Top 10 Hi-Fi News Stories: May 8, 2022

For the week ending May 8, 2022 we roundup the top 10 Hi-Fi news stories of the week from across the web.

Good Vibes

1. Dark Side

🇬🇧 If you don’t know about The Dark Side of The Moon, then Harley’s Great Recordings is a must listen. Even if you do, this is recommended. 

I relish Harley reading the lyrics of Time; my brain fills in where the music should be with a heightened sense of the story being told. 

2.  Discovery

🇺🇸 Do you get excited discovering new channels, learning, and enjoying other systems vicariously. Tune into Steve Huff Photo & HiFi as he goes into lexicon of sounds. Most def check out

3. Jazz Journal

🇨🇦 James Hale posts of the passing of Gene Santoro. “Fabulous jazz journalist and author. If you love the music, you need to read his biography of Charles Mingus.”

4. DIY

🇨🇦 Are you following Joseph Crowe’s DIY? If not, then here’s your FYI on this amazing channel. On IG @joseph_crowe_diy

6. Sound Clips

🇺🇸 Sound from a phone can create a connection to your system, I believe it and here’s proof. Myles Astor plays Too Young To Go Steady by John Coltrane, Magical!

7. Hi-Fi Bar

8. Humor Community

🇨🇦 Are you following Thomas and Stereo? I truly enjoy Thomas’ content, group of friends and even the clickbait – it’s intelligent and humorous. BRAVO Thomas!

Public “ You are with out a doubt the worst audio reviewer I have ever read.” 

Me “but you have heard of me.”

9. Casual Coverage

🇩🇪 John Darko asks Michael Lavorgna “Why do manufacturers keep big announcements for the first day of a show rather than a pre-release one week earlier?” Before the internet, coverage was made in print magazines, maybe 4 weeks later or several months – the way things have always been done is not necessary the best way. Now people are creating live coverage and as a manufacturer you want to be of that causal coverage, tweets, FB, YouTube, IGTV and posts. 

Listen on Apple Podcasts:

    Darko and Lavorgna? Tweedledumb. and Tweedledumber. Those two talent less typists are totally without merit.

    I would not suffer the agony of being trapped in a room filled with their combined egos. frAudiophiles® of the worst kind, I assure you. Foul craven, indeed.

    To paraphrase Dante, “…All reason abandon ye who enter here”, should be emblazoned in neon any where those to cretinous typists dare lay claim to “speaking” at.

    Repulsive charlatans that look everywhere to be offended save their personal Picture of Dorian Gray, i.e., the mirror.

    In contrast to those two maroons I have found the few PS Audios videos I have viewed to be quite good. Thank you for the heads up on them and it may well be that you have planted a seed of toadish interest, sire. Thank you again!
