Welcome to the 58th issue of the web magazine for audio, music and home theater - transitioned from the former national radio program AUDIOPHILE AUDITION, which was heard for over 13 years on stations coast to coast. We are dedicated to your auditional wellbeing.

This month we feature a new record of 39 Hi-Res discs - DVD-A & SACD - multichannel & stereo - more than any other publication. Plus 98 other DVDs and standard CDs for a total 137 discs reviewed! Tannoy's Eyris 3 Speaker and Fosgate's FAPT1 Multichannel AV preamp with video display on the front are two components reviewed. We also have a special feature survey of opinions from leading surround sound mavens on better alternatives to 5.1 for music reproduction without a video display. The Survey of the Print Audio and HT Press is now updated as current issues come in.
