The Halcyon Days of the 50s were NOT!

By | January 27th, 2018|Categories: Real HD-Audio|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

My wife, Charlie (the family border collie), and I left the mountains of Colorado a week ago and have returned to the warmth and comfort of Southern California. It was great to spend some time with family and friends. And I love to ski. But it was time for the vacation to end — time to come back home.

The new semester at the university has begun, the < emMusic and Audio books are expected to arrive next week, and preparations are being made to get them packed and shipped to purchasers as quickly as possible.… Read the full article

MQA: Avoiding Confrontation

MQA continues to spin their thread of sonic improvements through “origami” and removing “time smear” with high-end equipment manufacturers, audiophile reviewers, and streaming services. Among professional audio engineers and equipment designers, the jury is still out on the merits of MQA. I’ve made my position pretty clear over the past couple of years — they have developed solution to a non problem. There is no need to enhance fidelity beyond high-resolution PCM, FLAC encodes are DRM free and open to everyone and deliver better compression, and virtually all tracks consumed on disc or via streams aren’t high-resolution to start with and therefore can’t possibly benefit from MQA.… Read the full article

YARRA 3DX Campaign Launches Tomorrow

By | September 12th, 2017|Categories: Real HD-Audio|Tags: , , , |

What can I say? I have no excuses for the past few months of blog silence. During the intervening months, I have completed the Music and Audio: A Guide to Better Sound, which is welcome news. It’s over 700 pages long and has over 200 illustrations. The replicated Blu-ray demo discs have arrived back from the replicator and have been inserted into the protective sleeves that will attached to the inside back cover of the book. I’m expected to receive the finished books from the printer in about two weeks.… Read the full article

Impressive Technology at AXPONA & Binaural Sound Part 1

By | May 12th, 2017|Categories: Real HD-Audio|Tags: , , , , , , , |

It was certainly nice to see returning attendees and meet new faces at the recent AXPONA audio show in Chicago a few weeks ago. As I said in my previous post, it will probably be the last time I assemble a high-resolution, surround demo with my partners Oppo, Benchmark, Emotiva, DH Labs, and JVC. It’s tremendously expensive (and getting more expensive every year), takes a lot of planning, sweat, and time to pull together and for what? I do enjoy sharing my recordings and talking about high-resolution music during the extended sessions in the Lakeshore B ballroom, but I would probably sell more discs if I simply manned the table in front of the room.… Read the full article

Bars of Exception

by Dick Tan

 

Klipsch's  RSB soundbars share similar aesthetics.  The entry level RSB-6 is obviously smaller with a different looking sub.  The RSB11  and 14 looks identical but have different performance features

Klipsch recently announced the release of their latest range of wireless soundbars in Malaysia, the RSB Series which comprises the entry level RSB-6, the mid priced RSS-11 and the flagship model RSB-14.

 

Designed for movie and music lovers who appreciate what a good audio system can do but abhor the messy wirings that usually accompanies multi component systems the RSB Series Soundbars offer the simplicity of only just two components (the Soundbar itself and the subwoofer)  but packed with high performance separate component electronics.… Read the full article
