    ProAc Response D2R loudspeaker

    Between the mid-1980s and late 2000s, Stereophile published 14 reviews of loudspeakers from England’s ProAc Limited. First came Dick Olsher’s review of the ProAc Tablette in 1984. The latest—until now—was in 2010, when John Marks wrote about the ProAc Response D Two. Then, in 2016, came the passing of US ProAc distributor Richard Gerberg, of Modern Audio Consultants, and for some time the company’s products weren’t available stateside. “We lost our importer in the USA a few years ago, and it took a little while to find a replacement,” wrote ProAc’s founder, CEO, and head designer, Stewart Tyler, in an email. “It takes time to reestablish your place in the…

    Domenicali calls on Alonso to help Sainz move to Ferrari

    Former Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali has called on Fernando Alonso to help compatriot and former protege Carlos Sainz with his forthcoming move to Maranello. Sainz has been signed by Ferrari to replace Sebastian Vettel in 2021. Meanwhile Sainz’ vacant seat at McLaren will be taken over by Daniel Ricciardo, leaving a tempting opening at Renault that Alonso himself has been strongly linked to in recent days. But Domenicali feels that Alonso – a former Ferrari driver himself – would do better to use his experience to help Sainz prepare to face off against the formidable challenge of future team mate Charles Leclerc. Renault challenge not what Alonso is looking…

    Kent State Massacre Remembered By Survivor 50 Years Later

    KENT, OH — It has now been 50 years since the date some have said the Vietnam War came home. It was May 4, 1970 when four students at Kent State University were shot and killed by members of the Ohio National Guard during a protest of the war on campus. “We were gathering in the center of the campus by the student union building and chanting ‘1, 2, 3, 4 we don’t want your f***ing war,'” remembers Steve English, who was a junior theater major at Kent State that year. English was part of a number of groups on campus protesting both the war and the National Guard’s presence…

    Une étude suggère que le Covid-19 ne serait pas sexuellement transmissible

    Une étude américano-chinoise a testé des échantillons de sperme de patients chinois touchés par le Covid-19 afin d’évaluer les risques de transmission du virus lors des rapports sexuels. Les résultats de cette étude préliminaire ne suggèrent pas de présence du SARS-CoV-2 dans le sperme et les testicules des patients. Mais le nombre trop faible de participants ne permet pas, du moins pour l’instant, d’écarter ce type de risques avec certitude. Malgré le taux d’information croissante sur le Covid-19, de nombreuses questions subsistent. Si on sait que le virus se transmet par les voies respiratoires, en contact direct avec d’autres individus ou par le biais d’objets contaminés, certaines interrogations demeurent sur…
