I’m a sucker for a multi-channel audio release and of late, there has been little to get moist around the gusset about. 5.1 music seems to have faded away, whimpering into the cemetery of audio fads along with quadraphonic sound and the like. This is a big shame. A really BIG shame. multi-channel music can […]

I have always liked Bjork. For one, she’s cute. Secondly, and most importantly, she is an incredible talent. Her music, her performances, her personality, are all so incredibly unique. Her music spans so many emotions and genres, evoking a myriad emotions and requiring in depth listening and a level of intelligence not normally required in […]

This arrived today, and whilst I have yet to listen to the whole album, I did listen to “Duel” and “Dr Mabuse” which both sounded awesome and really work well in DSD & 5.1. Another Horn & Lipson masterpiece 🙂 The SACD can be bought from Amazon UK HERE I had also forgotten how attracted […]

This decision coincides with their new download shop being launched this week. There’s no doubting the business decision behind this, with downloads being a far more […]

At last !! The final five Depeche Mode Remastered albums turned up today. A tad delayed due to the fact that Songs Of Faith & Devotion was out of stock, but well worth the wait. Sadly, as I am an impatient man, and Mutebank weren’t sure until this week that they were going to get […]

When trying to convince people of the benefits and wonders of surround sound when it comes to music, I’m often told that it would be more accepted and embraced if people didn’t have to go out and buy new hardware to play the damned discs, and I can do nothing but agree. True, you can […]
