Editorial for January 2009

by | Jan 1, 2009 | Editorial | 0 comments

Welcome to Adobe GoLive 6

Our January drawing/giveaway is for the first two acclaimed SACDs using the amazing Zenph Studios technology: Glenn Gould playing Bach’s Goldberg Variations in 1955 and Art Tatum’s Live at the Shrine concert of 1949. See our reviews of the Gould here, and the Tatum here. Also a feature on Zenph here.  Both discs contain multichannel performances newly recorded in DSD on a nine-foot concert grand, plus stereo SACD and stereo CD layers, plus separate binaural pickups which with headphones put your head exactly where Gould’s and Tatum’s heads were as they were performing! Ten lucky AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers will be sent both SACDs in early February, drawn from those who register on the site this monthAnd when you register, let us know of your specific interest in the Zenph SACDs.

Here are the two AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers whose names were drawn and will be shipped the Brilliant Classics Haydn Set of 150 CDs, encompassing his most famous works.  Congratulations to both!  Barry T. Bassis, New York City; Anthony Salzano, Trinity, FL


 General Editorial 


AUDIOPHILE AUDITION began in 1985 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. In September 1998 its site for programming information was expanded to the present Net publication.
January 09 is our 119th issue, and we’re publishing more and more disc reviews each month All of them – well over 100 per month – are added throughout the month as they are written and received, usually on a daily basis. We have organized the web site to make it easy to navigate and find content. The most recent reviews appear at the top of each Section Index. 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 lists all past reviews.
