Once in a time there was a brand called Philips that invented a music format that revolutionized the entire world. It was the compact cassette, and that happened back in 1962. Quoted from the Wikipedia: “In 1962, Philips invented the Compact Cassette medium for audio storage, introducing it in Europe on 30 August 1963 at the Berlin Radio Show, and […]

I’m always been a fan of SONY products since 1986. I loved the quality of their materials, the design and the good mechanics. Since their ugly acquisition of AIWA and the huge fails with the advent of the MP3 I’m not a fan of SONY anymore. But no one can say bad things about their […]

I have seen this rare deck only in an old brochure. I must confess once I’ve seen it in action I’m in love with it. My friend Mat at Techmoan has finally found one after years of searching and he’s so lucky to have it in excellent and working condition. Believe it or not, but […]

After receiving a mixtape from the Nederlands recently I -obviously- started to make my first one (well, I’ve made a lot of them but for me or for friends in the real world, not for internet friends) which will go to Miles in that country. I don’t want to release all the details because surprise […]

Here’s my latest acquisition: a super-beautiful Technics RS-B965 in Champagne color. Its stock performance is nothing special, but what makes this particular one special is that it has been deeply upgraded by ANT Audio. The increase in performance is so high that they state that it can sound better than a Nakamichi Dragon, which is […]

I’ve never heard about Revox until a few years ago -say 2012- and it looked to me as very particular machines, with a design that is very different compared to the typical japanese decks. There is one Revox that caught my attention since a friend of me had one: John Lydle, a very nice and […]
