Welcome to the 39th month of the web zine for audio, music and home theater - transitioned from the former national radio program AUDIOPHILE AUDITION, heard for over 13 years on stations coast to coast. Being the start of a brand new (and we sincerely hope better for everyone) year, it's time for our annual BEST OF THE YEAR LIST - also 88 selections. We continue our extensive hi-res format reviews with both multichannel DVD-Audio stereo SACDs - 16 total. Also 8 new xrcd releases. Components covered are a best-buy five-channel basic amp perfect for the new hi-res sources, a French CD player and a multiroom preamp controlling up to six different sources in up to six separate locations. Our in-depth coverage of all types of optical discs this month is at the 88 mark in total. The Survey of the Print Audio and HT Press and our Audio Interviews in MP3 continue. We also now offer our readers an opportunity to share their thoughts and questions with other audiophiles via our association with the SoundReproduction.Com High End Audio Resource.
If music and movies are the reasons we're nuts about this stuff, why does our software get minimum space in most print and online publications? Our purpose is to communicate the passion and excitement of high quality music and films - the real reason you purchased or will purchase your high end audio and home theater components, right?
