you know… I love this man and am forever in his debt.  He’s made laboratory grade audio equipment available to music / broadcast industry for many years and his standards and  interests have grown since his beginning.  Truly a childlike interest in pushing the boundaries of the craft he practices. He applies raw physics to sound and you should watch this as a whole to appreciate the brilliance of his passion and dedication.  

I’m glad someone as enthusiastic as Hutch Hutchison is at his side absorbing it all. (though he left RND)

Long live limitless analog technology!
Long live the passionate, curious and boundary pushing!
Long live Rupert Neve

Sound guy xmas idea #25 – New drill with USB charger

I love DeWalt tools.  My drill has built many studios and is still going extremely strong!  It is however very bulky for the work I do now.  DeWalt (those clever guys) sent an email about their new 20V XR that looked great.  One of the newest accessories is the USB charger attachment.  I think it would come in handy all the time on a job site. It’s unfortunate that the DeWalt tools are “Steal me yellow”, it’s gold to a thief… I’ve lost a few piecesDCD995M2_K1 DCD995M2_1Screen Shot 2013-12-13 at 8.11.41 AM DCB090_A1
