Just a quick detour from Las Vegas and back in Paris, actually in "Cote Paris".
I just got the latest copy of "Cote Paris" - the January issue - obviously, we are on the other side of the Planet (lol...) and to my utter surprise, there is a full page on Elipson, their new Planets ( no, not the ones from Holst..., but certainly of Helmholtz fame!).
And these little beauties have been designed by our good friend Jullien Thaler who just posted a photo on his Facebook page of the very rare "Religieuses" used by the French Radio (ORTF) as monitors for a long time.
And in another twist of fate, I had a long conversation with my ex-HP colleague, Marc Fontaine, who bought Mulidine back in 2005 - more on these speakers in a later post - and happens to be a neighbour and friend of Jullien: The World is Flat (a must-read book by Thomas L. Friedman)
