At the bottom end of the Soul by Ludacris headphone line is the SL100. I was impressed by the more expensive SL150, and hopeful for another good showing here.

Um ... didn't quite work out.

After spending time with the Beats by Dre Solo HD (high definition or heavily distorted, I'm not sure) it was a real pleasure to acquaint myself with the Soul by Ludacris SL150.

Surprisingly satisfying!

I've never understood why the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air and Bose iPod SoundDock 10 iPod speakers are so popular. Sure, they sound acceptably good, but for that kind of money (around $600) you could buy a nice set of stereo speakers and an integrated amp and wind up with much better sound. For about a third the price of the B & W and Bose the Fluance FiSDK500 ($200) is a serious contender. It's by far the best sounding iPod speaker I've heard for anywhere near its price.

October has come and gone ... way too fast. CanJam at RMAF was fun, but you've read about that by now. Let's see what else happened in the lab.

That's a wrap! A few closing comments, and we're done.

In principle, nobody is indispensable. In practice, some are. For CanJam at RMAF, that indispensable individual is John Purtill. Or JPnums, if you prefer.

There's simply no doubt the big news of the show was the amazing new Audez'e LCD-3. Spectacular!

Sisyphus would be proud. Jerry Harvey has been pushing this bolder up hill for a long, long time. I'm glad to say it looks like it's over the top ... and it sounds like it's over-the-top good, too.

I spent almost two decades trying to get cross-feed right. The Phonitor pulls it off.

Though style comes first for Val Kolton, he knows what headphones are for. These cans beat like mad.
