Comrades, Drain the polluted swamp of audiophile media and opinion and discover,  glistening like a diamond in the mud, this wonderful little gem of a podcast .  And it's from some of our mo

As we all look for new ways to entertain and be entertained, "three sad bastards" have quite literally banded together to launch a light-hearted hi-fi focused podcast.   Thought this worthy

@Sir ding-a-ding-a-ling. How about I come on as occasional guest? 3 sad bastards and a real bastard.    



A freshly minted episode is now available: enjoy ?

 

One of the 3 Sad Bastards has started a project to build to build a pair of loudspeakers. How hard could it be, right? Listen to the other Sad Bastards rip into SB1's naiveté, rose-coloured, wishful thinking belief that making your own loudspeakers could rival commercial quality.....,

If you've ever considered making your own speakers, join us to see how we tackle the problem in our unique style of ignorance and discovery, laughing all the way...

We’ve been busy... two new episodes that will almost certainly throw some rocks through the glasshouse windows of the hifi world and show which emperors have no clothes:

 

Season 2: Episode 3. 
Reviews suck!

The 3 Sad Bastards take a pair of pliers and blowtorches to the fine art of audiophile hifi reviews.
Superlatives are used LIBERALLY, and this episode is without doubt the best and most awesome 3SB episode of ALL TIME.

 

Season 2: Episode 4;

HiFi Porn

If you protect your hifi browser history like the last chocolate biscuit in a zombie apocalypse, then this is the episode you have been waiting for - a safe place where the obsessed and afflicted can share their love of hifi.

Right you lot, stop gawping at the latest world leader to catch Covid, we have some real news!

 

Yes, a new 3SB episode: S02E05: Cable Clowns, or Wizards? 

 

if there’s one aspect of audio hifi that divides the audio world it’s cables! If you believe that cables make a difference, are you a hifi wizard, or a cable clown?

 

Listen in as two of the Sad Bastards goad each other with their fact based approach (i.e. unsubstantiated ambit claims) and almost come to fisty-cuffs. In fact SB3 had to tie SB2 and SB1 virtually up with the (inferior) kettle-cord that came with his amplifier to keep the show moving along.

This is the one I've been waiting for.  Hopefully there is much swearing, laughter and maybe a degree of intoxication involved.

I like to have a beer and listen to your show, its too early in the morning for that but in a few hours the moral legalities will pass by noon and I will sit and enjoy a beer and a listen.  I have to catch up on the HiFi Porn episode too.

 

... A meme my wife thinks is (sadly) true and hilarious...

Yeah it's been posted here before.  But I suggest that with a wife as hot as that ... the guy doesn't need to look at porn.

The caption is wrong, she's listened to the  latest episode about cables and is annoyed that her husband thinks they make no difference

Exciting news...

As you no are doubt aware (from listening avidly to Season Two) we’ve sent out a few invitations for guests to appear on our show. Somewhat surprisingly someone actually said “yes”
 

In our next episode we will be joined by one of the great innovators in the world of hifi. Stand by....

I listened to the cable debate and still wonder why people only use their ears to qualify a way of listening. Sight is important to me and I use this sense to listen as well.

Over the decades of selling and demoing kit, I have heard and seen the difference with various cable. This doesnt mean that I run out and buy the latest and most expensive cable (Hell, my whole system only cost around 5-6 k), check my interconnects and speaker cable,) but I respect people who can hear the difference and spend the money.

Yes, and the Beatles hated each other after they made Abbey Rd.   It’s about the art. ?

 

PS the episode was terrific.

Just got through this episode this morning.  Good Stuff.

Keep the debate going and roll out of cables into burn in!  Equally polarising

Hot off the press.. we have two freshly minted episodes full of the usual meaningless banter that you know and love.

Well, actually the first one is the usual drivel but the second is rather informative for a change. Nothing to do with any of the 3 Sad Bastards, but entirely due to our special guest… read on...

 

Episode 6: The Rise of the Valves:

Why are valves (vacuum tubes) still being used in hifi audio equipment? The 3 Sad Bastards decompose the arguments (and have a few of their own along the way) as to the intrinsic characteristics of valves and why valve audio equipment is seeing a resurgence in the market.

 

For anyone that's wondered what all the valve fuss is about, why some audiophiles prefer amplifiers that can triple up as incandescent bulbs,  heaters or even toast your crumpet, join in and find a voice to vent your inner valve audio obsession.

 

Episode 7: For the Love of Sanders!:

Special Guest Edition! The 3 Sad Bastards are joined by Roger Sanders from Sanders Audio Systems in this first ever episode where someone has been brave enough to come on and engage in witty, respectful and engaging repartee!

The 3 Sad Bastards are schooled by one of the audio industry great thinkers and innovators - listen in as Roger articulates his philosophy on amplifiers, speakers and hifi in general!

I fessed up to having a valve amplifier and had to duck for cover. Roger is a gentleman, no it was from the other Sad Bastards and their valve bias. 
 

I thought Trevor would be on my side (valves) but he is a traitor to the vacuum tube cause.

Sanders has no allegiance to any particular style of amp, valve solid state, whatever. 
He has a set of objectives that he wants to achieve and the best way for him to do this is with solid state. 

Speak for yourself :) In the Rise of Valves episode I would have appreciated more support against SB2. Instead you ganged up on the Valve Bastard. Humph!

SB2 is Sad Bastard #2, aka John. Trevor is SB3 and I’m SB1. 
 

in the podcast at least!

Combined SB1/2/3 have probably a combined 100 years of audiophilia compared to Sander's meagre 40 years of experience.

 

How can anyone seriously take the views of a man that successfully designs, manufactures and sells amplifiers, speakers and cables?

 

Sheesh!

I enjoy the shows and this one was a cracker.  Keep up the great work.
