I’ve been fascinated by vintage audio – in particular, tube amps and horn speakers – for years. And while I have owned several more modern tube amps, I’ve yet to truly dive in. We’re changing all that today. Starting this month, I’ll be hunting vintage gear and writing about the experience. We’ll do some comparisons to […]

It’s been 5 days since I swapped in the Duelund Tinned Copper hookup wire. The Bottlehead Single-ended Experimenters amp has benefited from this adventure. We both have. I’ve been running the amp hard, and estimate we’ve got nearly 40 hours on it since the upgrade. Impressions The wire brought a remarkable improvement to sound quality, just […]
I had some success updating the internal wiring of my Tekton Lore with the Duelund 16GA tinned copper wire. Definitely gained more texture and tone with that simple upgrade. So what’s next? I grabbed some of the extra wire and replaced the copper wire in my Bottlehead amp with the Duelund. I focused on wire […]
Went to see some friends play last night at the Rebel Lounge. They were great, as always. There are few things better than hanging with friends watching live music. That said, I wasn’t sure we’d stay long. School night, and all. Thankfully, we did hang in, as the sparsely populated room was treated to an […]
Thanks for reading.
Proper Introductions Before we get into the Uptone Audio LPS-1 impressions, I want to take a moment to comment on what we’re doing here at thenewold.co. If this isn’t your first time here, then you know I am generous in my “reviews”. Well, that’s because almost every bit (unless otherwise noted) of gear I’ve written […]

This mini computer music server has grabbed many awards in the past year, and from some of our most trusted audio commentators. This made my purchase worry free. I won’t get into the details already available […]
One of my favorite features on NPR.org is Jazz Night in America. It’s been awhile since I’ve shared anything from the site, and this week’s feature is an interesting one. I’ve not yet seen the film, but plan to soon. Listen in for some real jazz musicians thoughts about the film.
Last night we saw Antonio Sanchez perform the Birdman score in front of the big(ish) screen. I don’t have any photos of the event, but wanted to post some thoughts on an inspiring evening. Sanchez was humble, thoughtful and funny as he opened the evening with the story of his Birdman experience – growing up in […]
