    A new receiver. Again.

    Many of the characteristics we associate with "quality" have nothing to do with performance, but they can sometimes increase reliability - though some do nothing to make the component longer-lived. A heavy chassis has very little to do with performance and rarely with reliability. In most cases...

    What Are You Listening To?

    Today The Who just released their first full-length album of new music since the 1980s. Called "WHO", it has their regular stage rhythm section and some pretty well orchestrated strings and brass filling in the performances by Pete and Roger.

    The guys from The Grand Tour are out promoting the new series, apparently called "The Grand Tour presents SEAMEN". They are not revealing anything, but they have been blowing up media sites like Youtube, FB, and others with interviews, interesting personal stories, and such like crazy. Anyone...

    I have decided I don't need surround sound, ever

    No amount of speakers can compensate for poor listener to speaker placement and poor acoustics. If you have a perfect stereo system with an absolutely ideal sweet spot, the sound-field and stereo image can easily virtually simulate sound coming from anywhere in the room. I've heard it and listen...

    What Movie(s) Did You Watch Today?

    I watched this short documentary about the catholic native community near my hometown. I watched this procession every year and enjoyed being friends with these people throughout my youth. One note, you may notice that all these people with Native American / Mexican / and long time local...

    Look, I really liked "Fleabag", I did! But all this talk of it being the best TV of 2019 is just, well, too much.

    So who's got Disney + ?

    I must have grown old. When I am out in nature, the last thing I ever want to see is a movie.

    What are you watching via streaming?

    What are you watching via streaming?

    If I were you, I'd open a ticket with CBS, not Amazon. I had an issue with shows freezing in the early days of CBS All Access and they gathered a ton of info from me and fixed it on the platform.

    So who's got Disney + ?

    I cannot express how frightening it is to see a guy at night alone in his car with the entertainment system, including his dash screen, playing content. With no one else in the car, I have to assume he looks at the screen fr more often than is safe.

    What are you watching via streaming?

    For about two weeks I've had serious playback issues with CBS All Access. Since I pay for the lower cost service with commercials, I get frustrated that the commercials will play before the show I want to watch, then the screen goes black and doesn't start playing before I lose my cool and...

    So who's got Disney + ?

    One of the reasons Disney waited so long to launch their service was to get greater assurance that the quality to each user is up to their stringent standards. Regardless of my opinions of their content, as a company they have always put a high priority on the quality of the end product as seen...
