Capital Audiofest Cancels 2020
Confirms 2021 Show Dates

We apologize for our silence but are happy to announce that the Capital Audiofest (CAF) has finalized an agreement with the Hilton Hotel that allows us to move the show from 2020 to 2021 without any issues. We feel it is better to wait a year in order to provide everyone with the same CAF qualities inclusive of protections and safeguards rather than cobble together a lesser show. We greatly appreciate everyone being patient in this difficult time and want you and your families to be safe and able to return to CAF in 2021.

Bass Worship The story of Dub and Sound System culture documentary.

Bass Worship
Dub and Sound System culture documentary.
According to Wiki: "Dub is a genre of electronic music that grew out of reggae in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and is commonly considered a subgenre, though it has developed to extend beyond the scope of reggae. The style consists predominantly of partly or completely instrumental remixes of existing recordings and is achieved by significantly manipulating and reshaping the recordings, usually through the removal of some or all of the vocals, emphasis of the rhythm section (the stripped-down drum-and-bass track is sometimes referred to as a riddim)....

Life And Music After COVID-19

Life And Music After COVID-19
Roger Skoff writes about possible lasting gains from short-term ills.
Article By Roger Skoff
Although it seems vastly longer, it's really just a very few months since we first heard of COVID-19. For now, at least – although another outbreak this fall is declared certain by one group of "experts" and roundly denied by another – it seems that the disease has largely passed and that, after months of self-quarantining, it's time for what might well be described as a new kind of "Groundhog Day."

A system with wonderful synergy.

iFi Audio Zen DAC And Zen Blue Review

The New iFi Audio Zen DAC And Zen Blue

Clarus Duet Line Conditioner Review

Clarus Duet Line Conditioner
A journey though high-current line conditioning.
Review By Michael Zisserson Of Positive Feedback
"If the power supply of an amplifier is designed correctly, there is no need for a power conditioner." The quote is a paraphrase, of a paraphrase, of something that has been said since the first power conditioning devices for audio equipment crawled out of the ocean and began to breathe air. While the quote may be correct in theory, in practice, it is far from the reality of my listening experiences. No less: the canard that line conditioners do not add to the enjoyment of music through a competent audio system needs to be bedded down.

RSX Prime AC Power Cord Review

RSX Prime AC Power Cord
Presents the music to best serve your audio system.
Review By Dr. Michael Bump
Guilty as charged. I'm one of those audiophiles who, in the early days of my high-end audio explorations, was a non-believer in the significant effects of after-market cabling, in particular, power cords. I figured, as long as it looked like a garden hose, it qualified to bring the goods from my (modestly) high-end components. Quickly, however, I realized how naïve I was.

TriArt Audio S-Series MM Phono Amplifier And B-Series DC Linear Power Supply Review

World Premiere Review!
TriArt Audio S-Series MM Phono Amplifier
And B-Series DC Linear Power Supply

Find your bamboo groove.
Review By Paul Schumann
Yes, I am old. Old enough to remember when you could still buy mono and stereo versions of your favorite album. Old enough to have double-disc albums that were set up to play on your automatic record player. Old enough to remember when a company called Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab started producing "audiophile" versions of popular records because many of the run-of-the-mill pressings were so terrible.

Danacable Lazuli Reference Cables Review

Danacable Lazuli Reference Cables
Excellent build quality, durability, aesthetics, and sound.
Review By Smit Patel Of Audiosolace
While some cable companies explore the use of exotic materials or employ cryogenics to alter carrying signals, Danacable adopts a "back-to-basics" approach to enhance cable quality and transfer. Their philosophy concentrates on extremely low resistance to allow for unadulterated signal flow from amplifier to transducer. This review shall be focusing on the $1099 Lazuli Reference headphone cable that incorporates 1200 strands of oxygen-free cable (OFC) into a neat (but large) brown sheath design.
