Our tenth Hi-Res Drawing features SACDs from Opus 3 Records. A dozen lucky AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers who Register Here (or have registered earlier) will receive their choice of one of the three multi-channel SACD discs above: Peder af Ugglas is a great guitarist who moves between Delta blues and gospel; Katina Wilson is a singer/guitarist/ composer in the singer-songwriter tradition; Showcase 2005 is a SACD sampler of Blues, Jazz, World Music and Classical – all in Surround Sound! Drawings will be June 1, we’ll announce the winners thereafter, and we won’t sell/share your information. Check back with us frequently for more reviews & news!
