after 3 months of searching, we have finally found the elusive jazz vocalist for jz8, our chinese pop/jazz duo! she is a veteran singer with 20 years of singing behind her. not only she sounds sophisticated; she looks sophisticated as well! unlike 2v1g, jz8 will take on a more mature repertoire, reviving some chinese oldies from as far back as the 70's. we are very excited about this project!
 barring any unforseen circumstances, we would be launching two albums at next year's KLIAV show. the two albums are respectively 2v1g's long-awaited 2nd album and jz8's debut album. there will be live performances by 2v1g and jz8 like what shanghai bookstore did for the chinese singers (lily chen) a couple of years ago.
 my preamp has been sent for repair so there won't be any review for the next few weeks. the ps audio vs furutech duel has to be postponed to next month. preliminary feedback from hifi kaki - who helped me to cook the furutech - has been great so we are really eager to do the friendly shoot-out as soon as possible.
 master ken is reviewing the black timber platform (from c&o enterprise) for his meridian cdp. this platform is made of walnut entirely and is 3" thick. i will post a photo of it soon.
 the distributor for MIT cables has changed hands. absolute hifi is the new distributor now and hi-way laser is its dealer.
