  14. For more than 90 years, Shure has been committed to manufacturing and delivering products of the highest quality, reliability, and value. This commitment requires consistency in materials, processes, and testing, as well the capacity to react to fluctuations in demand. In recent years, the ability to maintain our exacting standards in the Phonograph Cartridge product category has been challenged, resulting in cost and delivery impacts that are inconsistent with the Shure brand promise.

  16. UPDATE I: As of 5/3 at 12PM local time there are conversations in progress about the possibility of it being saved by the LA/OC Audio Society. Update II: As of 5/3 at 2PM local time on The Los Angeles and Orange County Audio Society Facebook page it says, "Bulletin for Members and Friends Regarding LAAS. There are NO negotiations between the Society and LA Audio Show in progress or contemplated to save 2018. The post saying this on the LA Audio Show website is false. We recommend you submit for any refund you may be owed by them ASAP. The Society" It is with sadness and regrets that I announce the cancellation of the 2018 LA Audio Show — Orange County. Refunds will start to be issued immediately to those exhibitors who have already paid deposits and/or full remittances for space and other services. These refunds will be in the form of checks and will arrive by USPS Mail to the address provided on contracts. Attendee tickets will be refunded through the system they were purchased.

  17. Markaudio-SOTA's Cesti MBs are fabulous speakers which provide at least as much musical enjoyment as much more expensive speakers. In my dedicated listening room I can use what is for most folks domestically unacceptable equipment. Such massive speakers can provide a greater scale, ultimate volume levels and bass extension than the Cesti MBs but as to which is more musically rewarding as opposed to impressive is another question. Musically the Cesti MBs have it nailed and they are domestically desirable as well. Read More View the full article
  18. As you might expect from a high end single crystal set of speaker cables with the level of fit and finish as the Skogrand Beethoven's these cables are nearly perfect for a set of copper cables. The only real place where they are lacking is in the highest octaves, they don't quite let the top end of the acoustic spectrum breathe the way a set of high end silver cables would .I do overall like the sound signature of the cables, but for better overall system synergy in my system I might replace a critical path like the RCAs with a set of silver cables to let the high end breathe just a little more.

  22. There was the new venue. The original revival of this show, in March 2013, had been held in the O'Hare Doubletree By Hilton in Rosemont, and marked the first time in 14 years that the Windy City had played host to a high-end audio show. That last previous show, Hi-Fi '99, had been held at the Palmer House downtown, and yes, I was there to cover it. While the Doubletree was a nice place, and easily accessible from O'Hare, it really had kind of a smallish feel to it... what can I say? By the following year, AXPONA had reorganized and moved to the Westin O'Hare, not even a mile further north on N. River Road from the Doubletree. Nice digs, nice people, and this resuscitated show remained there as it grew and blossomed over four years, through 2017. Read More View the full article

  26. The audiophile hobby will always have a healthy contingent of purists – those who eschew things like DSP (digital signal processing) and EQ for a pure, unmolested signal. But as the industry continues to evolve, the technological possibilities keep getting more compelling. Once a dirty word to audiophiles, Bluetooth has made major strides in recent times with aptX and LDAC, which allow for lossless and high-res wireless transmission. 3D DSP technologies like the Smyth Realizer A16 and now the new Audeze Mobius do an incredible job of fooling our ears, arguably bringing us closer to the original recording with speaker-like sound in our headphones. And these are just the tip of the iceberg. Read More View the full article
