A beautiful autumn day in Los Angeles!

By | November 16th, 2013|Categories: Austin Blog|

(click to enlarge!)

I took this picture of L.A. a couple of weeks ago from the Hollywood Bowl Overlook up on Mulholland Drive. It was an exceptionally clear day. For those unfamiliar with the city, I’ll give you a guided tour; you’ll definitely have to enlarge the photo by clicking on it, though.

The Hollywood Bowl is in the right foreground, the 101 Freeway is on the left (oddly, traffic seems to be moving!), The Capitol Records building is just left of center, the stretch of buildings just beyond the trees is Hollywood Blvd./Sunset Blvd., and the line of buildings towards the horizon is Wilshire Blvd.… Read the full article

It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.

By | September 3rd, 2013|Categories: Austin Blog|

From left to right: two Crimson 640E-III amplifiers, a Crimson 710 preamplifier and a LINN LP-12 turntable. (Click image to enlarge!)

We don’t generally make a big deal about the size of Crimson Electronics Amps and Preamps. We’d be importing them whether they were the size of a matchbox or an icebox because they deliver music better than any other high-end electronics, size notwithstanding.

But I think this picture really illustrates how the Crimsons can be unobtrusively tucked into a room while still delivering ultra-clean high-end remote-controllable sound at 175 watts per channel.… Read the full article

Crimson Loudspeaker Cable Tops Ten-Brand Cable Shootout!

By | June 3rd, 2013|Categories: Austin Blog|

“…when we did the evaluation a second time, the results were identical!”

On Saturday, March 17, 2012, the San Antonio, Texas-based River City Audio Society embarked on the arduous task of a ten-brand loudspeaker cable shootout. Here’s the post from RCAS’ John Shurman about the shootout:

Hello RCAS! The meeting this past Saturday was one of the best. Superb. When I first discussed this concept with Bob, I expressed my concern that this wild idea could end up being a giant logistical, tabulation and formatting nightmare.… Read the full article
