The AXPONA Chronicles 2023 Part 11 Sound systems singing with two speakers on the second floor. Audio Expo North America 2023 Show Report By Rick Becker

The AXPONA 2023 Chronicles: Part 11
Sound systems singing with two speakers on the second floor.
Audio Expo North America 2023 Show Report By Rick Becker
There is but one stairway leading from the 3rd Floor down to the 2nd. It emerges just to the right of the Registration Desk at the hotel. It is not difficult to find if you're already on the 2nd Floor, as it is well marked. But if you're on the 3rd Floor walking from room to room looking at audio gear, it is hard to remember in which corner of the Atrium that stairway is hiding. The alternative is to wait for the elevator. Some signs in each corner of the 3rd Floor or a billboard in the stairway corner that could be seen across the Atrium would be helpful.

HIGH END 2023 Show Report By Carlos Martin Schwab
For someone with a background in professional sound, immersing myself in an insanely expensive home audio fair, or High-End (a term that defines the branch of audio that has no limits to reaching sonic perfection), is as interesting as fun, and that's why I've been doing it since 2014. This year, most of the 550 exhibitors did their best and the fair received more than 22,000 visitors.

AES Journal Special Issue Concerning VR And AR

AES Journal Special Issue Concerning VR And AR
The Journal of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) is their official publication featuring only peer-reviewed articles. The May 2023 issue of the AES focuses on audio for virtual and augmented reality. papers featured within this issue includes MPEG-I immersive audio, which is a forthcoming standard that is under development within the MPEG Audio group (ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29/WG6). This is to provide a compressed representation and rendering of audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) applications with six degrees of freedom (6DoF). Within the article the SONICOM HRTF dataset they cover immersive audio technologies ranging from rendering spatialized sounds accurately to efficient room simulations. These are considered vital to the success of augmented and virtual realities to produce realistic sounds through headphones.

Within the article The Ability to Memorize Acoustic Features in a Discrimination Task, it gives technical insight into how humans perceive, recognize, and remember room acoustics is of particular interest in the domain of spatial audio. For the creation of virtual or augmented acoustic environments, a room acoustic impression matches the expectations of certain room classes or a specific room. Another article is about Spatial Reconstruction-Based Rendering of Microphone Array Room Impulse Responses. This is quite interesting as the reconstruction-based rendering approach is explored for the task of imposing the spatial characteristics of a measured space onto a monophonic signal while also reproducing it over a target playback setup. Other articles include Efficient Binaural Rendering of Spatially Extended Sound Source, and another article that reports on the Perceptual Significance of Tone-Dependent Directivity Patterns of Musical Instruments. There's much more within the May 2023 issue of AES' Journal.

Boston Audio Society Tests ATSC 3.0 Tuners

Boston Audio Society Tests ATSC 3.0 Tuners
The Boston Audio Society (BAS) this weekend will discuss testing of two new ATSC 3.0 tuners, one from ZapperBox and the other from HDHomeRun. Six Boston television stations launched NextGen TV broadcasts that marks the expansion of NextGen TV/ATSC 3.0 signals into another major USA markets. This new audio / video system is poised to replace the existing USA digital television delivery system (ATSC 1). This new form of hybrid, over-the-air, and broadband-connected TV is now available in many USA television markets. The BAS tests will report on their distance pickup, features including immersive multi-channel audio, and multipath rejection.

ATSC 3.0 supports three video formats: legacy SD video, interlaced HD video, and progressive video. Progressive video supports resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 and supports HEVC Main 10 profile at Level 5.2 Main Tier. Progressive video supports frame rates up to 120 fps and the Rec. 2020 color space, and HDR. Unlike the current standard, the ATSC 3.0 standard is Internet Protocol (IP) based and thus promises to expand the potential for broadcast spectrum capacity to support new services beyond traditional over-the-air video in ways that will complement the nation's burgeoning 5G network. If you'd like to join this meeting, learn more and contact the BAS at this link.

Europe's largest, and most attended, premium audio show!
HIGH END 2023 Show Report By Jason Kennedy
A year after Europe's biggest high-end audio show returned to the MOC exhibition center in Munich there was some question over whether it would remain as popular as it had been before the pandemic, as it turned out that question was answered on the first of the four days with a substantial turn out from exhibitors and visitors alike. Last year there were very few companies from the Far East at HIGH END 2023, as they returned in force with one brand, ESD, bringing the biggest system ever seen at the event and taking over the largest room.

Well, It seems I screwed up again today, starting about halfway down the side of the aisle, probably thinking this was where I left off on Saturday (up on the 4th Floor). I'm going to have to cover Capital Audiofest incognito lest the hit squads of some of these rooms catch up with me. Of course, it may simply have been the case that the guys running these first few rooms were late to work.

Black Ice Audio Fusion F100 Monoblock Vacuum Tube Power Amplifier Review

World Premiere Review!
Black Ice Audio Fusion F100 Monoblock Vacuum Tube Power Amplifier Review
Plus a great story about Jim Fosgate's Odyssey circuit.
Review By Ron Nagle
To tube or not to tube? Strange as it may seem, that age-old question is still relevant. Today new materials and innovative designs have taken vacuum tube audio components to a higher level. When I first saw the Black Ice Fusion F100 in room 504 at the Capital Audiofest, they were powered with Russian Tung-Sol KT150 beam tetrodes. This innovative tube is only one type of power tube the F100 can use, each with a different musical voice. This ability has a substantial fundamental advantage. Unlike solid-state amplifiers, you need not be stuck with one solid-state sound. Like a fine wine, the sound of vacuum tube audio components can appeal to many diverse tastes.

The AXPONA 2023 Chronicles: Part 9
Fantastic fun on the fourth floor.
Audio Expo North America 2023 Show Report By Rick Becker
It's now very late I the afternoon on Saturday as YG Acoustics introduced their new Peaks series more than a year ago and my first couple of exposures to it were interesting. My impression took a big step up here at the AXPONA 2023 show with their smallest floorstander, Talus ($14.2k), driven by Bel Canto electronics. I heard more deep bass and the reason is that YG Acoustics added their Descent active subwoofer with DSP filter ($7800), which made its debut at this show. It features an 11" BilletCore driver, a 3" voice coil with titanium former, and a 1000-Watt amplifier with a 124dB S/N ratio. It weighs in at 110 pounds so this is a pretty serious sub.

HIGH END 2023 Show Report By Ray Chowkwanyun
Just made it to Munich from Vienna before the car broke down. Pondering how to get back. My vision of the Munich HIGH END 2023 hi-fi show is that it would be me sitting down with the exhibitor and doing a leisurely A/B of Linda Rondstadt's "You're No Good" met with loud guffaws from show veterans. This is not a casual gathering of your neighborhood audiophiles. This is serious business. A trade show in short, full of serious-minded folks in grey suits bent on the pursuit of the almighty Deutschmark.

The fascinating 5th floor of premium audio gear.
Audio Expo North America 2023 Show Report By Rick Becker
This was an interesting speaker for folks who don't wish to obstruct a view any more than necessary. That's a premium full-range Cube Audio F10 driver mounted in the acrylic baffle with a downward-firing floor-coupled dipole woofer. Acrylic has its vulnerability to dust and scratches over time, though there is a special polish for it. The $5900 (plus shipping) speaker is also available with gray or bronze tinted baffles which offer interesting possibilities. The wood supports are available in custom colors as well. The woofer was a 15" Eminence Kappa Professional Series 1200W woofer and out back there was an integral 500-Watt DSP amp / crossover / EQ.

What are the criteria for inclusion in the magazine? I'm sure that many readers have asked these questions, so I'll share with you some of the decision-making that goes into the process. I'll also let you in on the behind-the-scenes maneuvering that sometimes occurs as manufacturers jockey for position in the magazine. Although we publish many more product reviews than other magazines, TAS can review only about 80 to 90 products per year. That math dictates that we must be very selective in choosing review products out of the many hundreds of new-product introductions every year. The selection criteria start with whether we have reason to believe the product will be outstanding."

Continuing along around mid-day on Saturday.... I met Don Thomas of Wathen Audiophile out of Houston, Texas, who presented two completely different speakers in a rig that drew considerable attention from people who ventured into this room. Wathen is not a household name in the high-end... yet. The speakers were powered by Decware amps, 20 Wpc on the left and a 6 Wpc amp on the right, which the guy was photographing. These are rarely seen at shows and the production wait list is backed up to the time you will retire.

Where Do We Go From Here? Classic Audiophiles Versus Modern Music Lovers

Where Do We Go From Here?
Classic Audiophiles Versus Modern Music Lovers
Will 360-degree audio change the face of old-school stereo 'philes?
Editorial By Steven R. Rochlin
Modern times bring modern solutions. First came recording audio over 100 years ago using a now-primitive needle scraping wax. Eventually we humans invented the microphone, to eventually amplifying musical instruments to the point of going full-out synthesizing via Moog and others producing 100% electronically-created musical instruments. Music lovers over the generations have gone from the wax cylinder and vinyl LP recordings to today's pure digital Hi-Res Music. What was once a challenge to find that special rare vinyl LP record within your 2000+ collection has become to today's computer search feature that instantly streams your fave tune from the millions of albums available online. How are those 'Classic Audiophile' types going to accept the 'Modern Audiophile' is still yet to be fully grasped imho.

One Trillion Music Streams During Q1 2023

One Trillion Music Streams During Q1 2023
According to Luminate, an entertainment data and insights company with data compiled from hundreds of verified sources, says that global music streams reached an impressive one trillion (1,000,000,000,000) during the first three months of 2023. This is a new all-time record for the most amount of music streaming in three months. Luminate says, "Global music On-Demand Audio streams crossed the one trillion mark on Friday, March 31, 2023, marking 2023 as the first year for that milestone to be reached in just three months. The news follows Luminate's 2022 Year-End Report data that showed a +22.6% growth in On-Demand Audio streams year-of-year from 2021." To put this into perspective, music listeners enjoyed ~960,000 years of streaming music during those first three months.

Audio Expo North America 2023 Show Report By Rick Becker
With the drop in altitude, the air was easier to breathe on the 7th Floor. Nonetheless, it must have been difficult for the guys in the first room that normally reside at sea level. This was listed in the program as "Wolf Systems" but it was actually (or co-) sponsored by the House of Stereo that came all the way up from Jacksonville, FL, with a very special rig. TAD has only recently returned to the USA and it was one of only a couple of brands sold by House of Stereo that were not seen elsewhere at the AXPONA 2023 show.

Bluetooth 5.4 Adds More Bandwidth For Hi-Res Audio

Bluetooth 5.4 Adds More Bandwidth For Hi-Res Audio
The Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group) is a global community of over 38,000 companies serving to unify, harmonize and drive innovation in the vast range of connected devices all around us.  They recently gave an overview of the advances and changes to Bluetooth technology to make way for future developments. The Bluetooth Core Specification defines several concepts that collectively constitute the Bluetooth data transport architecture. Among these concepts are the Physical Transport, Physical Channel, Physical Link, Logical Link, and Logical Transport. 

During their recent live briefing (seen here), they discussed new and upcoming Bluetooth features and capabilities and the impact they will have on emerging use cases and markets, including the Ambient IoT, electronic shelf labeling, and access control. They also discussed higher bandwidth rates to support lossless audio technologies. Also discussed was how LE Audio and Auracast broadcast audio are powering a wide range of exciting use cases across the audio streaming market. Eventually there will be no need for lossy compression, especially those that come from proprietary formats shielded in a grey-like mystery. Open standards and true lossless is obviously the way forward. You can download the Bluetooth Core Specification Version 5.4 PDF at this link.

The AXPONA Chronicles 2023: Part 5
Gold Pass suites and more on the 11th floor.
Audio Expo North America 2023 Show Report By Rick Becker
The 11th Floor was a short floor with only eight rooms plus the Gold Pass Suite. I've raved about the rig here before, giving it a Best Rooms award at Capital Audiofest as I recall. Just sitting in the chairs, much of the holographic sound quality goes to the JansZen speakers which have electrostatic divers in the middle of the front baffle as well as woofers above and below. But you can also see small side-firing speakers and I believe there is also a rear-firing driver as well which all contribute to creating a realistic ambient space for the music.

Audio Expo North America 2023 Show Coverage By Greg Weaver
The message containing the official attendance for this year's edition of AXPONA (Audio Expo North America) landed in my Inbox Wednesday, April 19th, at 3:35 pm. Coincidentally, that was just about the same time that Audio Group Denmark's Peter Hansen and I had decided to take a cigar break. Peter had swung by my place with a pair of the new Børresen X3 loudspeakers and an assortment of their Ansuz Noise reduction gear... but that is another story.

Within this month's editorial, Alan Sircom says "It's hard to imagine a time without the LP now. It's not just that the format is 75 years old, but that it is so damn durable. Even if the LP went through another fallow period like it did in the 1990s and early 2000s, it's still likely to rise, phoenix-like, once again. There's good reason for this, and it's a stealth example buried in this very issue. To illustrate our long history with record players – which goes back to the very first issue – we needed to trawl our archive of text, layouts and photos. Except we couldn't. First, some of that archive had been stored on SyQuest drives that are long since dead. Even if we could access the drives, the machines are beyond repair, use a connection long out of favour with computer companies and replacements are impossible to find."

Enjoying The Music Roger Skoff writes about what it's all about.

Enjoying The Music
Roger Skoff writes about what it's all about.
Article By Roger Skoff
We all read this publication; I even write for it, but have you ever thought about what our title actually means? For example, is "Enjoy the Music" an offer? Or an encouragement? Does it refer to any particular kind or genre of music? Or to the people who play it? Or to the gear that – if we listen in recorded form – it's played on? Is the emphasis on the music? Or on the enjoyment? Or is there not any emphasis at all? Should there be? And, if so, what? In the just-short-of 150 years since the invention of the phonograph and, coming with it, our first ability to record sound and make it into an enduring artifact, both music and the ways that people have experienced, enjoyed, and participated in it have changed radically>

Focal Celestee Closed-Back Headphones Review A wide front row soundstage with little depth.

Focal Celestee Closed-Back Headphones Review
A wide front row soundstage with little depth.
Review By Gary Alan Barker
It has been a long wait to get a review sample of the Focal Celestee Closed-Back Dynamic Headphone, over a year in fact, due to the extreme popularity of Focal's latest closed-back design, but it has certainly been well worth waiting for. Focal has a long history of designing and manufacturing some of the world's highest-performing loudspeakers and headphones. As a driver designer/manufacturer they have a certain advantage over those who need to outsource their drivers, and it has shown in their delivered product. One constant with Focal headphones going back to the original Spirit is a level of refinement of sound not found in comparably priced headphones, and on this score, the Celestee is no exception. The Focal Celestee Closed-Back Headphones are the latest offering in their closed-back designs, which are unique in that they offer the more open soundstage of open-backed headphones....

Audio Expo North America 2023 Show Report By Rick Becker
Business seemed to be booming for Geshelli Labs as I've noted in previous years. They target a younger audience with affordable gear and that bodes well for the industry. Their banner across the window at the end of the hall was a real attention grabber. In one of their two adjacent darkened rooms, they had headphone listening opportunities with a variety of headphones. A display case housed numerous versions of their products clad in Plexiglas. And for the more playful among us, they had a DAC in a wood chassis with a colorful confetti finish.

BPI Says Sales Of Music On Cassette Tape Near A Two-Decade High

Sales Of Music On Cassette Tape Near A Two-Decade High
According to the BPI, an organization that represents the UK's recorded music industry, has reported that in 2022 that both artists and fans embraced the analog cassette audio format within the UK and UK-based artists. Artists including Arctic Monkeys, Florence + The Machine and Harry Styles lifted UK cassette sales to their highest level in nearly two decades last year, according to new analysis from the BPI. Based on Official Charts Company data, sales of the retro format grew for a tenth consecutive year in 2022, reaching annual totals not seen since 2003. This was back when the year's two most popular titles were Now That's What I Call Music compilations and Daniel O'Donnell had the top artist album.

While sales of cassettes remain quite a bit lower than vinyl, having grown by 5.2% year-on-year to 195,000 units in 2022, according to the BPI the format is playing a significant role in the sales mix of some brand-new album releases. On 10 occasions last year, the format accounted for over 10% of the chart sales of the No. 1 album on the weekly Official Albums Chart. Some of these chart-topping albums sold more copies on cassette than on vinyl when they debuted at No.1! This includes Florence + The Machine's Dance Fever and 5SOS5 by 5 Seconds of Summer. More than a fifth of each album's first-week chart sales were claimed by cassette.

Holes: It's All Subjective Roger Skoff writes about why we own our systems.

Holes: It's All Subjective
Roger Skoff writes about why we own our systems.
Article By Roger Skoff
A friend of mine once told me that nobody wants to buy a drill. What they really want to buy, he said, is holes; it's just that they have to buy the drill in order to get them. He's wrong, of course. There are people out there who buy drills just for the pleasure of owning drills. They're called "drill collectors", and this article isn't about them – although there might be a little of the drill collector in some of us, too. For the rest of us, though – at least most of the time – what we want is the holes, and for audiophiles and music lovers, "the holes" are "musical enjoyment" and "the drill" is whatever it is that we have to buy, do, or have in order to 'get it'.

Make It Worth It!
Thankfully, products announced about a year ago are finally becoming available.
Editorial By J. Martins
In this Glass Audio Special issue of audioXpress we are proud to offer two high-quality tube amplifier projects from two renowned tube experts from both sides of the Atlantic. The first project by Menno van der Veen is another amplifier designed under the auspices of the author's TubeSociety initiative. The other comes from Thomas Perazella and in this case details a remake of a famous David Berning ZOTL amplifier. Both are of remarkable quality and value to all tube/valve enthusiasts at a time when it becomes increasingly more risky (and expensive) to build your own projects, unless we already know that the results are truly exceptional.

Time to spin some new records.
Editorial By Becky Roberts
By the time this issue lands in your letterbox, and hopefully by the time it lands in your lap, Record Store Day will be just days away. The annual celebration of the independent record store and everyone involved in it — the staff, the customers, the artists — takes place globally on Saturday 22nd April and, keeping with tradition, will see hundreds of special release vinyl (over 400, in fact) become available to purchase in stores on that day (and in some cases, online in the following days). If this comes as news, or indeed an unexpected reminder), to you, and you consider yourself a passionate spinner of the good wax stuff....

Investing In Premium Audio Gear
Welcoming a new generation of music loving audio enthusiasts.
Editorial By Alan Sircom
In recent years, it has become fine for people to embrace their inner nerd in almost every hobby or interest. Except audio. In audio, it's still unacceptable in some circles for someone to spend money on good audio without being pillaried for being at once a credulous sap and obsessed by 'bling'. And I'm not sure why we are the exception. Here's what I mean. British actor Henry Cavill (best known for playing Superman and his roles in The Witcher and Mission Impossible - Fallout) is known as an avid gamer and unashamed fan of Warhammer 40,000. He has spoken about this extensively in chat shows recently. Only a few years ago, his fanaticism over painting plastic spacemen would have been met with scorn and ridicule, but now it's met with genuine interest, even among non-fans.

The Absolute Sound April 2023

The Sweet Spot
The listening position exactly between a pair of speakers.
Editorial By Robert Harley

Just about every audiophile knows that the "sweet spot" is the listening position exactly between a pair of speakers and equidistant from each. That's the location where the sound from each speaker arrives at your ears at about the same time, allowing your brain to create a three-dimensional soundstage with a centrally placed image (if those qualities exist in the recording). Move the listening position slightly to the left or right, and the center image loses its tangibility and the glorious three-dimensional soundstage collapses. The sanctity of the sweet spot is vividly embodied in the description by a 45-year industry veteran, who likened sitting in front of a pair of speakers to "worshipping at the triangular altar."
