The Wall Street Journal recently printed a special section titled "No More Free Lunch - In the future, the best things on the Web may not be free." More and more web publications are beginning to charge their readers for access to a portion of their offerings. We don't plan to do that here at AUDIOPHILE AUDITION - our support comes only from our banner advertisers. So if you appreciate the unique information we bring you free of charge each month and week, please patronize our advertisers. Simply click to go to their sites, find their Contact Us link, and leave a short email expressing your thanks for their support of AUDIOPHILE AUDITION.

Welcome to the 43rd 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. We continue our extensive hi-res-format reviews with 23 reviews of multichannel DVD-Audio, multichannel and stereo SACD. Also ten recent Film Soundtrack CDs. Components covered are Integra's 7.2 DVD-A & V Player, Magnum Dynalab's FM Tuner, and a new flat-wire speaker cable from DeCorp. Our in-depth coverage of all types of optical discs comes to 107 reviews this month - more than any other web audio publication! The Survey of the Print Audio and HT Press and our Audio Interviews in MP3 continue. And you now have the opportunity to share your thoughts and questions with other audiophiles via our association with the SoundReproduction.com High End Audio Resource:
AUDIOPHILE AUDITION has joined together with SOUNDREPRODUCTION.COM to provide a high-end interactive Net resource for audio information. The new site offers discussion forums on any audio topic but also specifically on SACD, Home Theater, Home Recording, Speakers, Tubes vs. Solid State, Vibration Isolation and more. Also Technical Resources, Equipment Reviews, Featured Audiophiles and Audio Links. We invite our readers to participate in the free discussion forums.
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?
