How many times has this happened to you? You ask your car to phone Peggy, and instead it orders a pizza? Or maybe you ask for directions to Rochester and instead it changes your radio station? How come car voice systems can’t work as well as all the other voice systems we use? Ford asked the same question, and Alexa answered the call.

Congratulations on waking up from that 10-year coma. Big yawn. While you were sleeping, wireless in-ear headphones became a thing. Actually, they are now a big thing. The HD1 joins Sennheiser’s Momentum lineup as one of the newest offerings.

Low, flat rectangular black boxes with a few buttons and displays. Boring. You need to add a little buzz to your stereo shelf. For example, how about a Beehive? If you’re looking for a tube-driven headphone amplifier and DAC, this might be the hive for you.

High-Res Audio is alive and well, thank you very much. New hardware is arriving, as well as new high-res streaming services. Case in point, regarding the former, Pioneer showed the XDP-300R, its newest portable audio player. It joins the previous XDP-100R player but does not replace it.
