  iPod users can now record high resolution audio! A Linux ipod website claims that a new free utility allows for recording from 8kHz up to 48kHz sampling rate. Called Podzilla, this program allows for Line In microphone recordings to be used at higher sampling rates. The website claims that users can boot the unit to either their Linux OS or the normal iPod OS, though future iPod offerings may not allow booting to Linux and, therefore, may eliminate the ability for high resolution microphone recording.

Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)  The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), a trade group that represents the United States recording industry whose members create, manufacture and/or distribute approximately 90 percent of sound recordings, have filed a new wave of copyright infringement lawsuits against 754 individual file-sharers. "With legal online retailers still forced to compete against illegal free networks, the playing field remains decidedly unbalanced," added Sherman. "That's why continued enforcement against individuals stealing and distributing music illegally is essential, as is holding accountable the businesses that intentionally promote and profit from this theft."

In related news, the largest law enforcement operation against CD manufacturing plants producing and selling counterfeit music was conducted recently. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department acted on five raids simultaneously that involved over 65 detectives. "Virtually unprecedented in size and scope, today's anti-piracy operation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff and others delivered a significant blow to piracy during a critical sales period for the recording industry," said Brad Buckles, Executive Vice President, Anti-Piracy, RIAA. "CD plant piracy is particularly damaging because the counterfeit goods produced tend to appear more authentic and often end up in legitimate music distribution chains."

Wavelength Audio Ultimate  Wavelength Audio 's new Ultimate series of preamplifiers, amplifiers, headphone amplifiers, and integrated amplifiers is said to be "as close to custom products as anyone can offer." Preamplifiers and integrated amplifiers have separate power supply chassis and provide three digital inputs (USB, Toslink and RCA or BNC).

Also included are a pair of analog inputs with the preamplifiers also offering an optional phono stage. A wide variety of output transformers including silver, copper and some combinations are offered. Basically the customer picks the tube devices and Wavelength Audio will design and build the product.
