Restoring Bluetooth Audio Connectivity in Ubuntu 22.10

Restoring Bluetooth Audio Connectivity in Ubuntu 22.10

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I wrote about restoring the audio output after upgrading to Ubuntu 22.10. Today, we will be seeing about how to restore the Bluetooth connectivity to Bluetooth Headsets, Headphones, and dongles. Just like yesterday, this has to do with a package that we must install in the system to make this work. Otherwise, the connections will fail. The Problem After upgrading Ubuntu to the development version 22.10, Bluetooth audio devices fails to connect with a br-connection-profile-unavailable error. The…

Restoring audio after upgrading Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix 22.04 to Ubuntu 22.10 (Development version)

Hi everyone, Today, we will be seeing how to restore the audio outputs after upgrading an Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix 22.04 to Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix 22.10. I had this problem happen on my machines after installing Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix 22.04 and then performing an upgrade using the command do-release-upgrade -d. This effectively upgrades Ubuntu 22.04 to the latest development version which currently is 22.10. However, it seems it messed up with my audio. Luckily, the solution is simple and we will…

The Vizio 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos SB36512-F6 Soundbar

Hi everyone, Today, we will be seeing the Vizio 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos SB36512-F6 Soundbar. I got this in a not so expected situation. I was at Sam’s Club looking for a new Washing Machine for my parents, since the one they had was failing. While we were checking prices, I decided to go to the entertainment section where there were several Sound Bars. I saw this Vizio and proceeded to test the sound of each one. The sound of this…

KZ ZES Unboxing and First Impressions

Hi everyone, Today, we will be seeing the new KZ ZES IEM. This is KZ’s new model that comes before the newly announced KZ EDA. This model features a new 12mm dynamic driver along a 6.8mm electrostatic driver. It is similar to the KZ ZEX in terms of its speaker configuration, except that this one upgrades the dynamic driver to a 12mm version rather than the ZEX 10mm driver. For this IEM, we get to see a sort of new…

KZ releases the new KZ EDA IEM boxset

Hi everyone, Late last week, KZ officially released the KZ EDA IEM boxset. This is a new approach for KZ where they are including 3 different tunings of the same IEM in the same box.

KZ x HBB DQ6S Review

KZ x HBB DQ6S Review

Hi everyone, After a week of listening to the new KZ DQ6S IEM, I’m ready to share my thoughts on it. The KZ DQ6S is an IEM consisting of 3 dynamic drivers: one 10mm “Xun” dynamic driver and two 6mm drivers. This is the same configuration of the original KZ DQ6, but this is tuned differently. It is a collaboration between KZ and HBB. As usual, the IEM box and content is no different from other KZ IEMs and we…

Lofi Minnie: Focus

Lofi Minnie: Focus

Hi everyone, This past Friday, March 18, 2022, Disney released this album called Lofi Minnie: Focus: This album seems to bring elements of “Lo-Fi Music” which I’ve actually never heard before. I’ve gave this album a try and it seems to be some slow music with some beats, but at the same time sounds relaxing. This may be the reason of the Focus on the name and the representation of Minnie in front of a desk. While I’ve found the…

KZ releases the new KZ ZES IEM with a 12mm dynamic driver

Hi everyone, This week, KZ launched their new KZ ZES IEM. This model features a 12mm dynamic driver and an “electrostatic” driver, similar to the previous KZ ZEX model. It seems that the main difference between the KZ ZES and the previous KZ ZEX is that this new model uses a 12mm dynamic driver whereas the previous KZ models seem to use a 10mm dynamic driver. The electrostatic is still a 6.8mm unit. It will be interesting to hear this…

MP3 GUI v1.0 is released!

MP3 GUI v1.0 is released!

Hi everyone, Today, I’m publishing a new MP3 Graphical User Interface software to encode audio files to MP3. This software uses ffmpeg’s libmp3lame or libshine encoding libraries in order to produce MP3 files. These provides you an option to choose between quality or speed encoding. For quality MP3 files, there’s libmp3lame, while for speed (and a lower quality) there is libshine. It also provides the option to encode files using a variable bitrate when using libmp3lame, and allows choosing a…
