Top 10 Hi-Fi News Stories: April 3, 2022

For the week ending April 3, 2022 we roundup the top 10 Hi-Fi news stories of the week from across the web.

Good Vibes

1. T.H.E. TALK

🇺🇸 eCoustics founder Brian Mitchell talks with T.H.E. Show SVP Emiko Carlin on T.H.E. Talk about T.H.E. Headphonium™ June 10-12, 2022 in Long Beach, CA and the value of content creation and creators. Replay on YouTube, FB or LinkedIn. Ps; 🙏🏽 for the shoutout.

2. Montreal Audio Fest

🇨🇦 The Montreal Audio Fest happened last weekend with a lot of content creation; the PS Audio FR-30 loudspeakers got attention. I’ve been living vicariously through Thomas and Jay’s stories – thanks guys!

3. Watts You Need

🇩🇪 John Darko interviews 6moons writer Srajan Ebaen on Darko.Audio podcast. Of interest; a compelling discussion about amplifier musicality vs resolution. Listen to broaden your lexicon of sounds on audio.

4. Do Measurements Matter?

🇨🇦 Thomas & Stereo interviews 🇬🇧 Harley Lovegrove, Pearl Acoustics inventor & classical recording engineer. They discuss if a speaker can be good even if it’s not flat? Harley knows vibration! Thomas is releasing a speaker and amp into the consumer market. This ties in so well with No.5 news story:

5. Why Measure?

🇩🇪 🚀 Scientist Jesco Lohan of Acoustics Insider interviews physicist Klaus Heinz of HEDD audio on why we can’t make a prediction about how we will enjoy a speakers performance based solely on their measurements — a must 🎧.

6. Pro Audio / DSD

🇺🇸 Emiko @ThatHiFiGirl interviews Pro Audio Engineer Cookie Marenco of Blue Coast Records; replay this on YouTube at @emikomusic. Talking about Extended Sound Environment (ESS) & direct stream digital (DSD), the fact that the cable debate does not exist, and gender stereotypes in audio. Ask me how DSD differs from PCM.

7. Ojas System

🇺🇸 Herb Reichert of Stereophile published OJAS Devon Turnbull’s Japanese influenced system. I want a Fostex Super Woofer, but Julie might kill me! I keenly appreciate the description of the bass this speaker produces. Bigger does not equal louder – FYI.

8. Flat Speakers

🇺🇸 Is Danny Richie smoking? 🤷🏻 but I appreciate his technical conversations on measurements and component quality even if it gets “sticky”.  Some of the most important measurements in dynamics is time, phase and coherence; don’t simply look in the frequency domain.

9. Audiopax

🇧🇷 Lucas Mazer talks about his Audiopax Mandolin Ceramik high end loudspeakers on YouTube at BLauPunKT.

10. Fuses

🇺🇸 HiFi Turtle 🐢 shares Listen2Listen’s Instagram meme on audiophile fuses! ROFL I love it. Stories are where it’s at on IG.
