Klipsch – The Three – Review

Read Here

” My family used Spotify exclusively with The Three (other than my testing). It worked fantastic and streamed without a single issue. Products that have connectivity issues or need to be fiddled with after a period of nonuse, are nonstarters in my house. If I have to tell my family, “wait a second while I reconfigure something on your phone real quick,” after having set it up previously, my family won’t use the product. I know, first world problems, but problems nonetheless. With The Three and Spotify Connect, not only could my family stream to the unit near the kitchen table, they could tap the device name within the Spotify app to select a different Klipsch speaker. It’s really that easy and it worked every time. ”

Making Hi-Res Audio Wireless

Read Here

“The process is simple and quick. It involves declaring the product to be tested and then sending it to one of the testing houses where engineers run wireless performance tests to ensure the product meets WiSA quality and transmission requirements. Components that pass receive a certificate and permission to use the WiSA logo under the terms in our agreement.”

Hofa Diffusors

READ HERE

Because the paintings covered a very large portion of the walls I ordered 8 Hofa Diffusors rightaway with the idea of combining them into a 2 meter by 1 meter area above the audio system. I should also note that the sound of the Divas, perhaps due to their dipole nature, even without any treatment, is very good. At the listening position there is no peakyness in the bass, nor any evidence of room modes. However, when standing in the room talking, especially when near the system, with the bare walls there is a peak in the midrange where the sound lingers on just too long and voices sound somewhat hollow. Some would refer to this as echo, but it is actually more like reverb. It is this hollowness that I aimed to address with these panels and it was my hope that the overall performance of sound via the Divas might also improve in the process.”

On Collecting Audio Gear and Music

Read Here

“Many of the older audiophiles I know still have large collections of gear and the software to play on that gear, with multiple copies of audiophile faves such as Dark Side of the Moon or Belafonte at Carnegie Hall. But how many is enough compared to too much? That is a tricky question – sometimes it comes down to the conditions of storage – If you still have room to keep everything properly (not resting on their sides underneath 100 LPS stacked on top of them) you are a collector, not a hoarder, I suppose.”

DCS VIVALDI VERSION 2.0 REVIEW

Read Here

” Much of the emphasis of these Version 2.0 upgrades is targeted at improving the ability of users to employ high-resolution sources. I personally continue to like playing CDs, but the industry is clearly moving with the introduction of servers. So when Quick proposed setting me up with a router and a NAS, I was eager to give it a go, especially because I have a cache of private recordings bestowed upon me by recording engineer Peter McGrath that I always enjoy playing.”
