Editorial for April 2008

by | Apr 1, 2008 | Editorial | 0 comments

Welcome to Adobe GoLive 6

Mapleshade Studios will be sending a pair of their classical and jazz CDs to a dozen Audiophile Audition readers in this month’s Giveaway. Piano Sonatas in B minor by both Liszt and Chopin are performed on a Fasioli piano by Alan Gampel on Disc 1. Disc 2 is New York Dances, with the tightly-knit Jack Jeffers Big Band. Mapleshade approaches music recording in a radically different way from other labels, informed by  the many sonic tweaks they have discovered.  You’ll hear the difference in warm and natural acoustics. Register here to be entered in the drawing for April, to receive your discs in early May.
Here are the dozen winners of last month’s Giveaway of the ballet version of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream from Naxos (in all three DVD formats):
Quoc Nguyen, San Francisco; William Young, Richmond VA; Dan Dixon, Benecia CA; Clinton Robertson, DeRidder LA; Mary Lee Walker, Sanford NC; Ernest Powell, St. Albans WV; David Williams, Lexington Park, MD; Fred Scholl, Lemon Grove CA; Marilyn Wons, Miramar Beach FL; Carol Strand, Wampaca WI 



General Editorial 

Welcome to the web publication for audio, music and home theater, emphasizing hi-res, hi-def, and surround sound for music! AUDIOPHILE AUDITION began as a weekly national radio series hosted by John Sunier, which aired for 13 1/2 years on up to 200 public radio and commercial stations coast to coast.
April 08 is our 110th issue and last year we observed our Ninth Anniversary! All reviews – about 100 per month – are added throughout the month as they are written and received. We have reorganized the web site to make it easier to navigate and find content. The most recent reviews appear at the top of each Section Index. To read the full review, click on the headline and you will be taken directly to that review. The Home Page lists the five latest published reviews, the Section Index lists the past two months of reviews, the Archive goes back to June 1, 2005, and for all reviews by month prior to that you need to click on the Old Archive, which goes back to 2001. The Disc Index also lists past reviews in every section.
You probably have some friends who would like to know about Audiophile Audition.  Please pass our URL on to them and help expand our elite group of readers and collectors.  It’s easy to do at the bottom of every review, by just clicking on the “Email this page to a friend” link. Thanks in advance for getting the word out!

We welcome your feedback, and we have a Reader Feedback section. Please send us your comments, and we will review and possibly post them to that section. Check back with us frequently for more reviews and news, and be sure to register for our monthly giveaway! When you do, please give us the few requested facts, including a working email and street address – otherwise we can’t send you your winning item!  We don’t share your information with anyone else.


We have an affiliation with an exciting AV online forum for those who would like to share with others your views, news, questions and answers about music, audio and home theater. Currently well over 4000 register members participate; it’s like having your own AV club online. And it’s free! Have fun interconnecting!
