Katoh MCG20 + MCG35C

By | February 3rd, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

Looking to get started into the world of nylon-stringed guitars, but overwhelmed by choice? Here, with the MCG20 and the MCG35C, Katoh offer a great quality at the entry-level end with two brilliant and distinct options. Words by Matt Withers.

Note: This piece first appeared in Australian Guitar #131Subscribe to our print edition here!

Firstly, the similarities: these two beginner guitars are inexpensive instruments, handmade by expertly trained and experienced manufactures in Guangzhou, China. Both have standard string length and an easy-feel neck that doesn’t seem thick like some classical guitars do, making it smooth and giving the player the best start to their nylon-stringed musical pursuit.… Read the full article

I am now consciously trying to reduce the stresses of modern living by making my own life as simple as possible. When I want to play music, I rather like that I can just pop a CD in a drawer, press play and be listening to music immediately.… Read the full article

AV Options ULTRA-HBL 6 Outlet Power Strip with 6 Foot AVO Deep Cryo Cord

By | February 3rd, 2019|Categories: Analog planet|

In a modern high-performance audio system running out of A.C. jacks is easy, especially if you have only a single-ganged wall jack. But even with a dual jack you’ve only got four-plug A.C. access. So, what’s the solution? If you believe in power conditioning (which is hardly controversial since every recording studio in the world does, though some audio fools don’t), you can add additional jacks with one of those.

It wasn’t exactly heroic or even particularly daring, but has anyone ever attempted to install a phono cartridge while facing a room full of audiophiles at a hi-fi show, as I did during my “Analog Clinic” at Home Entertainment 2004 in May? Not that I know of.


Despite the Clinic’s being scheduled at 2:30 Sunday afternoon, the butt end of the Show, the seats were filled.
