About Me

  1. This week I was zapping through the radio stations on my way home and this band was playing live from the BBC studios. The vocals could do with a bit reverb but it sounds much more "lively" than most commercial recordings, crisper, better balanced, like being in a club: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05xjkzm Why don't most commercial recordings sound as good as this? Who's to blame, the producers?
  2. Hi all, This is my first time posting here. I am a neophyte and aspiring audiophile, so forgive me for not having the most sophisticated system. I listen to my music through iTunes (I know, I know), either on my MacBook, my iPhone, or my AppleTV. I have a pair of JH5 in ear monitors, but other than that, this is the best I can afford right now. My situation is this: I download ALAC-HD files of live Phish soundboard recordings from the band's official distributor (LivePhish.com - Live Phish MP3 Downloads FLAC Downloads Live CDs). Recently, a batch of these recordings have been plagued by a sharp static every several minutes or so. The distributor is telling me that they see no sign of this on their master recordings and that it must be my playback system. They allowed me to download the files again, and this time most of the static is gone, but it has still appeared in at least one place. I brought the files into Soundbooth just to look at the waveform, and it's clear the static is there before the files have been touched by iTunes or any other playback software. My question is, does anybody have any information about what could be causing this? Could it be something with my internet connection that's corrupting the files? My concern is that, even without the static, something is preventing these files from being as high a quality as I should expect. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Jason
  3. YouTube, it's a common resource. I'm fondest of the human voice, often searching out stripped-back on-air versions, evaluating diverse uploads... The following 3, from Andrew Bird's new album, are especially wondrous : [video=youtube;EY1-xJ0hwQM] If WFUV Public Radio productions are to your liking, explore more here. And HDMI from Panasonic Blu-ray player to Marantz Cinemarium soundbar is how I listen, watch. Sure, your method might be through a computer. But, our starting reference, YouTube's 720p Yeah, only when I'm sure its exceptional will I share—here, a personal commitment.
  4. Pearl Jam fan club members today got an offer for a new streaming service by Nugs. Details: Stream over 300+ Pearl Jam shows on demand now in the new nugs.net app. Listen to full concerts, make playlists of your favorite tracks, read & post reviews, and save shows for offline playback. Sign up for a 7 day free trial and subscribe for 12.99/month or $129.99/year for unlimited access to current and archived PJ shows. Bands: Pearl Jam, The Black Crowes, Widespread Panic, Gov't Mule, Warren Haynes, Phil Lesh & Friends I emailed Nugs for more info and was pretty disappointed when they told me that "Audio is optimized for mobile streaming and encoded as HE-AAC 160kbps VBR stereo." We don't get a ton of live content from TIDAL and if you are into bands who tour a lot and record those shows (PJ records their shows in 24/96), this could be an attractive service. It's PRICEEEEEY for 160 kbps streaming though. Jeez. I think i'm gonna pass for now and check back in in a few months.

    A Desert Island Video Concert.

    I'll start with this both sonically and visually stunning classic : Talking Heads 'Stop Making Sense' (1984) [video=youtube;HFS2oz-i3Ik] (I'm pretty sure there are many audiophiles here who are videophiles too)
