Week Forty – And I Had A Flirt With A T5

Sep 29 2014 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
My name is Adam Rayner and I drive by the seat of my pants. I like to extend out into every corner of my car, feel the tarmac beneath tautly inflated tyres, as your feet feel branches on the forest floor through a moccasin. I like the feel of the engine through the pedals, as that’s what you lose...

Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology

Sep 29 2014 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Technology
Ideally, you need to be knowledgeable about compressed music and the formats and consequences. The trade off between fidelity and dynamic range or punch versus storage space. The different amounts of detail that the different systems use and even – and we shall be playing with this soon – the DAC...

First and most importantly, a huge BIG UP to EMMA’s snapper-of-the-day Mr. Phil John https://www.facebook.com/philjohnphoto who was enjoined by Roo Ackerley of the UK arm of the European Mobile Media Association to photograph th...

The Gold Blend Of Bass – Instant, Rich Flavoure...

Sep 23 2014 00:00 | Adam Rayner in News
Here’s as promised is the press release about the bass systems sold under a brand called “OE”. Embroidered with nice tight stitches in white, upon taut carpeting, this is the only ironic thing, as original equipment from manufacturers rarely would have that upon it. Yet the OE name is to evoke th...

Meet the eBay machinations of Car Audio Zee or Caraudioz, which is the online iteration of PPA or ProPlus Audio.

STINGER – BACK AND FOR LESS!

Sep 19 2014 00:00 | Adam Rayner in News
The cognoiscenti know that Stinger wiring ordnance is a damn fine line of shizzle, yet by the time it got to the UK, it had to cost what was deemed by many to be too much. I always loved it, second only to the beloved StreetWires, that is way costly by comparison! Anyway, in the upper echelons of...

Week Thirty-Eight – I Forget The Speakers For A...

Sep 15 2014 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
Bizarre but true, I have a friend who is a top end Outback Trucker. I had thought it was HE who had counted in ‘points’ to be allowed to emigrate to Australia but no, it was his wife Mel, with her real estate qualifications that clinched it! John was the lad who had the 155dB Mmats Juggernauts in...

The DAC or digital to analogue converter is the modern ‘How High Is Your Fi?’ question of note. The quality of conversion from digits to tunes is horribly important and in in-car we get emotionally erect if we talk about Burr-Brown DACs and here is one in a tiny box. A scary GOOD one. It has been...
