Doc B. brought his Crack, Speedball, Smack to do some sweet tape listening at CanJam. If you can wield a soldering iron these are great little amps.

I love the sound of hand-trucks in the morning.

It's set-up day at CanJam at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. I love set-up day. It's hard work, but it's also great fun saying hi to folks you haven't seen for a year. Hub-bubb, sweat, and yabber ... good stuff.

I was gonna do a fluff piece and write some cutesy captions for the pictures I took today, but this is my first trade show as a journalist and it's got me thinking.

I'm making ready to head off to RMAF, but I certainly didn't want to shirk my duties measuring Stax headphones, and getting them back to their rightful owners.

Here we go ...

Editor's Note: This article was nearly complete when I read of Steve Jobs's death last night. I think the conclusions herein are telling of his passion for making "insanely great" products ... right down to the last detail.

A couple of weeks ago, Steve Guttenberg wrote an article on his Audiophiliac blog entitled, "The Worst-Sounding Audio Product." In it he "aimed [his] sights on the worst sounding product regularly used by millions of people:" the stock Apple iPod ear-bud headphones. There may be some truth in that, but he also said, "Apple is an amazingly innovative company, but it's incapable of selling a decent set of headphones under its own name."

With this, I'm going to have to disagree ...
