Five great audio blogs to read

by Nyal Mellor March 25, 2011

This blog post is all about how to keep up to date with what is happening in the wonderful world of two channel audio, home theater and acoustics. One of the best ways I have found is to subscribe via an RSS reader such as Google Reader to industry blogs. The best thing about RSS is that you don't have to go to the actual website to see if there is any new content. With RSS the content is sent to your reader, typically in the form of a summary. You can then skim the summary and if it seems interesting click through the link on your RSS reader to visit the actual website where the item was posted.

Five of the blog sites I read on a regular basis are:

  1. Hi-Fi Zine. A semi-regular newszine, kind of like a magazine but on the internet. Articles on many topics, from music and equipment reviews to DIY how-tos to technical articles are pubished.
  2. Audio Musings by Sean Olive. Sean is the head of R&D at Harman International, the parent company of JBL, Mark Levinson, Revel and Harman Kardon. Posts are typically related to the science of audio perception (psychoacoustics).
  3. Ultimate AV Mag. Home Theater news and reviews, mainly from Scott Wilkinson, who also hosts an excellent and fully recommended weekly blog called Home Theater Geeks.
  4. Computer Audiophile. A good site to keep appraised of the latest happenings in computer audio. I'm a big proponent of computer audio and was one of the early adoptors - I've had a music server for 5 or 6 years now.
  5. See below for my recent addition on the Digital Audio blog!

The other good news source is the Daily Audiophile, which is an aggregator of RSS feeds from around 20 or so other sites. Personally I think it is easier to just subscribe to the RSS feeds of the websites you are interested in, since the format of the Daily Audiophile makes it easy to miss good news items.

Which audio sites do you visit on a regular basis? Please add a comment below!
