Yes, I freely admit to loving Christmas music. Come Thanksgiving it's pretty much all I play until after New Year's Day. To sustain myself that long, I've had to collect a wide variety beyond the usual fare that gets played on the radio. For this list I've omitted the chestnuts everyone knows; no Vince Guaraldi "A Charlie Brown Christmas", no Nat King Cole or Bing Crosby, although I love all that stuff too. I have about 2500 Christmas tracks, mostly ripped from CDs, and I could easily include many of them here. But these are the some of the ones I turn to first when the season comes.

I've been rather selective about the views shown of the barn because, well, it was filled with stuff (i.e. unseemly). Since that's no longer the case, I'm happy to share this panoramic view (there's still work to be done but isn't that always the case?).

Stephen Mejias, Jana Dagdagan and I made the trip to Princeton, NJ to the homes of the 3D Audio and Applied Acoustics (3D3A) Laboratory at Princeton University and Professor Choueiri where we listened to all things 3D audio. Following are 3 videos taken from one long video of the Professor explaining what he does in the lab and how that applies to our homes (and more).

I have long read and enjoyed the Lovely Recordings postings on AudioStream. I have found it to be a great resource when I am looking for new or different music to try out, and have found many gems that I have added to my preferred list of artists and recordings.

Why is this news? Two reasons—there's a ton of great music in their vaults, and ECM's focus on sound quality has kept them away from streaming. Until now.

Like I said, blame Stephen. Aldous Harding's Party, released on 4AD in May of this year, is perfect.

Nothin' Bugs Me

To my way of thinking, if you want a DAC that offers USB, Optical, and Bluetooth inputs and you want it to sound good without deciding between it and a car, I have news for you.

This is an article about a USB accessory. Just thought you should know. If you're looking for writing that illuminates the social and political forces that brought us to this particular moment in our culture, allow me to suggest Hannah Arendt's Eichmann in Jerusalem.
