Table of Contents – Issue 188

Written by Frank Doris

I’m delighted to say that the ability to add comments to articles is back. Readers really missed this, as did I. However, since Copper is using a new platform, Disqus, you will have to do a one-time registration as a user (if you aren’t already registered). Let the conversations resume!

In this issue: Roy Hall meets a most interesting man. Harris Fogel saw a lot of people and gear at the CanJam 2023 headphone show. J.I. Agnew looks at the importance of good AC power. I review Octave Records’ latest, Conversations by composer Gustav Hoyer (and have quite a conversation with him), and Impex Records’ 1Step 2-LP 45 RPM release of Patricia Barber’s Nightclub. B. Jan Montana visits the automotive 2023 La Jolla Concours d’Elegance. We feature FIDELITY magazine’s visit to D’Agostino Master Audio Systems. Larry Jaffee is happy about the rebirth of Tower Records.

Noted audio writer Brent Butterworth sits in and asks: does surround sound have a future in jazz? Andrew Daly chats with noted Americana artist Dan Montgomery and his return to his rock roots. Anne E. Johnson looks at the career of Latin music titan Tito Puente, and new recordings of medieval vocal music. John Seetoo talks with George LaGrange and Joe Vitale of rockers American Nomads. Howard Kneller sits in The Listening Chair to enjoy an integrated amplifier from Tsakiridis Devices. We conclude the issue with pipedreams, a heap of audio bargains, and a copper audio experience.
