AUDIOPHILE AUDITION has joined together with SOUNDREPRODUCTION.COM to provide a high end interactive Net resource for audio information. The new site offers discussion forums on any audio topic but also specifically on SACD, Home Theater, Home Recording, Speakers, Tubes vs. Solid State, Vibration Isolation and more. Also Technical Resources, Equipment Reviews, Featured Audiophiles and Audio Links. We invite our readers to participate in the free discussion forums.

Welcome to the 38th month of the web zine for audio, music and home theater - transitioned from the former national radio program AUDIOPHILE AUDITION, heard for over 13 years on stations coast to coast. We continue with our extensive SACD format reviews with a dozen more this time, plus 13 new Christmas CDs & SACDs. Components covered are an unexpected 12-channel amp (just the thing for Tom Holman's new 10.2 surround, with two channels left over for stereo in your bedroom!); one of Theil's acclaimed tower speakers, and the mysterious Shakti Stones for EMI control. Our in-depth coverage of all types of optical discs this month will be well over the 85 mark in total. The Survey of the Print Audio and HT Press and our Audio Interviews in MP3 continue (see just above).
If music and movies are the reasons we're nuts about this stuff, why does our software get minimum space in most print and online publications? Our purpose is to communicate the passion and excitement of high quality music and films - the real reason you purchased or will purchase your high end audio and home theater components, right?
