The 2014 Jazz Awards (and mine)

The Jazz Journalists’ Association announced its 2014 awards this week. I don’t think I’ve disagreed with so many of its picks. In most cases, I’d simply rank others higher than the JJA balloteers; in some cases, though, I part from their judgment pretty ... [Published Stereophile - 23 hours ago]

Roger Waters in 5.1

On Saturday, April 12, John Atkinson and I fought our way through toll plazas, endless New Jersey traffic (is there any other kind?) and one really annoying traffic jam (but hey, it was only one!) to go to a listening session in McAlpin Hall in the Woolworth ...

I Love The Dead

It’s a very scary and weird commentary on the state of the music business, that posthumous albums have now become a booming category. Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix and now Johnny Cash have all lived on and continued to release unheard music many years after ... [Published Stereophile - Apr 12 2014]

The Women of Warpaint

In the tornado of music and gear better known as, let’s say, audiophilisma, there are a lot of guilty pleasures. In fact you could argue that the entire enthusiasm, for (choose your poison) knobs needing a twist, tiny lights beckoning, sexy brushed metal ... [Published Stereophile - Apr 12 2014]

The Divine Miss King

The vinyl reissue wave gets smarter by the day. Now, many of the titles that were once licensed and reissued on 180 and 200 gram vinyl by Classic Records, and which have now become highly valuable and silly expensive on eBay, Discogs and other websites, ... [Published Stereophile - Apr 12 2014]

Jeff Rowland Design Group Model 7/II power amplifier

Very few products exude opulence as do the Rowland amplifiers: the massive chassis, the gold finish, those sculpted handles on the front plate. For some strange reason the amp reminds me of Brutus Beefcake, the golden boy of professional wrestling, upon ... [Published Stereophile - Apr 11 2014]

Kyocera DA-910 CD player

Those of our readers who are still anti-CD are going to be offended by what I am about to say. Partly because they do not want it to be true, but mainly because it is. I shall utter the heresy anyway: the Compact Disc is, right now, doing more for the ... [Published Stereophile - Apr 11 2014]

Quotes

At the very start of this issue, Steve Guttenberg declares "Here's what I've learned in my 35 years in the High End, first as a hi-fi salesman and then as a full-time reviewer and blogger: No hi-fi, no matter how expensive or exalted, will ever deliver the holy grail."
Holt's First Law of Recording states: "The better the performance, the worse the recordingand vice versa." It's true; really fine recordings of superb musical performances are so rare that the discovery of one such gem is cause for rejoicing...
