A recently posted review of a phono preamp on a website that is not deserving of mention here once again makes the specious claim that curves other than the RIAA were used in the mastering of stereo records. This is simply not true.

Originally written for Stereophile and handed in September, 1999 I recently found this story in a "dusty file" on my computer and thought it worth sharing.—Ed

Rabbi Fremer says: The Peter, Paul & Mary file comparison story has created quite an uproar. Most of you took it for what it was—an informal but reasonable comparison of two unidentified files that could have been the same or different. 79% of you thought they were different files. 21% though they were the same file posted twice.

Even if you are an infrequent TV viewer, chances are you've seen the Dell commercial that uses as a music bed a cover of the great Doc Pomus/Mort Shuman song "This Magic Moment" originally performed by Ben E. King and The Drifters and later covered by Jay and The Americans among others. The only ads running more frequently are the ones that say "your erectile dysfunction is a matter of blood flow".

So I'm driving back from Washington D.C. where I'd gone to install an Etna cartridge in an AMG Viella turntable for a friend. His politics are 180 degrees diametrically opposed to mine. In fact, he's a consultant to "those people". But you know what? Politics stops for me at the lead-in groove.

Look at this print ad for the Manila Hi-Fi Show I recently attended. It is a model of clarity, good taste and communicates effectively the event. Do you agree?

Over this past weekend September 29th and 30th The American Kennel Club hosted its annual "Meet the Breed" event at New York City's Jacob javits Convention Center. This post is definitely not "on subject"! Well it partly is.

Yes, I apologized for my over the top reaction to Rob Sevier's The Wire story. Had you told me after I'd read it that he and his partner ran a vinyl record label, you could have knocked me over with an MP3.

Please read the stupidest article ever written about the vinyl resurgence published online by The Wire.
