    I never sailed saltwater, but I did my share on Lake Michigan. We once put out in a violent storm in a twenty-seven foot Seabird yawl. The power of the lake was such that we might as well have been...

    Zimmer refers to himself as old school, so I should have guessed he would wrap it up with the Mariner's Hymn. For those like myself who can never remember the lyrics, here they are. I expect you know...

    Solo Karaoke

    In this BBC feature about the rise of solo culture in Japan, solo karaoke is covered. While generally a product of getting drunk together, the solo adherents make a good case for preferring to go it...

    The Third Man

    A soundtrack consisting of solo performances on a single instrument, and on one of the all-time classic films. Anton Karas played his own compositions on a zither and you know the theme song even if...

    Baden Powell was an extraordinarily gifted musician. I had not heard this 1966 collaboration before. I first list the entire album, then the single song that got my attention first. It begins at...

    Better than baby steps already, I think.

    Well, the application for the product in the BBC report is for people who CAN'T hear the HT - or any other setup. While it admittedly does not yet give a comparable experience (even the test subjects...

    Fashion that lets you feel music

    Interesting development. I listened to a headphone a few years ago that had haptic sensors (transducers) for low bass. It did work. I can't help but think that this application will not be strictly...

    Think JBL Century, but with a big whizzer cone. It is running full range and whizzer and all, it peters out pretty well by then. Above 9700 it is not seriously competing with the tweeter. With a...

    Single Driver Done Right

    “First, I’d like to say I totally understand what Clark is getting at. A very simple “full range” speaker powered by a very simple system can be very magical and give you a clear window into the...

    My memory just kicked out a couple of more bytes. Were there not a lot more 4350s than the 4355s? That might explain the 250 pair number for the 4355. I also recall the 100 pair number for 4345s...
