has a soft spot for vinyl. Witness their fifth LP release in just over a year with Ella Fitzgerald Live at the Concertgebouw – 1961. This follows Sarah Vaughan, Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, and Dave Brubeck, and continues the series focus of “Lost Recordings.”

I’ve not heard the vinyl copies yet, but have been given the opportunity to download 24-bit samples to listen to, and the sonics of those cuts are impressive indeed.… Read the full article

Elekit TU8600 Amplifier Kit

Review by Noam Bronstein

As music pours out of Elekit’s new amp through my speakers, I’m smiling, and remembering that some things are much more than the sum of their parts.

For you guys who need to scroll down to the conclusion, I’ll save you the trouble. The Elekit TU8600 is a superb amp, and an excellent value.… Read the full article
