2012 T.H.E. Show Newport Beach Report
The second annual Southern California version of T.H.E (The Home Entertainment) Show was a major success by all accounts. T.H.E. Show also takes place in Las Vegas in January during CES. Last year, many in the high-end audio world were stunned at the overwhelming response to the first event, with 6000 attendees and hundreds of exhibitors.

AVRev's CES 2012 Post-Show Wrap Up
Las Vegas was yet again host to CES, where hundreds of industry folks, journalists, and just plain revelers converged to see the latest trends in technology, communications, entertainment, and lifestyle products.  Every major manufacturer and media company was exhibiting, and there were wonders to behold. Aside from the massive Las Vegas convention center, the show was spread across half a dozen hotels as well. Trying to cover it all is an exercise in futility. I focused my attention on high end audio, and even then I fell short of seeing every exhibit. I spent most of my time in the Venetian, where the bulk of high performance audio products were displayed. There was everything from budget minded micro systems to state of the art, over the top, large scale rigs. There were many new products in the digital ...

Comparing Streaming Services: a Guide to Spoitfy, Rdio, Turntable.fm, and Pandora
It's been over a decade since Napster changed the music industry forever.  Or rather, since broadband Internet, faster computers, ever growing hard drive sizes, and new compression algorithms (like the mp3) allowed every day folks to share music around the world almost instantly.  In the years that followed, a little computer company called Apple -- maybe you've heard of it? -- became the world's largest music distributor, and there's an entire generation of new music lovers who have never purchased a physical copy of an album.  And with newer streaming services, some people may elect never to purchase music again; instead choosing to rent access to a library for a monthly fee.Since Swedish streaming service, Spotify, recently debut here in the United States (after signing up over 10 million users in Europe), I thought it would be fun to do ...

iTunes Moves into the Cloud
After many months of speculation, Steve Jobs announced that iTunes would be finally utilizing cloud storage upon the release of iOS5 in the Fall of 2011.  The new service, aptly called iCloud, stores music, video, books, apps and photos as well as syncs them over all your devices (non-Apple devices included and up to 10).  For instance, if you purchased a new album on your iPhone, it would automatically be synced to your PC & iPad the next time they are connected to the Internet.  The completely free iCloud service replaces MobileMe, a similar concept that Apple attempted to charge a yearly fee of $99.   Apple is also rolling out iTunes Match.  Likely coming from their recent acquisition of LaLa, iTunes Match will take all the songs that you have downloaded from other sources over the years and match them ...
