To quote myself, “Measuring is an essential element in the design and manufacture of all audio components. But! As a tool for evaluation, or as a predictor of user satisfaction, today’s measuring procedures are almost useless.”

Like I mentioned earlier, when I’m at a CanJam I weave through the crowd down the isles – staying alert for what might jump out at me. This “JPS Labs stack” jumped out big time.

I did not need a divining rod to find the other portable audio DAC superstar: Chord Electronic’s 2Go streamer/server module.

No matter how much due-diligence I do before a CanJam event, I still do not know what is really new and exciting until I get there.

I’m always telling floorspeaker people how headphones “eliminate the sound of the room,” but laughingly the big jabbering-people-filled room at CanJam NYC’s Marriot Marquis gets so loud by noon – it penetrated even the most perfect fitting IEMs.

I didn’t go, but I heard about it. Jude Mansilla’s first ever national Head-Fi meet was in New York City 2006. I remember because one of my friends went and came home raving about “inner ear monitors” by Jerry Harvey. I was like . . . “What the hell is an inner ear monitor?” And, “Are you kidding me? People actually get together to listen to headphones?”
