2nd Edition

Download of the Week: Orchestra Baobab
"West Africa's most iconic dance-band". Sunnier days. I first found Orchestra Baobab through their 2015 release Pirates Choice. Digging that, and digging back into their catalog, Bamba (Sterns, 1993) rung my bell the mostest. This is beautiful soulful dance music that makes me want to close my eyes and imagine other sunnier climes.

HoloAudio Spring DAC LEVEL 3 "Kitsune Tuned Edition"
The discrete R2R HoloAudio Spring DAC offers two main operating modes; non-oversmapling (NOS) and a chip-based oversampler (AKM AK4137). You can switch between these modes of operation by simply pushing the front panel "OVER SAMPLING" button.

Download of the Week: Visible Cloaks
Reassemblage, Visible Cloaks' 2nd full-length released on VNG Intl. last month, reminds me of one of William Gibson's worlds. Machine music, computer music, glitchy ambient exotica streaming from the ether of tomorrow, now.

Lumin M1
Look Ma, no DAC! The Lumin M1 takes your network-attached digital music files (up to 32-bit/384kHz and DSD128 via DoP), converts them to 24/176.4 (PCM), which in turn gets converted to a pulse-width modulated (PWM) signal, and outputs 60wpc into 8 Ohms and 100wpc into 4.

Lossless Streaming Coming To Spotify
Word. The The Verge reports that Spotify subscribers are receiving teaser offers for Spotify's not-yet-available lossless streaming tier ranging in price from $5 to $10 on top of the $10/month Premium Service fee. This puts Spotify's lossless service within or on the same plane as Tidal HiFi's $19.99/mo.

Lovely Recordings by Craig Errey (Part Deux): Chaural Delights
Hey, did you like what I did there? What a clever word play if I do say so myself!!! ;-) In this second selection, I feel I can only start with a confession... And here goes... Whew!! It's tougher than I thought. OK. This time... I love watching Pitch Perfect.

Peachtree Audio nova300 Amplifier
What's 2.0? The short answer--improvements (here's the longer answer). Late last year, David Solomon rejoined Peachtree and the company made some other (major) changes; a new engineering team was brought on board to create the new Nova line of amplifiers (nova150, nova300, and nova500) and manufacturing of the Nova line was brought back from China to Canada.

Monthly Spins: March 2017
There's an old Greek proverb that goes: now that you've eaten the donkey you might as well go ahead and eat the tail. We stagger into March riveted by a new gathering of sounds, once again drowning out the fetid squawk of competing propaganda.

exaSound Audio Design e32 DAC
When I recently heard that exaSound Audio Design had released a new model replacement for their e22 DAC, I immediately contacted George Klissarov, President of exaSound Audio Design, to see if I could get a review sample of the new e32 DAC for an AudioStream review.

Download of the Week: Maggie Rogers
There are at least two things I love about Maggie Rogers; her music and the way I came to know about her music. That way was through my friend Rafe Arnott who has recently become a full-time audiophile as Part-Time Audiophile's Editor at Large.

What Do You Want From Your Hi-Fi?
A simple question. A simple question, and one that one could assume has but one answer. But it doesn't. I want my hi-fi to make me feel, through music, the way I feel when I listen to the life going on around me.
