Welcome to the 47th issue of the web magazine for audio, music and home theater - transitioned from the former national radio program AUDIOPHILE AUDITION, which was heard for over 13 years on stations coast to coast. We are dedicated to your auditional wellbeing. Look for a design face-lift of the site soon.

This month we continue our extensive hi-res-format reviews with 28 reviews of multichannel DVD-Audio, multichannel and stereo SACDs. Components covered are an excellent CD player and an AV surround receiver, both at reasonable prices. We also review another phono preamp plus three useful accessories. Our in-depth coverage of all types of optical discs comes to 107 reviews for this issue- more than any other web audio publication! The Survey of the Print Audio and HT Press and our Audio Interviews continue. And you have the opportunity to share your thoughts and questions with other audiophiles via our association with the SoundReproduction.com High End Audio Resource:
