Analog Planet

  1. Take a walk through the AXPONA 2017 Marketplace with AnalogPlanet editor Michael Fremer

  2. At AXPONA 2017 Clearaudio introduced the Charisma, a new $2000 moving magnet cartridge.

  3. Day one at AXPONA 2017 has come and gone. The show was reasonably well-attended for a Friday, which usually draws retirees, the independently wealthy, vacationers and people calling into work sick.

  4. Music composed for films is by definition precisely timed and intended to mirror or at least complement the on screen action. Of course that’s not always how its accomplished, especially when the hired musicians are not trained film composers.

    Director Roger Vadim and French jazz promoter Marcel Romano, who had previously helped arrange the Miles Davis sessions for Louis Malle’s “Ascenseur pour l'échafaud” were both fans of the mercurial Thelonious Monk, whose star at the time (1958) was burning brightly.

  5. Ortofon's Chief Officer of Acoustics and Technology Leif Johannsen and Dee Hustinova, Ortofon U.S. General Manager stopped over today to show me a brand new Ortofon cartridge the design of which Leif has just completed. I can't talk about it or show it (that's why it's in his cupped hand).

  6. When Stereophile deadlines loom, AnalogPlanet content suffers. Nothing can be done. But the radio show must go on so this week's show is all Island Records and all from the storied label's early years.
