Audio Drama on the web

AudioTheatreFilter: I was an avid listener of's Seeing Ear Theatre, but the site has been stagnant for years and I've finally decided it's time to move on. So what's out there in online radio/audio drama? [more inside]

Narrow sound?

Recently I read an article about narrow-band sound and the attempt to develop it. For example, a siren from an ambulance on the street would clear the streets, but wouldn't wake people in their homes because they wouldn't hear it. I can't find the article and Google's no help. I'm tempted to say I read it on one of Marshall Brain's sites, but searching there was fruitless as well. Can someone find it?

Home Stereo of the Future?

It's been many years since I've bought any home audio equipment and I'm now thinking of buying a new set of audio components for my home livingroom. So here's my question - I no longer use CD's, as all of my music is digital. I listen to internet radio all the time on my computer. I have an iPod. It seems that most of the audio components in Best Buy are still rooted in the past. What would you suggest I buy to create the "home stereo the future" that would leverage all of the new technologies that have come out in the past couple of years. What should my home audio set up look like? Any and all suggestions would be welcomed! Thanks, Marc

Recording sounds played through the speaker in OS X

I'm wondering what applications (preferably free) I would use in OS X 10.4 if I want to grab and record audio on its way to my computer's speakers. A band I like has part of a song available through a flash player on their site, but I don't want to have to be online to hear it all the time. I tried playing it through the speakers and recording that, but the quality was terrible -- is there a way to record the sound directly?

How to get an AVI file burnt to DVD with proper audio sync?

Ok, my google-fu has failed me. I'm trying to find a simple software program that will allow me to take an AVI file (or multiple AVI files - TV shows, mostly) and burn them to a DVD-R while still having the audio sync up properly. I've tried a couple of programs, and for some reason, the audio ends up being out of sync toward the end, although it's just fine at the beginning.

I don't want mpga's, I want mp3's!

What the heck is an mpga and why is my computer saving music files in that format? I have an iBook G4 and about a week ago, when I downloaded music from audioblogs it started saving the files as mpga's, which won't open in iTunes. If I manually change them to mp3's, they open in iTunes, but are 0:00 long. I suspect it might have something to do with having downloaded RealPlayer (which I've since uninstalled), but I haven't been able to fix this or find any useful info on Mac help forums.

Why do audio cassettes go odd?

I commute and run to books on tape. Every so often, I will get a spate of too fast, high pitched Alvin Chipmunk playback. Flip the tape to side B at the same point- no problem. Flip it back- Alvin. Change tape player- same thing, so it seems not to be the machines. At worst this can go on for an entire side. A solution would be welcome (slapping tape firmly does not help, nor does rewinding), but mostly I'm wondering, what gives here?

What speakers should I spend $10,000 on?

HomeTheaterFilter: My friend currently owns a Rotel surround receiver and DVD player and six B&W 600 series speakers. He wants to upgrade speakers, and has budgeted $8,000-10,000 to do so. Should he, or is there another part of the system that needs upgrading more urgently? And if speakers are the way to go - keeping in mind that high-end home theater can be highly subjective - what should he get?

Loudspeakers on glass?

Hi all, on Regent St in Central London there are a number of shops that have sound eminating directly (it appears) from the window panes!
