New Zealand vs Ireland live stream: how to watch Rugby World Cup 2019 quarter-final from anywhere

By | October 18th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Ireland's shock defeat to Japan placed them on a path they would never have wanted. Their runners-up status in Pool A has lead them to an unenviable 2019 Rugby World Cup face-off with heavy pre-tournament favourites, the All Blacks. And you can watch the action as it happens -from basicaly anywhere in the world – with our New Zealand vs Ireland live stream guide.

The All Blacks have been in imperious form in the Pool stages of the tournament, and look in good shape to win their third title on the trot. 

Nevertheless, the Irish famously won the last encounter between the two sides in a victory that caused many pundits to tip them for glory in Japan.… Read the full article

This rugged phone has an awesome “Predator” heat-viewing mode

By | October 18th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

If there’s one smartphone feature that captures everyone’s imagination, it is the thermal camera.

Already available in the likes of the Cat S60 or Cat S61, this feature allows you to generate a colourful image based on the levels of heat source around you.

Until recently though, such a feature was only available either as a standalone product – usually courtesy of FLIR – or on smartphones that were not exactly cutting edge or cheap.

VAF I-35 VAF I-45

By | October 18th, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

South Australian loudspeaker manufacturer VAF Research has introduced two new speakers, the VAF I-35 and the VAF I-45. The VAF I-35 is an entry-level two-way floor-standing speaker that replaces the company’s I-33, and the VAF I-45 is a true three-way floor-stander.

The VAF I-35 (pictured right, at the left) uses the same dual concentric coaxial driver as VAF’s stand-mount I-25 design, but because the driver is mounted in a cabinet with far greater volume than the I-25, it has a more extended bass response in the I-35, with VAF claiming a 3dB downpoint of 35Hz.… Read the full article

Grandinote Server, Integrated Amplifier, and Speakers, Nordost Cabling

By | October 18th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

The problem with the line array is interference at high frequencies, resulting in combed frequency response at those high frequencies. It would not be a problem at frequencies below which all radiating drivers are within one quarter wavelength, effectively a point source, and not the case of a line source. For a line source, it is not a significant problem at frequencies below where center to center driver separation is less than quarter wavelength, but is pronounced where that distance exceeds one wavelength, with transition in between those bounds.… Read the full article

Roksan Record Player, Rotel Electronics, Monitor Audio Speakers, Nordost Cables

By | October 18th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

Making their North American debut in the Rotel/Monitor Audio room were Rotel’s P5 preamp, with built-in 32- bit/768kHz DAC ($CAD5299), and 1080Wpc M8 mono amps ($CAD18,000/pair). Speakers were Monitor Audio Gold 300s, said to employ technology trickled down from the company’s flagship Platinum ll model.

The source consisted of the Roksan 20 Plus turntable ($CAD5300) with Sara unipivot tonearm ($CAD3600) and Shiraz cartridge ($CAD5300). Roksan’s Caspian VSC S2 speed control/phono stage completed the package. Though lacking in ultimate scale and bloom, the sound of the system was delicate and detailed, with good flow and a nice sense of rhythm.… Read the full article

High-fidelity of the no -box count variety is getting more and more hyped as companies such as Linn have started to recognize – what I’m going to refer as – the new stylish-fi market, and their new $3,700 USD ($6,850 USD/pair) Series 3 all-in-one wireless speaker seems directly targeted at it.

The Second Annual Toronto Audiofest Gets Underway

By | October 18th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

With its abundance of high rises and freeways, Toronto has the feel of a big, bustling metropolis. It is Canada’s most populated city, North America’s fourth after Mexico City, New York, and Los Angeles. It is also the country’s business epicenter and the only Canadian city to have an MLB team and an NBA one, the latter the Toronto Raptors, the league’s 2019 championship winners.

Among Toronto’s abiding successes, an audio show hasn’t been one of them. While the city hosted the annual TAVES, established in 2011 as primarily an audio show, the event’s attempt to transform itself over the ensuing years into CES North, wherein audio content was being superseded with exhibits of robotics, smart devices, wearables, and video gaming, made many in the audio industry feel increasingly abandoned.… Read the full article

New Music Mix October 2019

By | October 18th, 2019|Categories: Innerfidelity|

I’m planning for this to be a regular ‘column’ if you will on InnerFidelity to post new music every month, or perhaps, every week if the interest is high, and I have the material for it. You’d be surprised by just how much new content comes out every week that’s actually both musically interesting and well recorded. Far from disproving the fallacy that modern music is poorly recorded and uninteresting, I think this rather proves the fact that there has always been interesting music that is well recorded, if only one knows how to dig a little.… Read the full article

Song Review: Syrinx by +Ingelrii+

If you frequent Positive-Feedback, you may have noticed my lengthy interview with Ketil Vestrum Einarsen, who was recently described by Jacob Holm-Lupo as “prog’s mad scientist.” Well, he is back with a new project called +Ingelrii+, which includes long-time collaborator Gaute Storsve on guitar, bass, and percussion. Trond Gjellum plays drums. In addition to his usual flute, wind controller, and keys, Ketil is singing.

They’ve released a track, called Syrinx, which is now available for streaming and download from Bandcamp and, eventually, Spotify.… Read the full article
