The grandly named T+A Elektroakustik GmbH was a company hitherto unknown to me. After years in the business, many reviews, shows, events and store visits, I was surprised such a highly regarded company had escaped my notice. I’m going to set that straight with an in depth look at one of the company’s DACs, the DAC 8 DSD High End D/A Converter.

T+A is a German company founded in 1978 and produces a full range of electronics and loudspeakers. The company is based in Herford, very close to my old stomping grounds in Westphalia.… Read the full article

Leaked trailer shows off Battlefield V’s explosive battle royale mode

By | March 8th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Battlefield V is soon to get a battle royale mode called Firestorm, and a leaked trailer has given us a good idea of what it will involve.

Still, it would be foolish to declare the footage genuine at this point, obviously.

At any rate, you can check it out for yourself, and make your own mind up: grab a snack, or your beverage of choice, and hit play on the clip below.… Read the full article

The Opera that Deserves its Grammy

By | March 8th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

Given its engrossing, frequently radiant score, unflinching look at its timely subject matter, and superb cast of singing actors, Pentatone’s live hi-rez recording of the premiere of Mason Bates and Mark Campbell’s opera, The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, fully deserves the Grammy recently bestowed upon it by the Recording Academy.

I auditioned the recording after first enthusiastically reviewing the 2017 Santa Fe Opera world premiere, then cheered the differently cast 2019 Seattle Opera production (whose second cast is completing its run as this review appears on-line).… Read the full article

Cyberattacks costing businesses millions each year

By | March 8th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Dealing with cyberattacks is becoming increasingly costly for businesses according to new research from Accenture and the Ponemon Institute which have revealed that malware and “malicious insider” related attacks accounted for one-third of all cyberattack costs in 2018.

The firm interviewed over 2,600 security and IT professionals at 355 organizations worldwide to compile its “Cost of Cybercrime Study” that found the cost to businesses due to malware increased by 11 percent to more than $2.6m per company.
