For the tests and reviews I do here, I like to perform both objective and subjective tests. First ones consist in measurements in various ways. For the 2nd one I just listen to music. The question is… what songs are better? No one song is the best audio test. Some have good bass, some good […]
Yes, this friday 27th I’ll be CJ’ing again at Cara B pub in Barcelona with cassettes and walkmans. Yes, you read well: with cassettes and walkmans! If you like analog music as well as 70s and 80s pop, rock and pop/rock music, then you just got a plan for this friday! See you there!
The AIWA portable speakers in action, feeded with my Super-DD9 by Dr Walkman. Yes, through my phone’s built-in mic the quality cannot be fully enjoyed, but I assure you that they sound great. Powerful, clean, full and rich.
I’ve recently found a nice, unknown gem: Ana[dia]log Youtube channel. That’s a channel about dialog of analog music reproduction, which is how the author calls it. It covers many different aspects about analog audio, like vinyl, turntables, cassettes, R2R and even walkmans recently. And that’s exactly the video I wanted to show you: I […]
This saturday I’ve been at Cassette Culture, the very first market for small releases in cassette. See my first post about that. I’ve been CJ’ing for an hour and a half and it was a lot of fun, though it was more like ambient music rather than loud music for dancing. These small labels were selling mostly […]
Here are my best acquisitions that recently came home.

According […]

I recently published a quick note about De Bandjesfabriek that is preparing to sell this new tape in the Nederlands. Well, recently there was the Munich High end Show where they were showing his new tape (just […]
[UPDATED] The project has been cancelled and closed on 23th january. In their Facebook page they explained that: Dear ELBOW followers, we have two announcements to make today. 1. WE’RE DISCONTINUING THE ELBOW PROJECT. The product is not coming to market, ever. Due to many reasons – financial, technical, personal – this is our final decision. […]
Well, I bet so! While browsing information about the Munich Hi-End show I found two companies that are releasing new albums in tape: Entertape and Hemiolia. The former is only releasing them in reel tapes but the latter is doing it with cassettes. And here comes the interesting thing… I’ve seen that they released an album called A PORTRAIT OF […]
I’ve recently found an interesting store at eBay from a chap that has hundreds of -mainly- sealed tapes for sale: dr Bo. I was interested in many of them to complete my collection. Some are pretty rare and difficult to find, so I went and buy some. The prices aren’t cheap, even for less rare tapes […]
