My Journey Into Audio – Pandora Pang

By | July 12th, 2019|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , |

Original version published Feb 20, 2015. Revised after stumbling onto Positive Feedback’s Carol Clark’s recent post, My Journey into Audio

Pandora, Carol Clark (image by David Clark, Positive Feedback)

It looked like Carol recently had a similar experience as I did in 2015 that “left [her] stewing.” We have been friends with Dave and Carol for years with shared interests outside of audio: wine tasting, child-brain education, and of late, art. I adore Dave’s smarts, his dry humor with quick wit, and his meticulous attention to subjects he is interested in, while Carol’s quiet and calm intellect captivates me.… Read the full article

Good Things do Come in Small Packages

Review By Rufus Smith

Dr. David W. Robinson, Editor-in-Chief

Audiophiles as Artists – Chris Morris

By | July 5th, 2019|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , |

Twenty questions with an audiophile who is also an artist. For this premiere, we feature Chris Morris.

What’s your background?

I grew up on a farm in eastern Colorado. No town or major population to speak of, lots of time to myself and explore the world around me. It was a very typical small community, rural type of childhood. But I ended up traveling around the country a bit with my mother for her work when I was younger so I got exposed to more than just my little isolated country world.… Read the full article

Speakers for those who love music.

Review By Matthew Clott

With this article, Positive Feedback continues its content-sharing relationship with Enjoy the Music. Mathew Clott shares his thoughts about the Vanatoo Loudspeakers. Read, and learn….

Dr. David W. Robinson, Editor-in-Chief

I have become increasingly impressed with the quality of truly affordable audio gear. The newly released Vanatoo Transparent One Encore qualifies under both the impressed, and affordable category. There is a lot of technology and many features crammed into a rather petite bookshelf speaker, with a single cable running to the passive speaker.… Read the full article

Getting closer to the music etched into your LP’s grooves.

Review By Tom Lyle

With this article, Positive Feedback begins its content-sharing relationship with Enjoy the Music. Tom Lyle, who used to write for PF in former years, shares his thoughts about the Etsuro Urushi cartridge. Read, and learn….

Dr. David W. Robinson, Editor-in-Chief

Etsuro Urushi Bordeaux Moving Coil Phono Cartridge Review

It was about a year ago that I reviewed the cartridge that’s one step lower in Etsuro Urushi’s line, their Cobalt Blue. In the review I said that the Cobalt Blue is “a super-transparent window into the recording that was etched into an LP’s surface,” praising this cartridge to the point where one might be led to believe that there is no better cartridge on the market.… Read the full article
