  12. For many years I had a moratorium on Miles Davis’ album Kind Of Blue [Sony Legacy B001KL3GZO] though I did have what is perhaps the latest version on CD. Why? Because, like Led Zeppelin’s song "Stairway To Heaven", there are only a certain number of times you can hear certain music and eventually become overly exposed to it. Such exposure means you become desensitized to its true greatness. So with about five years of banning Kind Of Blue I decided to give it a whirl on the CD player. Wow! My jaw dropped as this is truly not just an amazing recording, it is amazing music! The sense of space, Mile’s expertise as a true master of the trumpet… Read More View the full article

  17. Last year's inaugural CanJam NYC 2017 show was a huge hit, and this year seemed poised to be just as successful with several new and intriguing personal audio products on the horizon. I think the crew over at Head-Fi somehow managed to surpass the high bar they set for themselves last year, planning an even bigger and better show this year. CanJam NYC 2018 was absolutely jam packed on Saturday afternoon, and Sunday was pretty busy this year too, thanks in part to the show not being double-booked with the Super Bowl as it was in 2017. From old-school stalwarts like Sennheiser to exciting upstarts like Meze and Periodic Audio, there were waves being made across the industry at any and every price point. We've got a ton to cover, so without further ado, let's get to the highlights of the show. Read More View the full article

  24. Sound-wise (finally Steven gets to the point!) they are one of the most welcome-sounding speakers this side of the Audio Note AN-J/SPx with pure silver wire and silver voice coil/crossover parts hand wound by Vestal... that are easily 8x the price of the ELAC F5. No matter what high-end amp, or the internal amplifier within the Pioneer Elite plasma TV to which they are hooked up to now, the sound is impressive. Even the paltry 25 wpc Pioneer Elite plasma TV amp can get these speakers very loud, yet they still sound very clean too. Bass is impressively deep during EDM and pop music like the guest teens listened to. They were awestruck with how great they sounded! Read More View the full article
