Piega C711

Very few loudspeaker companies can claim to have created a unique technology, but the Swiss manufacturer Piega owns that distinction with its coaxial ribbon driver. Since 1986 Piega has built, from scratch, the ribbon drivers found in all the company’s upper-end speakers. In fact, in 2014 Piega sold its 100,000th pair of ribbon-based speakers, with every single ribbon made in-house. That’s quite an achievement. Indeed, the company was founded on the ribbon driver; “piega” means “fold” in Italian, a reference to the pleats in the diaphragms of its first drivers.… Read the full article

Baby Huey: The Living Legend

Baby Huey: The Living Legend

When music labels search for unreleased tapes connected with memorable albums, the results can be less than scintillating: an inferior take here, a poorly-recorded demo there, perhaps some performances that should have stayed on the shelves. However, Run Out Groove’s release of Baby Huey’s The Living Legend plus a disc of extras tells a much different story, confirming why an obscure but classic-sounding soul title from 1971 was a hit, but also affirming that the vault-digging was well worth the effort.… Read the full article
