3.0 von 5 Sternen Nicht schlecht als .mp3 Player, aber..., 11. August 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I just purchased this Player with the mind to listen to .flac files. Unfortunately, albeit what Sony says, this Player does not Support .flac files if not of very small Dimension. The same Problem arise with .wma and .wav files. The Player is not able to reproduce a 200 Mb .wav files. At first, I was disappointed. Then, I connected it with Nuforce mmp (an headphone amplifier) with a Gold cable (the cable of Nuforce is not the best) and my Sennheiser IE 60, or my Sennheiser HD 599. I must be honest: it reproduces very well .mp3 and .wav files of cd Quality. You can buy all this stuff at Amazon.de. If you want a Player or mid-quality, this is a well choice.

3.0 von 5 Sternen zu empfehlen aber..., 17. Juli 2014

This sacd deserves an in-depth review, because there are many pros and cons. I begin with the cons:
1. The booklet is not reliable and from its reading one is prone to not listen the cd. Bruch is considered a mere reactionary figure, unable to compete with Brahms or Wagner. Surely, Bruch was not Wagner but his music and his style of composition are noteworthy. Both the Schottische Phantasie and the first concerto are cyclic because Bruch is able to derive from the same melodic, harmonic or rhythmic pattern, diverse and beautiful melodies, in the sense of the first Schumann. Furthermore, it is to stress the technique of variation which Bruch dispels throughout all these recorded pieces. Often, the orchestra plays a motive, while the solo violin playing a variation of it, a Beethovenian technique (listen to his fourth piano concerto, for example). Impressing is Bruch’s ability to choose folk melodies as stemming from the principal melodic cell. No one can ignore how the same rhythm pass from the first to the last movement of the first violin concert.
But it is not all.
2. The recording is harsh. Albeit his vibrato, Braunstein seem to scratch his instrument, being very dry and too much penetrating. I don’t think that Braunstein be so. The solo is too much on the foreground and the orchestra in the background, in such a way that the beautifulness (in its semplicity) of Bruch’ score is not easy to grasp. I don’t like Ion Marin (the conductor) who makes his job, but without great interest in it.
Let us pass to the pros:
1. Braunstein’s interpretation is worthy of note and of being listened to. He is able to articulate Bruch’s phrasing in the best way, stressing any detail and without rhetoric. We may say that he has a philological approach to Bruch’ works, aiming to casting light on the overall structure of the pieces. By the way, the Romanza with which the sacd ends, is not a real Bearbeitung by Braunstein of the original work for viola. Braunstein has only changed the key of the piece, in order to adapt it to the violin. The orchestra’ score is by Bruch. No note was changed. This is another error contained in the booklet.
Summarizing, the cons seem to surpass the pros, but I give notwithstanding to the cd three stars for the imposing interpretation of Braunstein. If you are interested in listen to Bruch, but avoiding all the rhetoric of many performances, this is the ideal one. If you want not crying at some rhetorical passage, but you want understand, this sacd is for you.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Unsatisfying, 16. November 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Stalingrad (Taschenbuch)
This book is written in a slang English, without an appropriate set of notes. There is not ad indication for a footnote througout the book. At the end, there are page for page the references. This is very awkard. The literature is higly incomplete and seldom are listed book in their original linguistic Version. Beevor relies for the most part on letters and on Zeugen. Unfortunately, letters are not a reliable source inasmuch, they were red from the SD or from the Sovietic censure. Witnesses are not of scientific value, because they convey Feelings but are imprecise on Facts and Events.
Great mistake is to consider NS-Aggression a "war". It was not a war but an Angriff and the "enemy" was not the Soviet Union, but the Wehrmacht. The author is very indulgent with the behaviour of German army, but he does not lose an Occasion to rebuke Soviet Union. Well, if Beevor is not communist is not a Problem, but then, he writes a work on this Topic. I suggest, as best reading the "Stalingrad, Mythos und Wirklichkeit einer Schlacht" (Wette and Überschar, eds.), Fischer Verlag. This is history! Beevor's book is a romance.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A mathematical dictionary, 26. März 2013
Given the limited space at his disposal, the author cannot deliver a full-fledged theory of ODEs. This book is a sort of "companion to...", and handbook to which referencing without being involved in an Ungeheurliche volume. For example, the space devoted to linear/vector algebra is compressed in two pages. The text is of aid, as a memo for the principal tecniques in ODEs Theory, as a point of departure to deepen the argument with further literature. You may read for what it is: a summary of procedures involving ODEs, not a book on ODEs. As such, i.e. as summary, it is noteworthy.

This book is articulated in two ideal section: an introduction on the status of psyichiatry, of asilums and patients from the mid 1800 onwards; then, 23 portraits of patient who died under the T4-operation. This way, the editor emebed the 23 short biographies in a broader context which only can give sense to these human sketches. The volume is well written and the editors wrotes seminal works about. It also interesting the link with "our" modern concept of Euthansie, which enables not only a comparison from different point of views, but it also deepen the concept in itself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a "must have" for any mathematician, 5. März 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This book is the definitive and ultimate resource for any people engaged in mathematics. It is a sort of dictionary, where each entry is not a verbal string, but a mathematical function. For this reason it is beyond the scope of the volume explaining the various concepts involved, limiting itself to a mathematical definition for a function whatever. That does not mean, of course, that explanations or pictures are missing. They are, but not on the fore. Usually, chapters end with applications (also in realm of physics) and appropriate references. To stress, also if trivial, is that the book does not cover the entire realm of mathematics. It aims to collect only type of mathematica object: function (or functional). Accordingly, no algebra, no topology, no geometry, and so on. To make one example: dirac function is analyzed as test-function and not as a mathematical tool for physics. Shortly: buy it!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing, 28. Februar 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I am regretting to write this review, but I hope that it could be of aid. Frankly, this external dac is disappointing. I own a laptop lenovo G780 with conexant smart audio and dolby advanced audio and the quality of its sound is significantly better than that of the dac. The dac has only the advantage to eliminate the disturbs from the kernel and pc, but for the rest its sound is poor and a real failure. Also after turning off dolby, the laptop sounds better... I wasted my money. Alas...[I selected one star, but it do not deserve it...]

I just bought these earphones. I cannot agree on the previous review. The sound quality is superb, hervorragend, with excellent bass, well shaped strings, sweet woodwinds and clear percussions. They recreate also a sensation of free and surrounding space in which music is embedded. Furthermore, I found Sennheiser's packaging of first class having care of any detail. Meiner Meinunung nach, say, Sennheiser IE 60 are really High End earphones, able to improve the listening.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A real Handbook, 7. Dezember 2011
The book in issue is complete from any point of view. All that one needs in order to create and to manage a MySQL-database is explained in this volume. A particular stressing lays in the section devoted to the programming with mysql which enables the reader to enter in the interior of the database. Unfortunately, there are some typos in the listings. One frequent error is the wrong scope of some function. Take care of the parentheses and of the delimiters. The introduction, devoted to the mathematical environment in which MySQL was born is not very accurate. For example, it is historically and conceptually false that a relation algebra is founded on set-theory. Alfred Tarski, inspired by Ernst Schroeder's work on relations, gave some definition of "Relation Algebra" and worked out with Monk and Henkin the "Cylindric Algebras" (a sort of generalization of the concept of relation algebras). The milieu was purely algebraic. A set is viewed as a particular type of relation (the composition of a relation with the universal relation). Surely, we can develop relation theory starting with the concept of "ordered couple" set-theoretically, but this was not the aim of Tarski. See for example his last book with Givant. For the state of the art in Relation Algebras, see the Handbook by Roger D. Maddux. Apart this slip, the text is fantastic because is auto-consistent. You don't need to search elsewhere for concepts introduced in the book. Anything you must know is contained there. Very useful the appendix with the syntax of any MySQL command. The book deserve interest not only for future administrators but for anyone who is interested in MySQL. As usually, Galileo Press publishes a nice book: hardcover, paper of quality, correct and pleasant layout.


Anatomie des SS-Staates
Anatomie des SS-Staates

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best book on the involved structure of NS-State, 3. Oktober 2011
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Anatomie des SS-Staates (Taschenbuch)
This book is articulated in five section: H. Buchheim, Die SS -- das Herrschaftsinstrument, H. Buchheim, Befehl und Gehorsam, M. Broszat, Nationalsozialistische Konzentrazionslager 1933 - 1945, H.-A. Jacobsen, Kommissarbefehl und Massenexekutionen sowjetischer Kriegsgefangener, H. Krausnik, Judenverfolgung. The first contribute by Buchheim is a sort of introduction in which the administrative status of the SS (and of its sections) is subject of an in depth review. In particular, Buchheim dwells on the link between SS, politic and state police, and the SD. This helps to grasp the specific place occupied by the various formations belonging to SS in the NS-dual state. The second paper by Buchheim is a masterpiece. One of the most important question about NS-state in general is: "who were responsible for this event?" Then, it is important understand the link between and order and its reception. In the case of army, this relation is clarified by army penal code which establishes who "can" impart an order, who "must" execute the order and the "consequences" of not executing the order. Well, given that SS had no code at all, how establishing a Befelhaber?
Broszat focuses on the various meanings that the word "Lager" had during Nazi age. I didn't like the section by Jacobsen, because he listed many important historical documents, but without inserting them in an appropriated and articulated structure. A document in itself is not important, but it is important as a piece of a more large building. For example, it is not very clear the political position of Canaris. He made some objections about sharpening the behaviour against Russian prisoners, but it is all. Did Canaris, apart this little note (a sentence), agree with German policy against Russian war prisoners?
Finally, Krausnik explains in detail the situation of Hebrew in Germany, starting from the common attitude towards them present there yet from the 19th century

I strongly suggest the reading of this book. At least for the second chapter which constitutes a fortunate interpretation of the phenomenon, behaviour and "philosophy" behind SS.
