A long time ago I posted something about the Scopitone video I love so much of Neil Sedaka’s “Calendar Girl.” More recently I posted a song by Nino Tempo & April Stevens. Here’s the brother-sister duo that’s like no other doin’ the jerk on Scopitone.
If “Race” Bannon is related to Steve Bannon, why does he look like Mike Pence? I’ll be taking in the Hanna-Barbera exhibit at the Norman Rockwell Museum to find out!
The finest sounding loudspeaker I have ever owned is now one of the best-ever audio bargains. Music Direct is offering the Wharfedale Denton 80th Anniversary Edition for only $400/pair, with free FedEx shipping. Order directly from Music Direct, or through Amazon.
Don’t be put off by the relatively small size of the cabinet and the 5-inch woofer. The cabinet is heavy and solid, with beautiful mahogany wood veneer — not cheap vinyl — on all sides, and bass response from the Kevlar woofer is excellent.
This is a warm, smooth and refined speaker, yet richly detailed and musically dynamic, in the best British mini-monitor tradition. The Denton is not ideal for a surround sound system, but for music it is magnificent, presenting an incredibly deep and wide sense of space. On 24-inch stands, not too close to walls, the low end is nicely well-articulated. Adding a subwoofer is not only unnecessary, it would be a mistake, in my opinion.
If you happen to read this in time, and you’re at all interested, take a look at online reviews, then take advantage of the deal before there are no more new Wharfedale Dentons to be had at this price, or at any price.
11/30 – Sorry, but the price has gone back up to $500. 🙁
Meet the new boss, definitely not the same as the old boss.
I voted last week, as if there is any doubt about the outcome here in the Massachusetts.
What the heck will they think of next? This is a Kickstarter campaign. If it actually goes into production, the proposed cost of the Mag-Lev turntable will be $1500, which is reasonable, considering the novelty level, if nothing else.
