“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” – Albert Einstein

In this issue: We have two AXPONA 2024 show reports, from Rudy Radelic and AXPONA coverage from myself, and more coverage of CanJam NYC 2024, where headphone goodness abounded. Paul McGowan wraps up his series on favorite microphones and mic preamps. Octave Records has a new demonstration disc, The Art of Hi-Fi Volume 04: Strings. I remember audio retailing legend Andy Singer. Wayne Robins tells us about some very talented artists at the recent Folk Alliance International festival, and Jeff Weiner begins a series on favorite folk singers.

I interview Moti Margolit of Sonic Edge, creators of some very interesting and innovative micro-speaker technology. Ray Chelstowski talks with Bill Payne, veteran member of Little Feat, and Mat Kearney, about their upcoming new albums. Rich Isaacs has another installment in praise of test records and demo discs. B. Jan Montana revisits the analog obsession. From The Listening Chair, Howard Kneller digs the IsoTek V5 Elektra power conditioner. Guest articles from PMA and FIDELITY feature treasures from the vinyl vault and a visit to Italian audio manufacturer Gold Note. PS Audio gets some attention at AXPONA and elsewhere. We close out the issue with making the grade, paying for play, and childhood dreams.
