Powerbeats Pro Announced – Changing Audiophile Norms?

By | April 4th, 2019|Categories: Innerfidelity|

I was thinking, what does audiophile even mean anymore? Especially in the headphone community.

I mean, if you were ask the average person thinking of dropping $250 USD on a pair of the just announced Powerbeats Pro headphones, I’m pretty sure they’d say that those qualify as audiophile, but you’d probably have to explain what that even means… do 95 per cent of people who own good gear even consider themselves an audiophile anymore? More importantly, do they even care?

In my experience, most people think spending more than $500 on a set of cans or IEMs is a bit crazy or if they don’t, they do think it’s serious business.… Read the full article

By | April 4th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Here at TechRadar, we're obsessed with the new, the exciting and the future of technology – so imagine the excitement at getting to try out 5G in the wild for the first time.

Verizon unexpectedly got a jump on many other countries – including South Korea, where the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G just launched – and deployed its 5G network in Chicago. 

We spent hours trawling the streets looking for the only handset that could support it (the Moto Z3 with a 5G Mod slapped on the back) and then hung around in the limited spaces where 5G signal was being broadcast.… Read the full article

Jean-Michel Jarre: Organic meets Electronic

By | April 4th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

“I have an organic approach toward music but I’ve always been interested in electronics,” says Jean-Michel Jarre, whose luxurious electronic pop conquered the world in 1976 with his hit album Oxygène. Even today, Oxygène‘s bubbling tones and saturated textures provide a blissful sonic experience. “I love jazz because of its organic approach to sound, and I’ve been influenced by that. I always thought that jazz and electronic music have much more in common than we think.”

After planting his electronic-music flag, Jarre has enjoyed a level of success shared by few, having sold 80 million albums in a recording career of nearly 50 years.… Read the full article

Gramophone Dreams #27: EleKit TU-8600R amplifier kit

By | April 4th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

I will never forget.

In 1988 I had my first experience with Western Electric 300B tubes. It took place on a quiet, streetlights-and-snow night at my friend Ryoichi’s apartment on Riverside Drive, in Manhattan.

I had never heard of the late Japanese amplifier designer Ken Shindo, of Shindo Laboratory. But that evening, Ryo’s audio system was all Shindo: a hammertone gray Shindo-restored, grease-bearing Garrard 301 turntable sitting on a glossy-wood Shindo plinth of glossy wood, with a Shindo-modified Ortofon tonearm and SPU cartridge, a Shindo moving-coil step-up transformer, and a Shindo preamplifier with a moving-magnet phono stage.… Read the full article
