Opening day of Warsaw's Audio Video Show is typically less well-attended than it is over the weekend and that proved to be true this year though Friday's Sports Arena crowd grew considerably as the day went on and the final attendance figures have yet to be announced.

Lyra's Stig Bjorge stopped me in the corridor of the Warsaw football (soccer) stadium and pulled out of his pocket a small box that could contain only one thing, but instead there were two.

Coverage of Audio Video Show 2019 in Warsaw, Poland begins today on AnalogPlanet.com. But first, as long as we were in town, we decided to first visit wmfono, a small "boutique" vinyl pressing plant with 7 Lened and one Hamilton manual record presses.

Kanye West's devotion to Jesus is nothing new; it's a recurring subject throughout his discography. On his 2004 single “Jesus Walks,” he raps, “Now I ain’t here to argue ‘bout His facial features/Or here to convert atheists into believers.” In recent traveling-church-service performances with the Sunday Service choir, however, he changes the second aforementioned line to “we here to convert atheists into believers.”

You know what they say about audiophiles: only interested in what sounds good, music comes in distant second place or they repeatedly play the same few records, etc. You’ve heard the bad raps.

A hi-fi show at a racecourse? If the Warsaw show (coming up the weekend of November 8th-10th, 2019) can be successfully held at a football (soccer) stadium, why not have one at a racecourse? Especially the UK’s premier horse racing venue, and home to Royal Ascot. The UK’s largest and most iconic Grandstand is an innovative venue for a hi-fi show and, blessed with a dedicated electricity substation, is capable of delivering great sounds once the exhibitors have tackled the room acoustics.

Rainbo Records' President Steve Sheldon announced the other day that after pressing records for 80 years the company would close and liquidate its assets—and not because of a business slowdown. Quite the opposite as everyone knows.

Pro-Ject’s Heinz Lichtenegger is not shy about expressing his contempt for el-cheapo turntables coming from China and elsewhere. He thinks these mediocre-sounding turntables ruin the sonic experience for a young generation getting into vinyl.
