Professor Edgar Choueiri (Eames chair) and Buddy Gardineer setting me up with BACCH 3D

"Getting measured for head-tracking for use with BACCH 3D." is the answer to Monday's 'Guess What I'm Doing' .gif quiz (as some astute readers correctly surmised). The real point is that I've been listening to BACCH 3D in-barn for a few days and I have a few important things to tell you.

In their review of the Bluesound Pulse 2 and Pulse Flex, Wired concludes with their Rating:
6/10—Strong audio and design, but the speakers are remarkably challenging to get going.

Let's tease with some quotes. First from CES 2015, the first time I encountered Bacch 3D:

"One the biggest and most mind-boggling moments of CES 2015 was delivered by Professor (of applied physics) Edgar Choueiri of Princeton University."

"Color me more than wowed and let me state the more-than-obvious—this is ground-breaking technology that I hope we'll see trickle down into more affordable products."

There is something in human nature that enjoys a bit of voyeurism, compels ordinary men and women to look into their neighbors’ windows while walking down the street at night, inventing stories of the things that live and happen inside.

Barn Update (!) 07.19.17: the stunning dCS Network Bridge has taken up permanent residence in my system. Why? Because I like it. I like it because it lets me get deeper into my music, leaving thoughts of reproduction and the like in the rear-view more so.

It's that time again. Lovely Recordings has become an indispensable aspect of the AudioStream genome and I want (need?) to keep it going: Sharing music being one of the loveliest things we can do in this fine hobby.

Is there such a thing as the perfect song? For each of us, the answer is a resounding "Yes". Is that song, or are those songs, the same amongst us? The answer is a resounding "Probably not." Feel free to substitue darn-near-anything for "song" and the same holds true—painting, pizza, spouse, DAC, etc.—non-ubiquity. How do we survive?

Ceci n'est pas AudioStream

A point of clarity: some people have complained that I am being, "I" being me/Michael, _____ (fill in with your variant of mean) in my responses to some comments: "Gee, all I said was your post was [or you were] _____ ( pick one or add your own—lame, crap, shit, nothing more than an ad, shilling, idiotic, dumb, stupid, etc.) Why so defensive?" I'll tell you why.

After a near-near nearly non-fatal incident caught in the nick of time, Audiophile Dudes are back! You may notice a slight change in the background music which you may or may not recognize as The Eagles "Hotel California". In any event, try to image it is. Feel free to cue it up and play along. Enjoy!
