DVD Audio takes another leap forward as Technics has just announced the release of the first DVD-Audio/Video player, the DVD-A10.

In honor of MGM's Sept 12 release of the band's now infamous rockumentary, "This is Spinal Tap," on DVD and VHS, Listen.com, Rolling Stone and Spinal Tap have launched a search for a new skinsman. Entrants can apply at Listen.com by submitting a 50-word essay on why they should be the new drummer and send in a photo or video of themselves dressed in Spinal Tap garb, preferably spandex and/or leather. The contest will be judged by Spinal Tap's Derek Smalls, Rolling Stone editor David Wild and Listen.com editor Jon Pruett. The winner will receive a trip to Hollywood for the exclusive re-release party at the House of Blues, a meeting with the band, a drum kit, and VHS and DVD copies of the re-mastered movie "This is Spinal Tap".
