Yes, most of those pics are like a good friend not seen for ages. Thanks ! I am signing OFF; the windjammers for mics for tomorrow's big push have been delayed in the mail, and I will have to work overnight - if required. Will be back Sunday - after I get some sleep and rest. This will be no ordinary run of the mill recording ...
No, memory from well before the internet age - good ol' audio press. But I will try to excavate some - given time.
TBH - that is about the same as trying to cram a crash course on women.  One at a time ... - and it takes time. Classics can be - and usually is - a lifelong journey, where path is more interesting than the final destination - if there were such a thing in music. What is one's persons' music to  his/hersears, can be another's poison - and vice versa. It is totally unlike "which browser runs best on OS such and such" type of question - no single answer that would satisfy...
TBH - no.
Anything that is miked with minimalist microphone techniques - just as I would suggest for the electrostatics. This is the end of my posts on HE-1Ks in Best classical ... - for that, there are other threads dedicated to this topic.
In May, I did not hear aberrations you cited. I listened exclusively to my own master recordings ( had my modified Korg MR-1000 with a chock full HDD and used it for ALL but few listenings - that did not provide for anything that was not provided by the exhibitor - and these were mostly avoided ). My concerns about the reliability also mimic yours - only time can tell. Hope for the best !!!
Military would MUCH sooner use infra - rather than ultrasonic weapons.  Whales, who can actually produce SPLs in the range of 150 dB+, can communicate with extremely low frequencies over distances beyond 40.000 km - because the sound has to propagate trough the water, has to go "around" the continents ( and islands) - and because low frequencies sustain the minimum loss of SPL across the distance. Shoot me with an ultrasonic shooter - by raising a common book or similar...
Interesting - JVC of all people; who gave the world quadrophonic CD-4 analog record, which requires at least 45 kHz at "flat" response in order to read the carrier for demodulator - and who made one of the best phono cartridges ever - JVC X-1 .  Which is DAMN flat to 50 kHz and slightly beyond - and proved to be superior to "stereo only" carts on normal stereo material - among many others that followed suit. I regard JVC very highly - they did contribute immensely to...
Sure - I did post the Boyk  link several times in the past, I merely stated the instrument that is relatively widespread and known to general audience and can be listened to on relatively regular intervals in any given series of classical music concerts. No need to travel to Bali ( or few places that have a true gamelan in their inventory). Muted trumpet and some other instruments can go beyond 100 kHz - but as VERY few microphones and recorders can reach that high (...
Agreed. But simply could not resist - because if not important in classical music, where else could sound quality be important ? There are quite few threads about HE-1000 on head-fi already - if so inclined, please go over there. I merely wanted to stress the importance of cans of this merit to the listeners of classical music.
