  1. completely agree - case in point, since it's fresh on my mind, I still think that Bob Ludwig's mastered Donald Fagen Nightfly is the defacto standard bearer for sound ... it beats the pants off any hi-res, low-res or other-res reissue of this great classic. Great article!
  2. I bet they are fantastic indeed!
  3. They came out as both mono and stereo! I don’t have the mono versions, though I would wager there’s far less tape degradation on those than the stereo!
  4. PS: those waiting for the MoFi 1step (myself included)... I wouldn't hold my breath that it will actually sound "better" than any of these reissues. Simple point being, the tapes are old, used, and there's a definite degradation happening. Case in point, I compared several of the Dylan MoFi reissues to mint originals and while in some cases it's a toss, several originals sound better by way of having far less issues with sibilance and smearing. It's the same reason I prefer Chad Kassem's Live at the Village Vanguard 45 reissue from the early 2000s to the 1step MoFi.

    Article: Why Can't Music Artists Do This?

    I think it was during last year’s talk at RMAF that I posited the very same question. When I saw this, I immediately thought of Nolan and his discussions around color calibration, and how he insists that you really need to pay attention to your home setup so you can best enjoy his films. We simply have nothing on the audio / music / HiFi side of the business. Sorry, Neil Young is not a trendsetter anymore even as I appreciate his enthusiasm.
  6. Amazing piece of writing and work! 😊

    Article: Kii THREE Loudspeaker Review

    nice review Mitch! I think that high-end audio is facing an ever increasing dilemma... move forward with technology or fall way, way behind... the issue we have is driven by fundamentals of our fractured industry where on one end we have something like Kii, and on the other hand, royal Japanese paper cone 6" full-range speakers; you can't possibly sell these side by side with a straight face. Thus, what's a manufacturer to do: design for the old school guard and lose marketing ability to the new generation, or design for the new generation and leave the old guard behind.
  8. great write-up Kirk! for what it's worth, I love my HomePod... it's in the kitchen doing due diligence in keeping me cooking a mean meal......... 😂

    Article: Munich High End 2018

    Great recap Chris... agree that Munich is “the” show today and for the foreseeable future. Having said that, I think it’s increasingly becoming a b2b show and certainly compared to my last visit 4 years ago, consumer attendance has fallen, especially families. There is significant opportunity left for innovation in the show space... I’ll submit a show report soon... TONS of pics.

    Article: Introducing the Wilson Audio TuneTot

    Thanks Matt - speakers, due to their nature, are very personable choices - not everyone will like everyone else's choices. Fortunately, there ought to be a speaker for everyone in today's market place. As to the article being bland advertising... it's a product announcement labeled "Introducing the Wilson Audio TuneTot". Not sure it would have made sense to talk about 5 other speaker lines in the context of this introductory write up about a very specific speaker.

    Curious what you picked up on... also, the living room really isn't messy per se. I just have a ton of records laying around. You want messy, look at Atkinson, Fremer et all. 🤣
