This is an original article, inspired by a very recent experience with my wonderful son in law and an article I saw on The Audiophile Voice, of what’s called the Loudness Wars. Basically, a little information on why much of the music we listen to, sounds the way that it does.
I’m no recording or mastering engineer, but I do understand much of it. I also attend music concerts regularly and I still get baffled by how bad some of the shows we see, sound, at least before intermission.
More tomorrow, unless Paul posts a good one.
Confessions of an Audiophile
When I started to write my memoir, 99% True, it’s original working title was Confessions of an Audiophile. I figured it’d be a tell-all book about the HiFi industry and its people. It’s certainly that, but as it progressed through the year-long process of writing it became far more—thus, the title change to 99% True.
Since its publication, more than 5,000 people have read its contents and learned of my misbegotten youth and struggles to build PS Audio (and stay mostly out of jail).
Some who have read the book are still speaking to me.
The original print run of personally signed hardback copies is just about exhausted. There’s a hundred or so hardback copies left in our inventory and when they’re gone, I’ve no plans to print more.
If you’re interested in getting one of the last copies of my memoir in its personally signed hardback form, go here and grab one. If you would prefer the Kindle, paperback, our audiobook version, these can be purchased here.
To grab one of the last signed copies before they are gone, go here.
I do hope you’ll still speak with me after reading it.
