Week Twenty- Seven – Everyone Wants To Take Ad...

What IS it with the bloody sense of entitlement these days? Monster Audio, RAC dash cams’ marketing ‘professionals’ and even an audio company that does know better, lately have all to a man and woman thought that I will happily get up in the morning and expend my stock in trade for them as some s...

Girish Janday - PIONEER VIDEO STAR!

Jun 23 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Technology
As promised, here is the rather smart, terribly European and deeply corporate Pioneer Android Auto video, featuring Girish Janday. As said in the editorial column this week, it is very slick but if I had been the director, I would have had the star find himself to be low on fuel and ask Android A...

Pioneer Electronics have got a special historical cachet in UK car audio. For of the Japanese brands, they are the one that most people who deal with the oily bits of your car remember. Especially if they are old geezers! They have the widest mainstream brand awareness of anybody. In the days whe...

For most of my career I have written for Home Cinema Choice magazine as well as writing about car electronics. Moreover my mother was an author and had 92 books in print at peak! I fitted in nicely with HCC and their antipiracy culture because my privileged education was paid for out of royalties...

Week Twenty- Five – I Have Been For A DRIVE!

Jun 15 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
I do feel a lucky soul. For I have just returned from the Lake District. Apart from the wonderful M6 expressway tollroad, the drive was a bit tedious each way, actually taking exactly as long as the navigation system suggested at outset. My rate of general progress has always distorted my worldvi...

I don't usually highlight any given thread on the forum but this needs to be seen by everyone, even those few who see the mag but might miss a post. It's self explanatory and very cool. I shall most certainly be there to snap and video...

Regular readers may already have seen today's "This Week" column. It which I rashly bragged that I was going to upgrade my chum Adam's Transit Connect van. In fact, not only had I got the wrong adapter and failed to get an FM antenna converter but also, the lack of necessity for a fitting kit was...

You know what? Downstairs, tucked inside a glass cabinet in my living room there is a little lump of plate glass. It stands upon a small plinth, also made of glass and upon it is engraved the legend, “Lifetime Achievement Award”. Looking at that and knowing it was from the mobile electronics trad...

MEET TALK AUDIO TV'S DUTCH CORRESPONDENT

Just when I was starting to feel a tiny bit cleverer about actually moving from gonzo no-cuts videos to some degree of edited video work, I get sent this stuff. It is brilliant. Way better than the state of my weak art. For I got a serious bite on my request to the Dutchmen. Alexander Roeken and...
