Bob Ankosko Posted: Jul 12, 2016 0 comments Ever heard of ’em? I hadn’t but was intrigued when I saw the press release: “Live Music Pioneers Launch Streaming Service.” Turns out the company has been making professional recordings of concert performances available to fans of jam bands for years—something followers of Gov’t Mule, Phish, and Widespread Panic probably already know. To learn more about this unique service, I reached out to founder Brad Serling.

In June, FILMFEST HD, one of the VOOM HD Networks, will begin a month-long Bond-fest showing high-definition world premieres of 17 classic James Bond flicks. While the very thought of seeing so many Bond movies in High Definition ought to send orgasmic shivers of delight through the remote controls of any James Bond devotee, the news gets even better. The movies will be uncut and commercial-free. David Hasselhoff will serve as the on-air host.

So director James Cameron plans to significantly improve the 3D experience of Avatar 2—scheduled for release in December 2014—as revealed in an interview with the Wall Street Journal's Speakeasy blog.

Many home theater fans use in-wall speakers for rear/side channels. Some even use them for the front channels as well. It's a space saving strategy, but one fraught with acoustic problems, the most prominent being the unpredictable nature of the "bay" into which the in-wall speaker is installed. Is it big or small, empty or stuffed with insulation? These factors make a huge difference in the performance of typical open-back in-walls.

Some consumer electronics manufacturers report that their Japanese operations are more or less getting back to normal. While the net impact of Japan's chain of disasters on its economy remains to be seen, there are a few hopeful signs.

Yamaha reports that the catastrophes will not have "any significant impact" on supplies of the products it makes, including consumer a/v, pro audio, and musical instruments. Existing inventory will supply short-term demand. The company has confirmed that all employees are safe.

Missing pieces include flash memory, random access memory, electronic compass, touchscreen glass, and battery, the latter from Apple's own Japanese factory.
