 SHOOTOUT 
 ACOUSTICS AROUND A THOUSAND BUCKS 

Words by Peter Hodgson

Epiphone Hummingbird PRO

We’re living in a unique time for acoustic guitar manufacturers. Today, there’s a real sweet spot around the $1,000 mark: it’s where some of the super big brands place stripped-down guitars that do away with some of the visual flash in order to give you a sweet prestige-name instrument. It’s also where some of the more wallet-friendly brands place their upgraded guitars – the ones with extra flash and more sophisticated preamps. … Read the full article

As we’re gearing up for the launch of the Intel Core i9-9900KS ­– with some motherboard manufacturers already releasing motherboard firmware ­to support the new processor – new documentations surface to suggest that the more powerful iteration of Intel Core i9-9900K could potentially hit the streets with a 127W TDP (thermal design power).

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2019: Parting Thoughts

By | September 21st, 2019|Categories: Audiostream|

One question that always seems to be raised around audio shows in the United States is “was this audio show a success?” It seems to me the correct answer to that question depends on both who the intended response is for, and how do they gauge success from their vantage point.

Hulu vs Netflix: which TV streaming platform do you choose?

By | September 21st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Hulu or Netflix? Netflix or Hulu? In an increasingly crowded TV streaming market, it’s harder than ever to suss out exactly what each platform does differently, and which one might be best suited to your own tastes, needs, and budget. Each has different shows and films to choose from, after all.

This question will only get harder with the launch of Apple TV Plus and Disney Plus in 2019 – especially since the latter will offer some tempting bundles with Hulu and ESPN+ subscriptions.… Read the full article

Klipsch RP600-M, Cambridge Audio | RMAF 2019

By | September 21st, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

I walked into this Klipsch room before the one I reported on yesterday, and I was a little disappointed to find a pair of Klipsch RP600-M loudspeakers ($549/pair in walnut or black, $649 for piano gloss) instead of something from the Heritage line. I have nothing against Klipsch’s other speaker lines, but I just don’t get as excited about them as I do a gorgeous pair of La Scalas or Cornwalls. For many years Klipsch has made more affordable speakers with this specific look, black cabinets, copper woofer cone, tweeter recessed in a waveguide inset, but the Klipsch RP600-M seems to mark a turning point for affordable speakers.… Read the full article

Australia vs Fiji live stream: how to watch today’s Rugby World Cup 2019 match from anywhere

By | September 21st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

With the Rugby World Cup 2019 now upon us, Australia will be hoping for a bit more consistency, following an indifferent showing in their warm-up games. With plenty of power through the team, Fiji offer a tough start for Australia and are more than capable of pulling off an early shock. We'll give you the low down on how to get a Australia vs Fiji live stream below, no matter where you are in the world.

The Wallabies have only managed ten wins in their last five games, and while a win against New Zealand at home last moth impressed, their erratic recent form was perfectly illustrated by the thrashing handed it out to them by the All Blacks in the return fixture.… Read the full article
