Rudresh Mahanthappa: The Time Is Now
An outburst of saxophone flurries sits you straight up in your chair. The tone is rich but with a cutting edge. It has to be Rudresh Mahanthappa. The riveting cry of his alto saxophone is one of the most recognizable sounds in jazz.

Andover Model-One turntable music system
Apart from the Beatles and Hendrix I heard in my audiophile father's basement, one of my earliest rock'n'roll memories involved a multipurpose record player at school.

HoloAudio May (Level 3) D/A processor
The email from Herb Reichert was intriguing. "I am, with great difficulty writing about HoloAudio's new two-chassis May DAC," he wrote. "It is death quiet and very natural. It makes every recording sound non-digital."

Yamaha A-S3200 integrated amplifier
