ZMF Auteur Review

By | May 31st, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , |

The definition of Auteur according to dictionary.com is:

“a filmmaker whose personal influence and artistic control over a movie are so great that the filmmaker is regarded as the author of the movie.”

And on Auteur Theory from Brittanica.com:

“The auteur theory, which was derived largely from Astruc’s elucidation of the concept of caméra-stylo (“camera-pen”), holds that the director, who oversees all audio and visual elements of the motion picture, is more to be considered the “author” of the movie than is the writer of the screenplay.Read the full article

ZMF and Abyss Get Frisky With Two New Headphones – RMAF 2017

The original Abyss headphone by JPS Labs ($4.5k) has been a bookend of the high-end headphone consortium for a few years now. Priced at the top of the planar magnetic game, the single headphone from the New York-based company was a bit unwieldy if not still an interesting prospect for those in the $4k+ market. At RMAF the company unveiled a new, more compact offering for a slight discount in cost. The Diana will debut for $3k and cuts the weight down to 33o grams but still retains some high end specs with a sensitivity of 91dB, so don’t expect a fully-endorsed portable product from JPS just yet.… Read the full article
