Steven Stone's 2019 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest Show Report

When you take a show from a hotel that’s been hosting that show for many years and move it to another hotel, it is, for all intents and purposes, a brand-new show. That’s exactly what happened to Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in 2019. Gone was the underachieving and dowdy old Marriott, replaced by the upwardly-mobile and near-to-the-airport Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center. The new venue was shinier, and big enough to swallow up the whole show with room to spare without even a belch.… Read the full article

Stealth Audio Cables USB-T Select

By | March 26th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

2018 was a year where, between my law firm, my ailing parents and my not-for-profit activities, I was working 75-hour weeks and I had little time to write reviews. However, I never stopped checking out new components to try and further improve my system.

I’ve recently started a phased retirement, and am finally able to write reviews of the components that impressed me the most during the last 18 months. This also enables me to write about components which I have had in my system for long stretches, so for the foreseeable future my reviews will be based on long-term listening experiences.

Objectivity and the Abstract Truth

Objectivity and the Abstract Truth

Every hobby, by its very nature, runs the constant risk of losing contact with its own foundational intent or purpose.

Microsoft has an interesting TV ad campaign currently airing that features the American hip hop artist/poet Common. The message of this marketing effort, broadly pointing towards the future of artificial intelligence, is interesting less for the ideas being promoted, and more …… Read the full article

Q&A with Richard Cesari of Esprit Audio

Q&A  with Richard Cesari of Esprit Audio

What ignited your interest in the high end? Did it come from the music side or the electronics side? I heard Rhapsody in Blue for the first time when I was 11 and I believe this is where it all started. My love for music never stopped growing with the discovery of Mahler pieces, Bill Evans, or John Coltrane. What gear made up your first high-end system? It was a long time ago, and my first system was made up of a Thorens TD 166 turntable, a Luxman L3 amplifier, and self-constructed loudspeakers.… Read the full article
