The Sony Walkman downfall.

Maybe it's nostalgia but I think the golden age for Sony portable audio was in the late 90's, some years before the release of the original Apple iPod. I already wrote about portable audio in the 90's and also about the quality improvements in portable audio since the 80's, but I want to write about... Continue Reading →

Sony – MH755 Mini Review.

I bought the Sony MH755 for 10€ with shipping on a eBay Japanese shop (these are not fake, here's the serial tag). I’ll try my best to give an honest opinion about the gear, keep in mind I'm might have a slight bias towards Sony because I collect Sony Mini-Disc Walkmans and have a deep... Continue Reading →

Audio Enthusiasts – Ross Andrews.

I'm going to be sincere, I don't know when I started following Ross's blog, but lets say probably when I still had my old Tumblr blog. That was a long time ago, believe me.

How to spot a fake Sony MH750 / 755.

I really like the Sony MH750/755 models which were first praised by Crinacle on Head-Fi, so much that I bought from different shops just to find out there are a lot of turds fakes floating around these days. Crinacle wasn't kidding, so beware of fakes. It wasn't a truly altruistic endeavour, I just want to... Continue Reading →

Mainstream headphones.

Audiophile headphones* are a niche market, a profitable one but still small when compared with the professional and the mainstream markets. In this hobby most of us, if not all, tend to have a "limited" view based on our experience with gear, audio/music related knowledge and the communities we interact with. Let's imagine that our...

Updating presets on a Korg A3.

This all started when my brother-in-law asked me to buy a cheap generic USB to MIDI cable so he could update the presets of a Korg A3 performance signal processor. The A3 is mostly known for the iconic "U2 - Mysterious Ways" guitar effect and is now a processor some guitarists want to have on their... Continue Reading →
