So, why would you want a wireless guitar system in the first place? Chances are, you’re not The Boss and don’t need to be able to run to every part of a stadium stage. But even those of us playing smaller venues can get justifiably irritated by instrument cables.… Read the full article

Lumin Power Amp

By | June 23rd, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

Lumin equipment is undeniably beautiful-looking, but until now, you’ve not been able to buy a matching power amplifier. The new Lumin AMP power amplifier is a perfect cosmetic match with many Lumin components and exactly the same width and depth as several of the company’s network streamers. (Click images to enlarge.)

Rated with a power output of 160-watts per channel into 8Ω, 320-watts per channel into 4Ω and 640-watts if you bridge the left and right channels for mono operation, the new Lumin power AMP is a linear Class-AB d.c.-coupled design with fully discrete voltage and current gain stages and built-in overload, thermal and d.c.… Read the full article

Canjam Socal 2019: Part One with Campfire Audio and the Kaldas Electrostatic

By | June 23rd, 2019|Categories: Innerfidelity|

CanJam Socal 2019 really knows their audience – the show didn’t start until a leisurely 10 a.m. on Saturday, which seemed to go over pretty well with the attending crowd and exhibitors.

The main area isn’t massive, part of which helps retain the nice cozy feel that I personally enjoy so much about meets and CanJams. The heavily-carpeted hall area and low ceilings generally helped keep background noise to tolerable levels, and I was able to get some relatively uninterrupted listening time before the crowds started to show up.… Read the full article

Jomo Audio

A headphone which launched in Hong Kong a little over two months ago, Jomo Audio’s new UIEM Game Raider (estimated near $500 USD) is the world’s first (U)IEM made specifically for the mobile gaming and console E-Sports market. The Game Raider UIEM is designed around a “large” balanced armature driver, mated to a 10mm dynamic driver, and featuring a 3D-printed acoustical structure inside.

Cameroon vs England live stream: how to watch Women’s World Cup 2019 match from anywhere

By | June 23rd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Game on! Although they enjoyed a flawless group stage campaign with three wins from three, England didn't emphatically blow away of their opponents in the same way that other 2019 Women's World Cup contenders like France and the USA have. They now face a testing challenge in the first knockout stage – make sure you don't miss a minute with a Cameroon vs England live stream today.

It's unlikely Cameroon will be a push-over – the African side have had to battle their way to get to the last 16, and their last-gasp win over New Zealand will ensure they'll go into this game with confidence at a high.… Read the full article

Setup Day – CanJam SoCal 2019

By | June 23rd, 2019|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , |

The Irvine Marriot has a good setup for a headphone show. A large open convention space surrounded by an old western wagon circle of smaller, private listening rooms makes for a good defense against any bright, sunny Los Angeles days.

Sunny days in LA are easy to come by however, and large collections of headphone demos are not. Ripe with product releases deep into personal audio, CanJam SoCal 2019 fires up this weekend with a fervor. Setup day differs slightly from your run-of-the-mill two channel show as operational hours grace only Saturday and Sunday for the event.… Read the full article
