Remote updates strike again. Twenty years ago, the very idea that we’d allow a corporation unfettered access to our digital entertainment products, music hardware, or our refrigerators or televisions would have seemed positively Orwellian.

We’ve been having a lot of visitors to our place following the birth of my second daughter two weeks ago, so when Harry and Sally Lee who founded and run Aurender asked if they could drop by and see us it was an added bonus because having previously only connected with Harry via email I was looking forward to meeting him and his wife in person.

T+A is a German hi-fi manufacturer I’ve heard about, on-and-off, for several years. Known for outstanding sonics, implementing high-quality components, with outstanding fit and finish, the company somehow always seemed to be flying under my radar.

I had to wonder out loud to myself (I just had a baby girl with my partner last week, so I’m talking out loud to myself a fair amount these days because of sleep deprivation) about the coincidence of the musical/mental association I had after plugging in the $1,895 USD Chord Electronics Qutest DAC and its candy-colored ju-ju bean filter and input buttons glowed sweetly at me as it powered up.

I can’t tell you how many times I have to correct “Room” back to “Roon.” Both the word-processing applications I use have Spell-Checkers built in, and both always change Roon to Room. Sigh.
