My wife jokes that I once told her that if I ever went on a cruise that she should shoot me — really. And I guess thinking I knew what happens on a traditional cruise, I might still believe that […]

Happy New Year!

The hucksters wasted no time in rolling out the BS machine over at the HI END Sound & Surround Group on FB. I admit to spending too much time cruising through various audio groups, looking at both left and right […]

My wife would like to take credit for it (and she’s probably right because she does pay the credit card bills), but I some weeks ago ordered the 50th anniversary boxed set of the Beatles “White Album” as a Christmas […]

A Weekend In London With YARRA 3DX!

What could be better than a quick trip to London? Last weekend, Mona and I made a quick trip to the British capitol to demonstrate the YARRA 3DX 3D audio sound bar to potential partners AND celebrate my wife’s birthday […]

In the middle of June, I posted a blog titled the HD-Audio Challenge. Readers were encouraged to download six pairs of music tracks, do some careful listening to determine which was the original 96/24 master, and which was a downconversion […]

The Waldrep summer 2018 vacation is over. Mona, Charlie, and I returned to Southern California early last week after driving 5200 miles around the western U.S. — we visited Carmel, sped around Lake Tahoe in a 23 foot skiboat, climbed […]

Audiophile Societies – A True Story

A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article about an event that reported on some of the nonsense demos that happen at trade shows (you can visit the article by clicking here). I deliberately avoided naming the salesperson who demonstrated the “benefits” of expensive — very expensive — power cords and the name of his company out of respect for the hosts. His demo produced audible/measurable increases in the amplitude of identical music selections. A result that is impossible according to the laws of physics.… Read the full article

I’m thrilled that so many audio enthusiasts have expressed an interest in taking the High-Resolution Challenge. At last count, I’ve supplied the FTP credentials to over 300 interested readers. And I’ve started receiving responses. I’m not going to reveal the correct answers or otherwise discuss the results but I thought I would talk about a specific case in some detail because this person managed to get all 6 correct! Brodie was the first person to identify the high-resolution files in every case.… Read the full article

Munich High End 2018 – Looking Back

It’s been about 10 days since I returned from Munich and my first High End Show. I had to race back to Los Angeles to give final exams to my anxious students, grade papers, calculate grades, and attend graduation ceremonies. It was a whirlwind trip but got to spend some time with our youngest son Michael (who’s been living in Berlin and works for a famous Icelandic/Danish artist named Olafur Eliasson). Thankfully, my wife Mona got to spend a couple of extra days in Austria before returning to SoCal.… Read the full article

Munich 2018? Possible Road Trip

I heard from a good friend — a member of the audiophile community and vendor of high-end music servers — who suggested that I bring a couple of cases of the book Music and Audio: A User Guide to Better Sound to Munich for the high end audio show happening in 10 days. I’m seriously considering making the mad dash to Germany between the end of my semester and the start of final exams. Todd Garfinkle or MA Records (who I’ve know since our days in the music department in Northridge, CA) has a booth at the show and told me that he would share a small corner of it.… Read the full article
