    Did You Actually Buy a New Disc Recently?

    I buy older titles used on eBay and immediately rip them to FLAC. Cheaper than buying digital. Recent purchases: Donnie Iris - Back On The Streets David Lindley - El Rayo-X Meat Loaf - Bat Out Of Hell and Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell I do like buying the occasional 4K Blu-ray disc too...

    Anyone Else Buying New Vinyl?

    I have recently purchased several new vinyl releases. I like that with vinyl I will take the time to sit down and listen to whole albums while reading through liner notes and lyrics. I tend to jump around when listening to digital. My recent purchases: Billie Eilish - Happier Than Ever (ships...

    An interesting article on audio gear from wired

    Interesting article with some good, some OK and some questionable recommendations. Best advice in the entire article: "Accessories are where the vast majority of audio snake oil shows up. The worst offender? Cables. The first thing to know is that unless you're running speaker cables for...

    Fantastic piece of writing about the "Influencer phenomenon"

    Equating "social media influencers" with Elvis Presley's performing is like comparing a chimpanzee throwing their excrement to Beethoven writing his 3rd Symphony.

    Fantastic piece of writing about the "Influencer phenomenon"

    Social Media Influencer: 1. There is no such thing as Social Media - so called social media sites exist to collect and disseminate information about their users. 2. Influencers are nothing more than vacuous camwhores exemplifying everything that is wrong with society today.

    Big Tech. A serious issue that needs to be addressed.

    I'll add: 3) do not post anything online that you do not want your parents, future employer, future spouse or future children to find. Martin

    Big Tech. A serious issue that needs to be addressed.

    Forget Google, Facebook et al, everything you buy with a credit or debit card is tracked. Unless you use cash for all your purchases or prepaid credit cards purchased with cash they already know your buying habits. It’s too late. All we can do now is damage control. Also, every post on a public...

    Alpine UTE-73BT Review (Head Unit)

    I know the Bowers & Wilkins audio system in our Volvo XC90 never ceases to amaze me. Car audio has come a long way since I installed a Kraco in-dash radio, 8-Track tape deck, 20 watt power booster and Jensen 4" coax in the kick panels and 6"x9" triax speakers in custom rear quarter panels in my...

    Chord Huei Phono Preamp Review

    I liked the sound of my PS Audio GCPH until I played a 1kHz tone from a test record through it. When I clearly heard the harmonics at 2, 3, 4kHz and higher I knew it was creating sounds not contained in the recording. I sold it and bought a new phono preamp on which, when I play a 1kHz test...

    Burson Soloist 3X Performance

    I thought Burson's use of a USB-C for the DAC input was odd, one expects USB-B. I agree there should be no difference in sound quality and that the B connector is more robust than the C connector but in a stationary desktop DAC Like the Conductor 3X cable/connector durability should not be an...

    Burson Soloist 3X Performance

    I received a full refund. The Conductor 3X Reference is currently on backorder. A death in my immediate family has also put my search on hold. It may be a number of months before I get another one to Amir for testing. Martin
