When They Was Fab: Electric Arguments About the Beatles

2019.41 Here Comes the Sun (Rear Speakers) — The Beatles, Ringo Starr, Life in Surround.

October 14, 2019

This week - home audio reproduction and The Beatles.       Over the years, The Beatles have given us their music in many different styles.    Without going into the multitudes of physical media we can count: mono, stereo, PCM Stereo, DTS, surround, 5.1, 7.1 and now Dolby Atmos.    What does all this mean?     I take the time out to explain (to the best of my knowledge!) and highlight some of the goodies to be found in "the other speakers" from the ATMOS and Surround mixes of Abbey Road.      The show closes with Ringo's new cover of "Grow Old With Me" and a bit of audio technology from the days of yore.   The Beatles and "Out of Phase Stereo" (OOPS) through the years, and a brand new, tremendous fan-made "Real Love" mix!
