You're enjoying a lovely evening in the park - sandwiches and softball. A nice-looking kid comes over and offers to sell you an iPod for $100. You're reluctant, but it's a really sweet deal. You agree. The next day, you find out you've bought stolen goods. Congratulations! You're a business partner in the latest crime wave: stolen MP3 players.

Until recently, in-wall speakers were the last choice for anyone who cared about sound quality. Now, thanks to improved technologies and the entrance of major speaker brands into the burgeoning "architectural audio" category, in-wall (and ceiling) speakers are legitimate alternatives in rooms where you either can't or don't want to use freestanding models.

In-wall speakers have come a long way since the first models, which were essentially re-purposed car-stereo speakers. That dramatic improvement over the past decade is due largely to the boom in "architectural" audio products driven by the advent of flat-panel TVs, any-room home theater systems, and whole-house audio.

Musicians are the backbone of several industries: recording, broadcasting, music publishing, live performance, etc. Several of those industries are currently waging a rhetorical free-for-all over what musicians get paid. It's like watching a pit full of weasels fight over a burger.

I'm nothing if not loyal to my reference gear. Google "fleischmann rotel rsx-1065" or "fleischmann paradigm studio 20" and you'll see what I mean--the latter alone brings up more than 900 links on this site and elsewhere. I continue to use, and implicitly recommend, these products because they sound great, combine the best traits of both real-world and high-end audio, and give my ears a stable and reliable benchmark against which to judge other things. When I tell speaker makers I use the Rotel, they breathe a sigh of relief. So do receiver makers, when I tell them I'm using the Paradigms. The reference pieces also like one another. Hearing them together recalibrates my ears between reviews. I wish I could listen to them more often.

Shane and David are taking shrapnel over on Shane's blog regarding BD replication "rumors" (which are what Blu-ray fanboys calls factual, documented and critically contradictory statements from Sony's DADC division regarding BD disc yields over the span of a year) so I thought I'd run a flank attack and see if we can't create enough of a diversion to get those two to safety.

CEATEC (See-Tech) is a yearly trade show in Tokyo, Japan. For the most part it is either a preview of what the Japanese manufacturers are going to show at CES, or what they’re hoping to come out with in the near future. Then there’s the rest of the massive building that has parts like LEDs, IR transmitters, and all the bits that are in the products you buy.

If doubling the refresh rate of an LCD to avoid motion artifacts is a good idea, is tripling it an even better idea? Showgoers at Japan's CEATEC show got an eyeful of a JVC prototype last week that does just that.

Could the cheapest Blu-ray Disc player on the market be about to get $100 cheaper? Hot on the heels of a UK announcement of a cheaper PlayStation3, speculation online began that a $399 US model would follow. The Hollywood Reporter cited industry sources that seem to be calling it a done deal, citing that the cheaper PS3 will hit US stores November 2nd.
