A few weeks ago I received an unassuming enough looking email from Cameron Black of the PR firm Noyd Communications, asking me if I would like to experience a unique VIP on-stage experience for the Aerosmith: Deuces Are Wild concert at the MGM Park hotel’s Park Theater in Las Vegas. Wait what? Aerosmith? On-stage seats? I fuckin’ love Aerosmith!

In fact my love affair with Aerosmith goes back to my mid teens when I practically wore a hole in Live!Read the full article

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

CHICAGO (PTA) — If it is true that we were all created in God’s image, some of us inherited more godlike ability than others. In terms of the ability to work miracles in the arena of audio engineering, many would argue that people like Rupert Neve were blessed well beyond that which mere mortals are typically endowed.

These Swiss watch-inspired headphones could last you a lifetime

By | April 16th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Even if you take the utmost care with your headphones, it's unlikely that they'll last longer than a few years; technology moves on, parts degrade, and what was fashionable a few years ago, becomes wildly uncool with alarming rapidity. 

That's something Swiss-British design company Luzli hope to change with the Roller MK02 headphones. Designed to "last a lifetime", these luxury Swiss-watch inspired cans are now available to buy for an eye-watering $4,000 / £3,840 (around AU$5,600).

Audeara A-01 wireless NC headphones REVIEW

By | April 15th, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

Each to their own

Audeara’s app gives you a hearing test, then programs the A-01 headphones to compensate for your personal profile. Is it a miracle experience?

The Audeara website quotes a customer as saying “I’ve just spent the whole day, relistening to my entire music library!” But why take the word of someone who only has 20-30 albums? We decided to have a listen ourselves, intrigued by Audeara’s Kickstarted idea of corrective audio.
These are noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones which make use of an app-based hearing test.… Read the full article

Woo Audio WA11 Topaz Headphone Amp-DAC, WA33 Headphone Amp, and Mysphere 3.1 Headphones

By | April 13th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

I’m a little old to be a fan (but I am), and some say singer-songwriter Billie Eilish is a little young (just turned 17) to be as famous and successful as she is. But hey, what’s-his-name from the Jackson Five was only five years old when he was that famous . . .

It doesn’t matter. If you could have heard Eilish singing “Bad Guy” and “Bury a Friend,” from her album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?Read the full article

Janszen Lotus Electrostatic Headphones

By | April 13th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

On my way to AXPONA’s Master Class Theater to catch Rob Robinson’s seminar on current-mode phono preamplifiers, I was buttonholed by David Janszen. The Janszen name is synonymous with electrostatic drive-units—the midrange unit in the legendary Wilson WAMM was based on Janszen technology—and at AXPONA David was demonstrating prototype electrostatic headphones, the Lotus. The 1150V polarizing voltage for the electrostatic diaphragm is supplied by a battery and voltage multipliers—David says that the battery will last for a week and an half before needing to be recharged.… Read the full article

Yon Olde Editor (portrait by John Robinson)

A prologue:  of memories, music, and dreams…

To start:  An extended and quite famous passage from Proust.

Just read it, it will do you good.

Many years had elapsed during which nothing of Combray, save what was comprised in the theatre and the drama of my going to bed there, had any existence for me, when one day in winter, on my return home, my mother, seeing that I was cold, offered me some tea, a thing I did not ordinarily take.Read the full article
