Editorial for January 2008

by | Jan 1, 2008 | Editorial | 0 comments






Welcome to Adobe GoLive 6

LipFix.com is awarding two Felston DD740 lip
sync delay boxes to Audiophile Audition readers
this month who register here.  Many AV receivers and preamps advertise they include a video delay feature, which is actually an audio delay – since the audio is usually ahead of the video. However, this is a fixed delay which may compensate for your particular display or even the station, but not for the variances between programs or even during a single telecast or DVD!  Only an outboard unit such as the Felston can do that fine-tuning. If one of the winners is already a registered owner of any of the Felston units, they will receive full reimbursement of their purchase price or a choice of one of the other Felston delays. Register here to be entered in the drawing on February 1.
 
The 12 AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers who registered during December and are being sent the two Mack Avenue CDs (one  a Gerald Wilson Band SACD) are:
Peter Blokland, the Netherlands; Alexia Holyoak, Manunda, Australia; John Millheim, Cape Coral, Fl; Doug Long, Rio Rancho, NM; Ted Palmer, St. Augustine, FL; Harry Brener, Arcadia, CA; Paul Johnston, NYC; John Qualls, Sand Springs, OK; Jeff Berkwits, San Diego, CA; Mary Capps, Austin, TX;  Esther Gill, Riverside, CA; Jim Kovolsky, Seminole, FL.


 

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.
 
January 08 is our 107th issue! and last year we observed our Ninth Anniversary! All reviews – over 100 a 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.
