  1. The Ten Year War is a new Black Sabbath Limited Edition Vinyl Box Set containing the band's first 8 albums. And more. . .
  2. After a near-near nearly non-fatal incident caught in the nick of time, Audiophile Dudes are back! You may notice a slight change in the background music which you may or may not recognize as The Eagles "Hotel California". In any event, try to image it is. Feel free to cue it up and play along. Enjoy!
  3. It’s 1996, well before iPods, smartphones and easy Internet access. My employer is sending me from New York City to Sydney, Australia for a 1-year work assignment. My wife and two little kids are coming too. We can bring whatever fits into allowable checked luggage and carry-ons, plus a small “barrel” of other personal items (mostly toys & clothes) that will follow by cargo ship a few months later. We’ll be living in a very small apartment, so most of our possessions will be staying behind (or being sold at garage sale, in the case of my vinyl collection) including everything from our pets to our musical instruments, the hi-fi system and most of my recorded music library. We have two months to get organized. I designate a small cardboard box for CDs to bring along. The ones I choose to fit in that box will have to do me for a year, and I’ll be playing them on a boom-box to be purchased once we arrive. Not the happiest thought for an audiophile, but to be honest there are more pressing things to think about.
  4. I searched high and low for the album of music from the films of Jacques Tati that had the most music from his films. This search took me to France, of course it did, and to Tati Sonorama ! which is 39 tracks and 01:19:25 of bubbles.
  5. Just Don't Call Me Late To Dinner
    To call the Bluesound PULSE Soundbar a soundbar is like calling the iPhone a phone. What the Bluesound PULSE Soundbar really is, is an all-in-one music and movie sound system (well, you can add a sub and multiroom stuff with other Bluesound devices). Why review a soundbar? Didn't I just say it doesn't make sense to call it a soundbar?
