This is awfully cool, especially if you know a little about NCT or noise-cancelling headphones, usually! Those cunning folks at Harman, have some serious future-now stuff. All that I wonder is how it copes with radio, as cans sometimes fail at this.. I cannot wait to hear this! RELEASE BELOW:

BMW’S SPEAKERS BEATEN BY MTX OFFERING

May 20 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in News
This will frankly make those ruddy smug BMW owners - as wittered about already this week - even more smug. Especially as they can preserve the precious warranty on their posh German whips, as well as giving the M-Power treatment to the damn audio. Well, MTX-Power to be exact, for while these loud...

I missed the motoring opportunity of a lifetime relatively recently, as it was the very day I was to drive my son to university in Norwich. It was at Kenwood’s magnificent UK HQ building, to see the astonishing BMW i8, which was there for reason I know not what. Since then, I have seen one of th...

ALPINE FILMING DAY - DONE LIKE NETFLIX!

May 15 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Technology
These days, the video clip is king. There are those who like a read and the electronic reader (Kindles, Kobos, kith and kin…) is a ‘thing’ now, despite their sales reducing and ‘real’ books (as well as real vinyl) rallying somewhat, which I adore almost as much as “Pearl Caprice’. The lass is a d...

This will be of interest to the trade readers and is also being published to show off a bit! For I have been a very, very fortunate bloke, repeatedly. I have been to Las Vegas to the International CES. I was first made aware if it by the sales dude at American Autosounds, when I was manager, who...

The old and wrinkly among you may recall a red Pug with Spearmint Rhino graphics and a mad Mmats ProAudio system in it. I featured it in Max Power a long time back… with a HUGE crane truck in the shoot. It was a happy accident, as we went to the A1/M25 truck park to make a shoot about the JUGGERN...

You know, there is an actual job which entails you Meeting & Greeting guests for BBC TV appearances, such is the volume of sofa-fodder for BBC Breakfast. The nice lass who does this job has to calm down terrified guests and ‘pundits’ who say “yes” only to realise just how suffocatingly exciting i...

Rockford Fosgate Tech Videos Give Me Goosebumps

May 05 2015 02:00 | Adam Rayner in Technology
You do have to hand it to Rockford Fosgate. I have been watching their R&D progress for twenty years. Can you believe that "The Rockford Way" was once about loading up a 2 x 22w RMS amplifier with four sets of components and a subwoofer, ALL entirely assembled in the gentle lunacy that is high po...
