    Uniform Distortion

    My head feels like it is exploding with the amount of information we are forced to consume on a daily basis, and how that information is so DISTORTED there is almost no longer any tangible truth," says James. "The name of my new record is UNIFORM DISTORTION because I feel like there is this blanket distortion on society/media and the way we gather our 'news and important information. More and more of us are feeling lost and looking for new ways out of this distortion and back to the truth and finding hope in places like the desert where I write this now...finding hope in the land and in the water and in old books offering new ideas and most importantly in each other and love.

    A Distortion Of Love (Awaiting Repress)

    A Distortion of Love on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Acclaimed Pianist/Singer's Oft-Neglected 1992 Sophomore Effort Teems With Poetic Enterprise and Intrepid Originality


    Smooth, Transparent Sonics Worthy of an Intimate Venue: One of Only Two Barber Albums to Never Have Been Reissued-Until Now


    Audiophile Favorite Steams Up Mirrors With Enchanting Melodies, Breathy Vocals, Daring Originality


    Patricia Barber's origins are commonly associated with 1994's CafÉ Blue and the follow-up, 1998's Modern Cool. Both quickly established the singer/pianist as an immediate audiophile favorite whose rare combination of astute instrumental performance, daring originality, poetic enterprise, intrepid vocals, and sculpted production announced her as an artist that both takes immense care in her music as well as in her sound. While largely unknown to many, 1992's diverse A Distortion of Love signaled the beginning of Barber's unfettered creativity.


    Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered, limited-edition 180 gram LP of the Chicagoan's sophomore album features the similar wowing detail and perspective-altering clarity offered on the reissue label's celebrated versions of Mythologies, The Cole Porter Mix, and the now out-of-print and extremely sought-after CafÉ Blue, Modern Cool, Companion, and Nightclub.


    Such is the attention brought to Barber's tastefully reverb-assisted singing, the quartet's stripped-down arrangements, the grand piano's resonance, the background finger snaps, and the astounding transparency of every note and breath uttered in the studio. Smoothness, balance, and neutrality abound. Through and through, this is an audiophile delight.


    While national acclaim wouldn't come to Barber until the mid-90s, it wasn't because she didn't provide notice of her monumental talent and MacArthur Grant-worthy inventiveness. On A Distortion of Love, her individuality manifests on a surprisingly eerie rendition of the standard "Summertime" and subsequent "Subway Station No. 5," a lengthy piece adorned with atmospheric nervousness, tonal shifts, and contrapuntal movements that ultimately lead into a swinging theme.


    Barber, guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, bassist Marc Johnson, and percussionist Adam Nussbaum achieve like-minded heights on an improvised and clever read of the Temptations' "My Girl." Here, and again especially on the aptly titled "You Stepped Out of a Dream," Barber's textured vocals seemingly float on a jet-black plain, emanating as if her lips and mouth are just feet away, the slap of the acoustic bass and patter of the drums responding in kind to her expressiveness. Whether you're familiar with this album, a longtime Barber fan, or just coming to her for the first time, Mobile Fidelity's pressing of this record will please even the sternest critics of vocal jazz.

    Wait For Love

    Wait For Love, their fourth album, sees PIANOS
    BECOME THE TEETH taking another sonic
    step forward to craft a musical statement that truly
    transcends genres. The Baltimore natives have
    produced a collection of songs that feature lush
    soundscapes and a more nuanced and melodic
    sound when compared to the screamo-aggression
    of their early work.


    Fans who have followed the band's trajectory-
    from their 2013 split with TouchÉ AmorÉ-can
    trace the way the band's sound has evolved from
    a melodic screamo act to a group that create
    heaviness and weight via raw emotion instead of
    distortion and dissonance.

    I Love You

    Jason Urick explores a world of sound left to the far reaches of outer space. Building on the gentle ambient washes of sound from his debut LP Husbands and the more rhythmic and distorted tones of Fussing & Fighting, Urick strives to bridge the gap between the familiar and the unfamiliar with I Love You.


    Recorded at WORM in Rotterdam, at the Floristree in Baltimore, and at home in and around Portland, OR, the sounds were entirely manipulated, mixed, and constructed on his laptop. The end result is an eerie sound scape of fractured tones, warm sheets of sound, and cryptic voices. Rhythmic pulses underpin the songs, enticing the listener to explore every intricate detail.

    Chain Gang Of Love

    Import

    Remastered


    'Chain Gang Of Love', originally released in August 2003, is The Raveonettes' first full length album after they debuted with the critically acclaimed 'Whip It On' mini album in 2002.


    Their sound has often been compared with that of the noisy and distorted Jesus And Mary Chain, while the Velvet Underground and even the vocal harmonies of the Everly Brothers are never far away either. The most noticeable difference in sound between the debut EP, which had all songs in B-flat minor, and this album is that here all songs are in B-flat major. The result is an album drenched in an uplifting fifties and sixties sound.


    Because of this wall of sound you might expect a Phil Spector production, but Sune Rose Wagner himself (one half of the Danish duo which is The Raveonettes) and Richard Gottehrer (producer for a.o. Blondie and The Go-Go's, and founder of Sire Records) were responsible for this remarkable and uplifting release.

    All We Love We Leave Behind

    All We Love We Leave Behind is the latest album from Converge. Once again recorded and mixed by guitarist Kurt Ballou at his renowned Godcity Studios in Salem, Massachusetts, All We Love We Leave Behind is a no-frills Converge album that sees the band-which also features vocalist Jacob Bannon, bassist Nate Newton and drummer Ben Koller-eschewing fancy production techniques in order to create seventeen songs that work as a cohesive whole yet can also stand on their own. There's no artificial distortion, triggers, or Auto-Tune on this album, Ballou explains, it's all organic, it's real sounds that capture the way the band performs live.


    From the classic rock-inflected, guitar tapping madness of Sadness Comes Home to the technical acrobatics of Aimless Arrow and relentless assault of Shame In The Way, this is an extremely varied album that has enough sonic shifts to captivate each listener's attention. It's always been important for us to have a lot of dynamics in our music because no one wants to listen to a million miles an hour all the time, Bannon responds when asked about the melodic mid-tempo groove of a song like Coral Blue. I really enjoy that song, it has a lot of twists musically that aggressive songs don't usually have and that's something we take pride in.


    Lyrically Bannon approached All We Love We Leave Behind by once again writing about his own personal experiences, however there's no question that this time around his vocals are more direct and decipherable than they've been in the past. This is a personal record and all of the songs tell their own stories, Bannon explains. Every song is rooted in real life, documenting what I have experienced over the past few years. Correspondingly the title of the album is an apology letter to everything he has had to leave behind in order to pursue his path in art and music. Bannon explains that he feels like it's important to acknowledge these sacrifices in order to be a self aware individual.


    All of our albums are emotional but I feel this is our most potent album to date, Bannon continues. For me a songs like 'Predatory Glow' and 'Empty on the Inside' have a tone and resonance that communicates in a new way for our band, he adds, chalking up this ability to the fact that the group have become better songwriters by spending so much time on the road and in the studio perfecting their craft. Success to me is creating something that's moving and fulfilling and I truly feel both of those things when I experience this album from start to finish.


    Converge have always been the type of band that never fit into one subculture and the band credit that to the fact that since their 2001 landmark album Jane Doe they haven't had any member changes. I think because it's been the same four people for the past five records we've been able to really get comfortable with each other and develop our own personality, Ballou explains. I don't listen to much music outside of what we've recorded so I think we're more influenced by our own history of playing together than what's currently happening in any scene.


    In other words when Ballou explains that Converge is the kind of band who have always existed between worlds, it's not just lip service. We don't have one typical type of listener but they tend to be intelligent people who can make up their own minds about things. That works to our advantage because they're willing to go on this journey with us and follow along with whatever twists and turns we take them on, he summarizes. Ultimately All We Love We Leave Behind may not be the most straightforward musical journey you'll embark on but it's one that you'll revisit over and over again to relive prior experiences and simultaneously create new ones. It all begins now.

    Hard Times And Nursery Rhymes

    Legendary Punk Rock Band's 1st Studio Record Since 2004



    Group Embraces Gritty, Soulful Currents on Can't-Miss Set



    Social Distortion's first new studio record in nearly six years, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes builds on singer Mike Ness twin footings, one in the haunted American landscapes of Hank Williams and the other in the raw swagger of Exile On Main Streetâ€era Rolling Stones. While these twin pillars have always been behind Social Distortions anthemic songs, on Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes they come roaring to the fore, in one of the hardest rocking, most soulful albums of Ness career.



    From opener California (Hustle and Flow), a song with enough attitude to redline a 40 Merc, to the dark rockin cover of Hank Williams' Alone and Forsaken, longtime fans will find the trademark punk roar they love. New fans, too, will be drawn to Ness maturing songwriting and vocals with an eye to his rock and roll legacy. Ness also produced Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes (his first time at the production helm).



    Cigar-puffing hoodlums, sleazy pimps, staggering winos, down-and-out blue-collar stiffs, on-the-run hustlers, wounded romantics, and spurned lovers are among the crowds that congregate on the street corners of Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, one of the most consistent, complete, soulful, and tunefully gritty records of Social Distortions career. The set reflects the groups progressive embrace of organ into arrangements. As such, subtle spiritual undercurrents coarse through several tunes.

    The High Country


    180-Gram White Vinyl In Gatefold Jacket


    Recorded At Chris Walla's (Death Cab For Cutie) Hall Of Justice Studio


    Engineered By Beau Sorenson (Bob Mould, Camera Obscura)


    A raw pop record infused with undeniable hooks, distortion pedals,
    passion, grit, and maybe a little insanity, The High Country is the first
    SSLYBY album to truly capture the power and energy the group
    exudes when performing live.


    SSLYBY recorded The High Country as a power trio consisting of
    Dickey, guitarist/vocalist Will Knauer, and bassist Tom Hembree, a
    founding member of the group who left after Broom, but returned to
    (as Dickey describes it) "stir things up in the best way possible and
    demand we play louder and faster."


    After a month spent demoing and practicing, the three musicians
    convened at Seattle's legendary Hall of Justice to record with engineer
    Beau Sorenson (Superchunk, Garbage). In many ways, The High
    Country is the record Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin has been
    building up to its entire career.

    This record marks a new and energetic phase of Julie's solo career with some of her most upbeat and inspiring songs. Direct and painfully honest, she lays it all out in her lyrics while also being almost the happiest woman in town, loving life and raising her kids. In addition to this new perspective, she showcases a thick distortion and melodic pop not heard since her days with indie heroes Eric's Trip in the 90s.

    The Action Thriller

The 4-conductor cable and gold-plated mini-plug bring the sparkle back to your audio or gaming system, tablet or phone. Play keyboard or guitar in your own head-space with the comfortable S-Cushions and durable embossed vinyl strap. The only distortion you'll hear will be from your stomp box.


    Grado has taken one of the world's most legendary headphones and made it even better. The SR80e has a new driver design, a new polymer to damp resonant distortion in the plastic housing, and a new cable from plug to driver connection. The way the SR80e's new driver and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations virtually eliminate transient distortions. This allows the signal flow over the new cable to reproduce sound that has improved tight control of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum, while supporting Grado's world renowned midrange. The SR80e will produce a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end.


    ...these are truly wonderful headphones, they've got the bass energy... ripping into heavy tracks with a gusto that eludes lesser rivals.

    4 Trk Mind (Discontinued)

    In this man are the traces of becoming. the display of veins strung into a multi-colored silhouette of a man born out of the electric dawn of the late seventies. Birthed from a songwriter father who struggled to unveil to his son the distortion world of drugs, song, and love, he discovered early that we are all in exile from one another. The boy grew up fascinated with the world of horror films, new wave pop, rap music, and graffiti. His spray paint fingers grazed dusty record sleeves, transformed a cheep home stereo into a mixer, and connected a young man with the current that changed his head. After years of journeying through sweat drenched undergrounds, and strobe light shadows, a man emerged. One who finds consolation in the fractal universe, one who has discovered love in a Technicolor death valley, and one who realized that those of the Diaspora of love can find community through song, he radiates wax for us. A man who is wired to the electric field of his past where he has loves and lost, and discovered the intervals of an off beat, kinetic world, he offers his songs as flesh, this music is an artifact of a man who shares his quantum of experience, who wants you to plug into his design, bridge the gap of our individual exiles, and discover the art of becoming electric through analog tape hiss.

    Millport

    This album represents three distinct historical trends that came together in the span of only 10 days during recording at Studios 606 and Big Bad Sound in April of 2016. The most obvious one is the musicians themselves. The rhythm section is composed of players from Social Distortion. 36 years ago, Bad Religion and Social Distortion shared a stage in Santa Ana, California. Well, it wasn't really a stage, it was an abandoned warehouse made into a punk concert/party place. That was my first concert, as the singer/songwriter in Bad Religion. Our styles over the years diverged, but one consistent element remained - our love of American Folk Rock and Old-Time music continued to grow.


    The second root apparent on this album is that of the sound and musicianship itself. No mere hacks, these musicians are masters. Vintage wood, having been crafted into musical instruments, produces the sound of history when played by virtuosos such as those collected here. An old guitar, a vintage fiddle, drums and bass, clawhammer banjo, and a combo of electric guitar and tubed amplifier, create a sound that can only be described as classic. When you add the beautiful harmonies of these most excellent background singers, there is no doubt that this music comes from a deep-rooted expression of American experience.


    The final historical root is a personal one. The people who introduced me to Old-Time music are now old-timers themselves. My family roots go back to Indiana and Wisconsin. The Indiana folks sang a-Capella in the old country chapel at my Grandma's funeral. Her children taught me to sing and the songs they chose came from the 30s, 40s, 50s, and of course the folk revival tunes of the 1960s. This was the sound I brought forth to my own band starting in the 1980s. It's the only kind of lyrical style I know. And hopefully, this album will add another strong branch to my music. Thank you all for continuing to water the tree.

    Every March 17 on St. Patrick's Day, New York City merely paints a green line down the center of its Fifth Avenue parade route-a stunt easily pulled off by any city-but only Chicago dyes an entire river the perfect shade of emerald green to honor Irish culture. Why green? Thanks to Ireland's lush vegetation, the island is often lovingly referred to as the Emerald Isle. To the Irish, a green display of pride is not to be taken lightly. In the United States, even those of non-Irish descent know to wear green clothing on St. Patrick's Day, or else be playfully pinched by an Irish friend or colleague! But it's one thing to don a green shirt or tie, another thing altogether to transform a 156-mile long river. Chicago's Stephen M. Bailey, the man who orchestrated the transformation, boasted that he'd turn the River Chicago into the River Shannon (Ireland's longest) for a day, and, eventually, he did.


    There was no specific recipe for successfully dyeing a river. A bit of trial and error was required. Initially, over 100 pounds of dye was used, and the river stayed green for a week! In the second year, 50 pounds of dye kept the river green for three full days. In the third year, it was found that using 25 pounds of dye would turn the river green for a single day. Two years later, environmental concerns led to the formation of a new vegetable-based dye that produces a perfect sea of green and lasts for four or five hours-40 pounds of the stuff does the trick. Following suit across the nation, major canals, minor creeks, city blocks, drinking fountains, and even the Presidential Fountain at the White House are dyed green for St. Patrick's Day-all thanks to the wonderful example set in Chicago.


    SOLID LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC) CONDUCTORS: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. Chicago's solid Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding "loss" without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.


    NITROGEN-INJECTED HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION: Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest's video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed-PE, it is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets. 'Hard' foam is used because the stiffness of the material allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same relationship with each other along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent.


    METAL-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS): 100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System. Noise-Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.


    DOUBLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY: Two ideal audio conductors separate from the cable's shield. Not only does this prevent the shield from being used as an inferior audio path, but it further optimizes sound quality by only grounding the shield at one end, reducing system ground-plane modulation.


    COLD-WELDED GOLD-PLATED PLUGS: This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability.

    AudioQuest NightHawk Carbon Headphones


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Offering a unique combination of unsurpassed comfort,
    state-of-the-art design, and naturally beautiful sound,
    AudioQuest's first headphone, NightHawk, has been
    lovingly featured in the pages of magazines and websites
    as far-reaching as Stereophile, Rolling Stone, CNET, Wired,
    Head-Fi, Digital Trends, The Verge, and many more. This
    is evidence of the intensifying convergence between the
    high-fidelity and high-technology worlds, and testament
    to NightHawk's uncanny ability to captivate and inspire a
    diverse audience of thinkers, builders, engineers, and, of
    course, music lovers.


    While NightHawk's many innovative design elements-
    Liquid Wood earcups, biomimetic sound-diffusing grilles,
    and high-performance solid-conductor cable, to name just
    a few-have impressed listeners worldwide, many have
    expressed interest in different paint finishes, more versatile
    cables, and closed-back designs.


    AudioQuest takes the first of many steps toward satisfying
    those interests with two new around-the-ear models:
    NightHawk Carbon and NightOwl Carbon.


    NightHawk Carbon is a more sophisticated,
    more mature version of the original. It boasts all of the
    same exciting refinements found in NightOwl-improved
    performance, greater comfort, two pairs of earpads, a far
    more durable cable with mic and smartphone controls,
    enhanced look and feel -all while
    retaining its predecessor's remarkably low distortion and
    fatigue-free sound.


    Acoustic Refinements


    • Modified internal parts: Tighter tolerances reduce air
      leakage for improved airflow and lower distortion
    • Two sets of earpads: Protein Leather Boost Pads seal
      tighter for better isolation and slightly enhanced treble
      clarity; Microsuede Pads breathe freer for greater comfort
      and slightly reduced bass impact
    • Improved plugs: High-purity Tellurium Copper (TeCu)
      base metal for smoother surface, higher plating quality,
      better mating contact, and, consequently, less noise


    Ergonomic Refinements


    • Improved headpad: Genuine leather headpad with
      stitched detailing for enhanced comfort, more luxurious
      look and feel
    • Improved cable: Shorter (4.25ft) length for easier use
      at the desktop or with mobile devices; flexible, nonbraided
      jacket increases durability, eliminates kinking,
      minimizes microphonics; robustly engineered and
      rigorously tested strain relief further increases durability;
      discrete microphone and smartphone controls enable
      phone calls and playback functions (Play, Pause, Skip)
      without compromising sound quality


    Cosmetic Refinements


    • Luxurious finish: Porsche Carbon Grey Metallic highgloss
      paint meticulously applied via multistage process
    • Improved inner presentation: Includes microfiber
      pouches for headphones and accessories for safer,
      simpler travel


    Of course, all of the advanced design elements that
    made the original NightHawk such a success are carried
    over into the improved models. NightHawk Carbon and
    NightOwl Carbon share their predecessor's pistonic
    drivers with biocellulose diaphragms, compliant rubber
    surrounds, and true voice-coil formers. The patented splitgap
    motor remains unsurpassed in its ability to reduce
    intermodulation distortion. The earcups are fabricated
    from the same revolutionary Liquid Wood material, which
    affords acoustically optimized support beams and carefully
    applied damping. The patent-pending suspension system
    allows the earcups to move freely, accommodating heads
    of almost any shape or size, while effectively decoupling
    the earcups to counteract resonances.


    Thus, NightHawk's exceedingly low distortion, unrivaled
    comfort, and naturally detailed sound have been
    enhanced in every meaningful way. With the new semiopen
    NightHawk Carbon and closed-back NightOwl
    Carbon headphones, you can listen longer, later, and with
    greater pleasure, enjoying even deeper immersion in your
    favorite music, movies, videos, and games.

    The Only Place

    The Only Place is the follow-up to Best Coast's acclaimed 2010 album Crazy For You and it finds the proudly Southern California duo of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno maturing in both their sound and perspective. While Crazy For You was a nostalgic tribute to teenage feelings, this new album finds front woman Cosentino transitioning into adulthood, with the feeling of uncertainty and self-doubt at the emotional center of the album. The Only Place also features a love song to her home state of California in the title track. All encompassed in the memorable album cover, derived from a 1913 sheet music illustration paying homage to the golden state.


    As with all of Best Coast's previous recordings, on The Only Place, Cosentino handles all songwriting lyrics, vocals and rhythm guitar, while multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno plays lead guitar, bass and drums. What's new this time is their decision to work with producer and composer Jon Brion. A revered figure in the music world, Brion has collaborated with artists like Fiona Apple and Kanye West and created scores for such films as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Punch-Drunk Love.


    Recorded at Capitol Records' famed Studio B, The Only Place features a cleaner and richer sound than other Best Coast releases. Many of the songs' arrangements are detailed with subtle percussion and unexpected instrumentation. Intricate but never overworked, the biggest change from previous releases is how it showcases Cosentino's voice, this time letting it ring clear, unhidden by distortion and reverb.

    Outsideinside

    Blue Cheer looms large in the annals of hard rock, laying down the sonic foundations of heavy metal, and serving as a crucial influence on the birth of punk, grunge and stoner rock. While the rest of the rock world was mellowing out and embracing the spirit of the Summer of Love, the seminal San Francisco power trio was churning out ballsy blues-rock anthems whose fuzz-heavy, adrenaline-charged intensity helped to alter the course of contemporary music.


    Blue Cheers second album, Outsideinside, fully matches its predecessors primal power. The last Blue Cheer release to feature the beloved lineup of Stephens, Peterson and Whaley, Outsideinside is a bracing orgy of volume, distortion and aggression, with such highlights as Just a Little Bit, Come and Get It, the instrumental Magnolia Caboose Babyfinger and the bands distinctive take on the Rolling Stones Satisfaction. Like its predecessor, Outsideinside has been out of print on vinyl for decades and has long been prized by collectors.

    Surfacing


    200-Gram Gatefold Two LPs Cut At 45 Rpm


    Mastered By Bernie Grundman From The Original Analog Tapes


    Award-Winning Album Includes The Hits "Angel," "Adia" And
    "Building A Mystery"


    Three of Sarah McLachlan's biggest pop hits mark her fourth studio
    album Surfacing. Released in July 1997, just as the first Lilith Fair tour hit
    the road, McLachlan benefitted enormously from the timing. Her face
    was on the cover of magazines across America and Canada; Surfacing
    reached No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 - a remarkable feat considering
    that its predecessor, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, peaked at No. 50.
    Now, hear Surfacing on its definitive vinyl version - two 200-gram
    LPs cut at 45 RPM by legendary mastering engineer Bernie Grundman
    from the original analog tapes. The premium LPs plated and pressed
    by Gary Salstrom and the crew at Quality Record Pressings are paired
    with a deluxe gatefold Stoughton Printing tip-on jacket. The 45 RPM
    pressing gives you four sides with a reduction in groove curvature and
    decreased distortion as your cartridge nears the center of the record.
    That's a major sonic advantage!


    There's the requisite number of gorgeously melodic and deeply heartfelt
    songs here, writes reviewer Jeff Bateman - the addictive "Sweet
    Surrender," the Hollywood-style ballad "I Love You," the sad, profound
    "Angel," the flat-out spectacular "Witness." "Adia" and "Angel" were Top
    5 hits; "Building a Mystery" hit the Top 15 and "Sweet Surrender" became
    a Top 30 hit.


    The album won four Juno Awards including for Album of the Year.
    "Building a Mystery" was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Female
    Pop Vocal Performance, while the instrumental-only song "Last Dance"
    won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance.
    McLachlan's bittersweet album proves again that what she and producer
    Pierre Marchand release is cut from the finest of cloth. The Analogue
    Productions/QRP pressing reissue treatment delivers sonics and luxury
    packaging second to none for discerning collectors

    Your Music is More


    Everyone loves a thumping bass and kick-drum, but not at the expense of everything else. The Grado SR60e is your entry to the world of full spectrum audio. You'll actually hear notes you never knew were there. Perhaps your audiophile friends have fueled a desire for the legendary Grado sound but you thought it was out of reach. Try a pair of our affordable open-back headphones and experience fuller, more realistic sound. Club-footed imports can't match the sonic enlightenment from Brooklyn, USA.


    Grado has taken one of the world's most legendary headphones and made it even better. The SR60e has a new driver design, a new polymer to better damp resonant distortion in the plastic housing, and a new cable from plug to driver connection. The way the SR60e's new driver and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations virtually eliminate transient distortions. This allows the signal flow over the new cable to reproduce sound that has tight control of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum, while supporting Grado's world renowned midrange. The SR60e will produce a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end.


    Frequently described as the gateway to audiophile sound, the Grado SR60 headphones hold the title of best full-size open headphones for less than $100 - many models that cost twice as much don't sound as good. The retro-looking SR60 headphones have punchy but natural sound and will floor most first-time listeners.

    - Macworld


    You'll be hard pressed to find a better pair of headphones for the money than the Grado SR60. The upper mids/highs reveal excellent detail, and the bass is solid too. I bought a pair about 8 years ago and I swear the price was the same as it is today. Good price, simple looks, practical and sophisticated where it counts: in the sound.

    AmpsandSound Products Are Handmade In Small Batches and Go Through Extensive Quality Control


    The name Agartha used to describe a city in the center of the world. The ampsandsound Agartha brings the legendary 300b to personal audio. They chose the 300b for its long history as the king of triodes. Combining a single gain stage, zero feedback and careful attention to grounding techniques they are able to use a 300b with headphones without hum or noise. For those with headphone, horns or single driver speakers who are seeking audio nirvana, the Agartha is built with exacting attention to parts selection and implementation.


    The Agartha tube amp pairs a 6SL7 tube for front end with SS rectification enabling great transient peeks, faster/livelier presentation and ultra-quite operation. The Agartha uses direct-heated triodes with zero feedback providing the classic single-ended sound so widely loved.


    Typical of all ampsandsound amplifiers, the power supply is massive. This combined with a generous choke yields our trademark low noise; less than 3mv at idle, and stable output of 5 watts RMS into an 8ohm load and 1watt into a 32ohm headphone. Frequency response is 12hz to 30hz at 1 watts, 1-db. Output iron has been carefully selected to reduce distortion and increase frequency response. And of course we also use our 5% capacitors and 2% resistors.


    The motivation of the Agartha is to provide access to the wide availability of NOS tubes and give the warm mid-range bloom that is at the heart of single-ended direct-heated triode designs. Tube set included.
