I’ve just recently moved to the West Coast, so when Focal reached out and informed Rafe and myself of a new store opening in Phoenix Arizona, it was a serendipitous coincidence of interest too good to pass up. I had a friend once who when asked if she believed in coincidences replied ‘well of course, somebody has to plan them!’

David Solomon of Qobuz North America has become a familiar face at domestic audio shows the past few years, and for good reason, he’s one of the friendliest, most enthusiastic and all around fun guys in the industry – even amongst the young-at-heart crowd.

I used to religiously watch a sci-fi TV show called Space 1999 when I was kid. Who would have guessed that four decades later it would help inform my take on the current state of wireless high fidelity.

When I was growing up my father spoke to me about the danger of hyperbole – I was 11 or 12 years old at time. I bring it up because that moment popped into my consciousness again as I was transcribing the listening notes from my time with the Audio Note DAC 5 Special.

In a bold move that could rock TIDAL’s boat, Qobuz, the French high-resolution and CD-lossless music streaming and download service, has eliminated lossy, MP3 files from its paid catalog.

Traditional UK high-fidelity doesn’t have much more of a poster child than Naim Audio. With more than four decades of experience as a purveyor of audiophile sound, the company rolls out changes with thought, cadence and a nod to longevity and future-proofing.
