AnalogPlanet Radio Returns With New Host Malachi Lui
Recently, I presented the idea to AnalogPlanet editor Michael Fremer that I could do my very own online radio show to post on AnalogPlanet. I could transfer most of the songs from vinyl, stitch them together, and speak in between DJ sets. MF said "try it and let's see how it turns out."

Newvelle Records Hosts Special Attended Recording Session At EastSide Sound Studios
The subscription based vinyl-only jazz label Newvelle Records, which just finished production of its fourth season's recorded offerings (the first title, Noah Preminger's Preminger Plays Preminger shipped last week), held a special event a the label's "home base" studio: EastSide Sound in NYC today, March 23rd.

Denon 103 Slip Over Aluminum Body: Does it Improve Sonics?
Denon's 103 cartridge originally introduced in the 1960s for radio station vinyl playback is still in production and now has achieved near-mythical status. A few third party body upgrades are available, most of which require the motor to be removed from the less than rigid original.

AnalogPlanet Editor Michael Fremer Interviewed
The day before he received the L.A. & Orange County Audio Society's Founder's Award in early December of 2018, AnalogPlanet Editor Michael Fremer sat down for a lengthy interview with film maker Ben Williams (who remained off-camera). Williams calls it a "guest monologue".

Air Force Zero Turntable Debuts: If You Have to Ask Price, You Can't Afford!
TechDAS debuted the Air Force Zero turntable at a recent (March 16th) event in Japan that commences a "world tour" for the 771 pound turntable (not including power supply and air pumps) that will make its American debut April 9th and 10th at The Audio Salon in Santa Monica California. It will next appear at Munich High End May 9-12th.

With 2019 Releases Record Store Day Outdoes Itself
On April 13, Record Store Day is back for its 12th year with over 500 releases only available at independent record stores. This year's list is arguably the best one since I've been attending RSD starting in 2014 (at age 8!), with fewer picture disc and colored vinyl re-hashings of common material and seemingly more unique items.

Which Beethoven?
AnalogPlanet editor Michael Fremer is not a classical music authority. If you didn't know that before watching this frantic, somewhat shallow video, you will after! That said, the video is still filled with interesting and insightful information about choosing a Beethoven set either new or in the used bins as well as a strong advocacy for your doing so even if you don't like classical music.

From The Archives: Analog Corner #113
CEDIA's annual late-summer Expo, held this year (as in most) in Indianapolis, came just in time for me this year. I hate the excruciating noise at the Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association's gathering, but I get the same charge from high-resolution video as I get from great audio, and the Expo is all about the highest-quality images. Audio?

Double "Unboxing": Analogue Productions UHQR "Axis: Bold As Love" MONO & Blue Note Review #2
Here's a double dose for AnalogPlanet readers (and YouTube viewers) who like "unboxing videos": AnalogPlanet editor Michael Fremer unboxes the not yet released Analogue Productions UHQR Clarity Vinyl mono issue of Jimi Hendrix's classic "Axis: Bold As Love" and the second edition of the deluxe "Blue Note Review" box #2"--this one a tribute to jazz drummers, particularly Art Blakey.

Rega Research's Less Is Much More Planar 8 (Plus Exclusive Interview)
Call it "P8" or "Planar 8" but do not call this new Rega turntable "RP8". That was the previous 8. Despite the obvious superficial Rega similarities the new Planar 8 differs greatly from its predecessor.

In Portland, Oregon A New Source For Per Madsen's "Rackit" Record Racks
An AnalogPlanet reader let us know about a new source for Per Madsen's "Rackit" record storage units (Per retired). Portland Oregon based woodworker Ryan Tinsel manufactures the record storage racks in his "one-man shop".

Talk Talk's Mark Hollis RIP
Talk Talk's Mark Hollis (center in photo) has died at age 64 after a "short illness". Readers unfamiliar with the group's astonishing later albums and who lump the group in with late '70s synth bands might not understand why this is news but Hollis's later Talk Talk albums Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock surely do. Hollis later released a self-titled solo album recorded with two microphones that ends with two minutes of tape hiss.

This $19 Pyle Phono Preamp Is Anything But Crap
An Amazon search for "phono preamp for turntable" (the last two words theirs) will yield approximately 395 results, and above most affordable Pro-Ject, Cambridge Audio, U-Turn, and Music Hall phono preamps are those of Pyle, a company that makes most every kind of easily affordable product; hifi and A/V components, pro audio products, fitness trackers, subwoofers for boats, kitchen appliances, pest controlling devices, and even security systems!
