    JBL's Hear the Truth Artists

    One of my employees who knows I'm a big JBL user came to me and asked if I'd seen the JBL commercial during the Grammy Awards broadcast. I had to confess I had not watched the show. He told me Paul McCartney was featured.

    I checked the JBL site today, and there it is.

    JBL's Hear the Truth started in September with Maroon 5 and A.R. Rahman, with more "prominent artists" to come.

    I heard a commercial for JBL on KFI AM 640 today. It described how professionals use JBL speakers in the studio to get accurate sound...all while sounding like it was mixed through a phase shifter. They might want to get real professionals to record their commercials for their professional products.

    About 10 years ago I totally reconed a pair of 4311 for KFI. The engineering staff loved them. They've since moved from the Ardmore studios building after changing ownership.

    Well, they're not trying to sell to you and me. I think that's really the long and the short of it.

    I think TiDo means they want to sell millions of entry level speakers, headphones and iPod docks,
    not a limited number of Audiophile speakers and Studio Monitors ...

    It has to do with market share. We only have a few hundred million consumers and a vast majority are Walmart shoppers. Small potatoes.

    Speaking of Walmart, I just spent a day in a major U.S. city getting schooled on just how powerful Walmart is. It really is truly staggering.

    That's the explanation I received.

    The golden age of audio is happening right now.

    It's just that many people don't know it....or care.

    Possibly... there is no debate about the fact that we as a group are the odd balls... "normal" people really don't care, and as for this being the true golden age, I suppose that depends on how you define it. Certainly many manufacturers are producing their very best products of all times. There are really well designed and built turntables, digital sounds better than it ever has, electronics have continued to evolve and today we have uber simple and relatively high quality units from people like Peachtree Audio and of course crazy high end gear that is truly fantastic... and speakers? JBL has never made better speakers than they are selling right now, Revel and B+W have great speakers, and a few dozen other companies are producing speakers that exceed every parameter of a decade or two ago... if you are into high sensitivity systems there are even a few companies that cater to that market.

    I think what has changed is the popular focus... during the '60s and well into the '70s home HiFi was growing in popularity and most people with any amount of disposable income felt compelled to buy into it... since then home computing and more recently computer based and internet based gaming has replaced it along with numerous other distractions.

    Today most people are happy with a mp3 player based boom box and a decent car stereo... more than that feels like an intrusion to them... too bad for them, but it has freed up lots of fine vintage audio gear that has been made available to those of us interested in it at a really affordable price. If that wasn't the case, just as vintage muscle cars are going for a fortune, our beloved vintage JBL monitors would cost tens of thousands of dollars.
