Welcome to Jeff's Place

By | January 12th, 2019|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: |

Greetings music lovers, and welcome to the new Jeff’s Place located at Positive Feedback!

Dave & David offering a no-cost-to-me spot on Positive Feedback servers is a big help, not only from a cost standpoint, but also from an IT support, website security, archival, etc., standpoint.

Locating Jeff’s Place at Positive Feedback is a win-win for both web sites in that it will bring new readers to Jeff’s Place from Positive Feedback that wouldn’t normally be visiting, and vice-versa.

You’ll see that all the great content of Jeff’s Place has been preserved, which is fantastic, but you will notice a couple of changes to Jeff’s Place as a result of the move to Positive Feedback.… Read the full article

Epiphone To Launch First New Guitar For 2019: The DC Pro

By | January 12th, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

Though their feet are stuck firmly in the future of guitar-making, Epiphone look back to the ’70s with this modernised take on a venerable shredder’s classic. The DC Pro is Epiphone’s first new guitar announced for 2019, and with it set to launch in five equally beautiful finishes (Black Cherry, Faded Cherry Burst, Midnight Ebony, Mojave Fade and Wild Ivy), it’s sure to catch some looks when it’s showcased at this year’s NAMM festival.

Taking its visual cues from Epiphone’s inimitable Del Rey Double Cut design, which the Gibson offshoot popularised in the ’70s, the DC Pro rocks a AAA flame maple ‘veneer’ top, mahogany body and neck (the latter clocking in at 24.75 inches) and a Pau Ferro fretboard.… Read the full article

By | January 12th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , , , |

Publisher’s note: Audio Note UK has graciously provided the following article detailing the conceptualization and design of the EVGA Nu Audio Card in collaboration with EVGA.

(The EVGA Nu Audio Card is scheduled for launch on January 16, 2019. Price is $249. See the Audio News announcement.)

iPhone 11 tipped to have faster Wi-Fi, but 5G might have to wait

By | January 12th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

It's closing in on four months since the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR were revealed by Apple, which means it's high time we started thinking about what the 2019 iPhones might have to offer – and the rumors swirling this weekend are focusing on the sort of wireless tech the handsets could introduce.

According to Barclays analyst Blaine Curtis, the iPhone 11 (or whatever it ends up being called) could well include support for Wi-Fi 6, also known as 802.11ax: the fastest Wi-Fi standard in existence.… Read the full article

Google pulls plug on Chromecast Audio

By | January 12th, 2019|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , , |

Do you want the good news or the bad news?

We’ll start with the bad: citing weaker sales figures than its video-capable counterpart, Google is discontinuing its Chromecast Audio streamer.

The Chromecast Audio was launched in 2015 to overnight become the most affordable music streamer this side of a Raspberry Pi. It was even made Roon capable last year to become the cheapest Roon endpoint available.

The sound quality of the Chromecast’s internal DAC is exactly what we might expect from a US$35 device – nothing special – but for a better-sounding Chromecast experience, we tap the 3.5mm socket’s mini-TOSLINK digital output for connection to an external DAC.… Read the full article

Google confirms it’s the end of the road for the Chromecast Audio

By | January 12th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Farewell then, to the Chromecast Audio dongle – Google has confirmed it's discontinuing the product, which was launched back in 2015. The product is no longer available to buy direct from Google, and it won't be getting restocked.

For those who aren't aware, the Chromecast Audio dongle was designed to attach to a regular speaker via a 3.5 mm audio cable, and pipe through audio from Chromecast-compatible apps on other devices – though if you haven't heard of the Chromecast Audio before now, you're a bit late to the party.… Read the full article

The Redmi Note 7 smartphone has officially been launched at an event in Beijing, China. At the same event, Xiaomi confirmed the earlier news that Redmi would be an independent brand, going forward.

Paradigm Defiance X12 and V12 Subwoofers Review

By | January 12th, 2019|Categories: Audioholics|Tags: |

Paradigm Defiance coneDefiance X12 & V12 Subwoofers Introduction

Among the larger home audio loudspeaker manufacturers, Paradigm has developed a reputation for taking their subwoofer products seriously. Many of the larger and more well-known home audio speaker brands don’t seem to put as much effort into their subwoofers as they do their other loudspeakers. For many brands, subwoofers are usually just treated as an accessory to some product line, almost as a ‘necessary evil’ for customers who want to complete a surround sound system.… Read the full article
