AXPONA 2018 AnalogPlanet Takes You There
Analog Planet


Published on Apr 17, 2018
AXPONA moved to the spacious, beautiful Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel this year. The show was 30% larger than last year and the crowds were large all three days, but notably on Friday, which is usually a slow show day.

Walk the floors and halls with AnalogPlanet editor Michael Fremer who concentrated on all things analog at the show, though the coverage does not ignore the rest. The video opens with a "breeze through" of the large, ground floor rooms, followed by more complete coverage of analog developments in the EXPO area.

This is the first of a number of AXPONA 2018 videos you're sure to enjoy.

What sounds better: FLAC, WAV, CD, LP...?

I get these questions all the time, and I just don’t have what it takes to figure it out. I’m hung up on the sound of the recording itself, that’s what matters to me.

Playing a 104-year-old record: Alma Gluck - Carmena (1913)
VWestlife


Published on Apr 19, 2018
Victor 10" Red Seal 64400, recorded Dec. 29th, 1913 in Camden, NJ. Played on a cheapo modern record player with a 3 mil 78 RPM stylus, modified with a direct output from the phono cartridge to the ceramic phono input of a Radio Shack mixer. Some click/pop and hiss filtering was added in editing, but the EQ was untouched.

AXPONA Days 2 and 3 AnalogPlanet Takes You There!
Analog Planet


Published on Apr 22, 2018
AXPONA 2018 days 2 and 3 were spent mostly touring the upper hotel floors, with day 3 ending at the Convention Center on the other side of the Schaumburg Renaissance Hotel.

More new analog gear debuted at this show than had been expected considering that Munich High End is but a few weeks away.

You'll see new cartridges, turntables and phono preamps. While AnalogPlanet mostly left speakers, DACs and other electronics to Stereophile's coverage, a few rooms did receive more full blown coverage.

AnalogPlanet editor Michael Fremer does not waste time room to room making picayune sonic assessments. These are hotel rooms, after all, that mostly produce mediocre sound. If there's good sound it does mean something but if there's bad sound it means nothing—unless the host says "We're getting great sound"!

After you've watched this and the previous video, you will have pretty much seen everything new in the analog world at AXPONA 2018.

The Album Leaf - How He Scored The Endless (Interview Part 1)
Too Many Records


Published on Apr 25, 2018
This is the 1st part of a 4 part interview series with The Album Leaf and the creators of The Endless where we talk about movie scores, music, vinyl, and everything in between. The Album Leaf is a musical project led by Jimmy LaValle and has been one of my favorite things to listen to for years. He composed the score for both Spring and The Endless, two amazing films created by wunderkind filmmaker duo Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson. The Endless just released in theaters and is getting rave reviews from critics and fans alike.

I sat the three of them down and we nerded out about music, movies, and vinyl for hours. Jimmy also sheds light on his new vinyl focused label, Eastern Glow Recordings, who will be releasing The Endless (and eventually Spring)'s scores on vinyl! This is part 1 of 4 of the cut-down interview, explaining how Jimmy hooked up with Aaron and Justin to score their incredible films.
