Dusty in Memphis

In a moment of weakness I purchased Dusty in Memphis on vinyl yesterday, from Diverse Vinyl at the hi-fi show at the Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge Surrey. Very pleasant hotel and very small show improved significantly by a few purveyors of records.

Dusty in Memphis is a double 45rpm reissue from Analogue Productions it was originally on Atlantic.  It’s a fabulous album musically and also great sound quality.

More information here and here and here.

It includes the classics: Just a little Lovin’, Son of a Preacher Man and Breakfast in Bed and more.

Damn expensive but worth it.

New Neat Acoustics IOTA Loudspeaker

The IOTA delivers a spectacular audio performance from an almost impossibly small cabinet. It is specifically intended for use very close to walls, or in locations such as bookshelves and desktops, where even a regular size compact/bookshelf design may be too large.

The Neat IOTA is now shipping following a hugely successful preview at the Manchester Sound and Vision Show in November and an equally successful launch at the Sound and Vision Show Bristol in February.
