  1. This time around I have assembled a list of audiophile quality jazz from around the world.
  2. Megalithic heaviness.
  3. Opto-logic
    It means light. Light is used to couple the digital to the analog boards instead of metal/wire so that electrical noise stays away from the analog circuitry where it can do all kinds of harm we can hear. The "A" in DAC stands for Analog which seems to go without saying but some people get stuck on the "D" making the false assumption that digital is "perfect". As perfect as free-range unicorns.
  4. Barn Update (!) 07.19.17: the stunning dCS Network Bridge has taken up permanent residence in my system. Why? Because I like it. I like it because it lets me get deeper into my music, leaving thoughts of reproduction and the like in the rear-view more so.
  5. On a recent Saturday afternoon at the Rough Trade record store in Brooklyn's colorful Williamsburg neighborhood, musician/author Damon Krukowski and New York Times music columnist Ben Sisario sat before a small crowd of music enthusiasts to discuss Krukowski's book, The New Analog: Listening and Reconnecting in a Digital World.
