Counting Crows Reissue A Three Album Limited Run of 180-Gram Vinyl

By | November 15th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , |

If you haven’t taken a deep look into the Counting Crows debut album August and Everything After now may be the time. The band has decided to rerelease a series of three of their albums on color coded 180 gram vinyl. The partnership appears to be exclusive to The Sound of Vinyl and is slated to ship on November 16 of this year.

The introspective August and Everything After isn’t the perfect album for every mood, but if melancholy and the longing for love is on your mind, then this collection of 11 tracks just might be your huckleberry.… Read the full article

Daedalus, Linear Tube Audio, LamizatOr, WyWires; All Reference – CAF 2018

By | November 15th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , |

This is a system I could listen to every day and twice on Sundays. Which is exactly what I did at Capital Audiofest. On Friday, I poked my head in for a listen, Saturday, much of the same. Sunday morning I was there first thing to gather some final impressions of the system and snap some photos when I was called away for an urgent show-going responsibility. So I finally return on for my “twice” listen on Sunday, along with some photos — and I am noticing as the show is winding down, that the Daedalus, Linear Tube Audio and LamizatOr room is still rather busy.Read the full article

Amphion does it again! – CAF 2018

By | November 12th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , |

by Eric Shook

Firmly grounded with a history in studio and pro sound, Amphion returns to home audio with a stable of speaker designs, that to my ear, offer comforting treble and mid-range that complement the Amphion philosophy of how bass should be done — natural and just right. From desktop bookshelves to floor-standing reference towers, a little bit of everything was on hand for audition.

Amphion is in the honesty business. Outfitting some of the best recording studios in the industry, their targets have been to exhibit the most detailed and reliable information possible to the best tools we have in the recording studio, the human ear.Read the full article

Fidelis AV, Rogers High Fidelity, Harbeth, and Accusound – CAF 2018

The most interesting room in the world.

Okay, maybe not the world, but the show… good possibility. Something strange was going on in Room #323 at Capital Audiofest 2018. Was it as strange or erie as Room #237 in Kubrick’s version of The Shining? No.

On Friday afternoon in the Capital Audiofest universe, there was something amiss in the system of Harbeth, Roger’s High Fidelity, Accusound assembled by Fidelis AV. There was no magic, no real bass to speak of, and the remaining upper ends were wonky at best.… Read the full article

T.H.E. Show, Capitol Studios, ATC and Legacy Audio

By | November 5th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , |

It was another audio event at the famed Capitol Studios in LA, but hanging out in studio A in the heart of Hollywood with high profile producers and audiophiles on a Friday night IS my idea of an evening well spent. This time around the big studio room was hosted by the Los Angeles hifi show “T.H.E. Show” (The Home Entertainment Show) and featured a 5 person panel of talent that included 3 producer/mixer/engineers and two loudspeakers manufacturers.

Aside from social niceties and an open bar, attendees were treated to a hour-long panel that spanned the nuances of both the production and reproduction sides of the audiophile coin.… Read the full article

KEF sold a lot of LS50s. KEF also sold a lot of LS50 wireless systems. Now the British brand is looking to jump even closer into mainstream sales figures with a smaller and significantly cheaper wireless system the clearly mimics the original inspiration of the clever coaxial-studio-montior-turned-hifi-beauty-queen.

Pure Audio Project – RMAF 2018

By | November 1st, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , |

Let’s talk about the man behind it all — Ze’ev Schlik — who is the founder of the Pure Audio Project. Ze’ev has created with the Pure Audio Project a reliable and expressive way for those who have dabbled in open baffle speakers (or always wanted to) a way to capture a legitimate hi-fi experience without all of the trial and (t)error associated with the DIY community.

On active display at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest was Pure Audio Project’s brilliant sounding pair of loudspeakers, the Trio 15 Horn 1 — as outfitted for the festival.Read the full article

Cary Audio, ProAc and Wireworld – RMAF 2018

By | October 30th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , |

by Eric Shook

It was a full weekend for Cary Audio as they were showing two systems; one introducing the new SLI-100 integrated amplifier, along with introducing the new Cary DM550 digital music streamer, which was used to participate in Saturday morning’s MQA Live Event. The second system: consisted of a Cary AiOS all-in-one system, with ProAc Tablets, and a static display of the new Cary DM600 digital music streamer.

The main system was of most interest to me as I am a former owner of a Cary SLI-80 integrated, and it is often remembered as the one that got away.Read the full article

Sonus Faber Electa Amator III & Gravis VI Sub – RMAF 2018

By | October 29th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Sonus Faber actually had two rooms rocking at RMAF this year. The bigger setup featured the new line-array XRT2.1Ks we covered at our visit to the NY World of McIntosh secured to a pair of the MC1.25KW monos. A very nice sounding system in its own right, but our attention was drawn even closer to the secondary room which housed an MA8000 integrated and MC80 transport to a pair of the new Electa Amator III bookshelf-style speakers.

The two-way speakers were sitting next to a new Gravis VI ($7k) sub due out in early December, but at the time of my visit wasn’t hooked up.… Read the full article

Devore’s New Orangutan – RMAF 2018

By | October 24th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , |

No friends, the profound John Devore does not have a new favorite pet of the great ape variety, he in fact, has a new reference loudspeaker which we got to hear at RMAF this year. The Devore Fidelity Orangutan Reference System is actually broken out into four separate cabinets, with two more mobile 10″ paper cone low-end transducers for the bass end of things – what John affectionally calls the O/Ref/B.

The the other O/Ref/A houses another 10″ paper cone woofer with a bronze phase plug with one 1″ silk dome tweeter and one off-axis .75″ silk super tweeter.… Read the full article
