Alan Ryder, B. C. Canada
I never miss your Audio News section. One of the best sources for up to date news on
high resolution audio.
Jay Donnelly, Carlyle, IL
Great job on the site, it is one of my daily “must clicks”. I especially enjoy the SACD reviews. Keep it up and thanks again! WOW!
Noel Perrin, Indianapolis, IN
Review of the Marantz Prof CD Rec Model CDR300 by John Sunier was so thorough and straightforward, that even a totally new-to-recording-world person like myself benefited it immensely. Thank you!
Siddarth Lodaya, Bangalore India
Congratulations, keep your great work! Love your informative and enjoyable site.
Jose Garcia, Hatillo, Puerto Rico
Enjoy both the website and was a long-time listener of the radio series as well. I’ve collected CDs, SACDs, and DVD-As, as well as DVD-Video and Blu-Ray. High-end audiophile for ~25 years: the best hobby to get me to sit still and relax in pleasure! Sold all my LPs years ago, still somewhat regretful…..Thanks for your efforts here.
Lee Aldridge, Albuquerque, NM
I’m new to your web site, and like it a lot for your expertise, and love of high quality music. I love truth in all its forms, and I enjoy your insight and opinions because you seem to know and to care. Thanks for being there.
William Polson, Vinita, OK
I enjoy reading the SACD reviews and have made all new SACD purchases based on your 4/5 star reviews. Keep up the good work.
Carl Albright, Geneva, IL
Awesome site! I found the info I needed very quickly.
Alyza Gossat, Malvern East VIC, Australia
Just came across audaud.com and am impressed with the quality and variety of your presentations!
I’m interested in all music, but it has to be a good recording. So, that’s what I find on your website. And I come back every week to read your new reviews. I’m specially interested in SACD.
Thanks for all the reading pleasures you give me and greetings from The Netherlands.
Peter Blokland, Netherlands
Great site for all CD, SACD, DVD-Audio. The best reviews I have read in all music reviews. Please keep up the great work.!!!!
Bruce Voigt. Atkinson, NH
I just want to say, “Thank You,” for having such a great site. I absolutely enjoy your reviews on all audio/audio issues/audio equip & depend on them to make my purchases. JOB WELL DONE ladies & gentlemen!
jim kovolsky, seminole, FL
Great site with very interesting and informative reviews. I try to visit 3-4 times a week. Great contests too! Thanks! Keep up the good work!
Leonard Ray, Southgate, MI
Keep up the good work! I love the site and all of the great information and reviews. It’s kinda like the old Sears Toy catalog was for me as a kid. I think you know what I mean.
Noel Perrin, Indianapolis, IN
Love the website. It’s been a terrific source of information for me.
Lee Scoggins, Boulder, CO
Audiophile Audition is my go-to site for all hi-res, multichannel reviews.
Brendan Gaul, Tempe, AZ
Your site is one of the brightest spots on the entire internet (at least for me), and is visited at least daily.
Bob Berkman, Newberry Springs, CA
Your magazine is the best on the Web.
Jessica Lambert, NYC
Glad to come across such a fine online audiophile resource!
Greg Walters, Kingwood, TX
Thanks for the very useful review; I would have passed it by otherwise.
I use your website everyday for reviews, etc., and have always respected your reviews and reviewer’s opinions. ..use it a lot for my hi-res purchases. Keep up the good work.
Ralph Mazzeo Jr., Port Chester NY
I just wanted to say in general that AudAud is incredible because it gives so many reviews to various classical and not only artists that are so hard to get these days. Many people read them and get information about rare or hard to find recordings and discover wonderful music they would otherwise never hear of.
Alexey Gorokholinskiy, NYC
Just heard about Zenph recording on an NPR music show and it led me to your interesting site. Looking forward to perusing it further.
Ken Browd, Brooklyn NY
This is my favorite source for finding media I might not otherwise consider. Keep up the good work!
Doug Makofka, Willow Grove PA
I love reading Gary Lemco’s reviews of classical music!
Donald Wright, San Jose CA
I’m basically “old school” except that I opted very early for CDs. Listen to mostly classical music at least 5-6 hours a day. I still have exceptional hearing at age 69 and hope to appreciate great music to the very end.
Marty Kastriner, Westborough MA
My CD/SACD collection is always in a state of flux whereby I let some discs go and acquire other new ones. AudAud is a favorite read online because of the Classical/Jazz reviews and the smart EZ-to-read layout.
Brian Trout, Cape Verde AZ
I remember John Sunier’s Audiophile Audition [radio program] like it was yesterday! I’m not sure if it was on WFMT or the late WNIB station. As a poor audiophile I dream about getting a state-of-the art system. I am here at the library and just discovered your website. I think it was from a link from BIC speakers which I just thought about after seeing an ad in an old hifi magazine. I will regularly look at this website for reviews of equipment and CDs I might be able to get…
Gary Leavitt, Skokie IL
Great site and worthwhile reviews – have bought a lot of music after being informed by your reviews.
Michael Dixon, Portland OR
Love the site! I especially appreciate the hi-res reviews.
Sam Young, Sewell NJ
Dear Mr. Sunier,
After several years of reading AUDAUD monthly – and since your format switch daily – it is time for me to thank you for your website and reviews. In particular, thank you for the reviews by Gary Lemco, which combine personal stream-of-consciousness reflections with deep catalog experience of (so it seems) every recording ever made. I wish I knew as much about anything as he does about historical recordings!
David Altschuler, Los Angeles
Great site! I’ve purchased many recordings based on your reviews. We need more pop/rock reviews as well, however. I need to know what sounds good in a world of crumby recordings. Thanks!
-Marko, Queens, NY
I take great pleasure in reading your reviews of the latest CDs regularly.
Pierre Robitaille, Quebec, Canada
I look forward to visiting your site daily.
Bruce Scheiner, Levittown, NY
Love your site! One of the best for hi-res audio. Many thanks.
Lenny Cyment, Scottsdale, AZ
I love your reviews and your magazine. It’s very well written and a pleasure to spend time with it.
Fred Lacher, Albuquerque, NM
I love the site. Great reviews of recordings and equipment.
Theodore Moyer, Reading, PA
I really enjoy your thorough CD/SACD reviews. Makes what to buy next an easy choice. Thanks!
Michael Kidd, Palmyra, VA
Just learned of your (web) magazine! Am exploring and so far finding it interesting. I started out with Hi-Fi Stereo Review way back and dropped it when it went video. It is nice to find a place that still considers full specs important.
Donald Burgess, Needham, MA
Thanks for running a fine site.
Bert Ramsey, Nanaimo BC, Canada
I enjoy the equipment & jazz CD reviews
Gerald Porzio, Brooklyn, NY
Thank you for the excellent resource!
Steve Pollock, Lancaster, CA
I remember hearing John on the radio but just discovered this site. I’ve got some catching up to do!
Robert Hesson, Jacksonville, FL
I used to listen to your radio program on NPR many years ago. I taped a few of the binaural audio programs on cassette and still enjoy them from time to time.
John Bailey, Cuyahoga Falls, OH
I love what you’re doing…why’d I take so long to find you?
Seymour Miles, New York, NY
Thanks Mr. S.! P.S.: I miss your show on NPR, but your web site is even better!
Bill Carroll, Loganville, GA
You provide a valuable service to the audiophile community. We need to all support each other if this audiophile hobby is to prosper. I just bought my first universal player and especially look forward to experiencing high end multi-channel SACD/DVD-A.
David Sanford, Missouri City, TX
just discovered your website … a fantastic resource, especially for someone like me who listens to certain types of music but would like to explore other types as well.
Laura Starrett, Villas, NJ
Great Site! – Love those SACD reviews.
John Hunter, Earlwood, Australia
Thanks for all the hi-res and equipment reviews.

I particularly find your news features timely, relevant, and interesting.
S. Andrea Sundaram, Benton Harbor, MI
I’m a pianist, love classical music to listen and to perform; at the moment I’m finishing postgraduate studies…your site is great! Just continue to be as smart as you are!
Vedrana, Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina
Have read John Sunier for many years–since binaural days.
Michael Figliozzi, Glendale, CA
I really enjoy SACD sound and always enjoy a visit here for the latest reviews.
Shawn Dow, Moncton, New Brunswick
Keep those great reviews flowing!
Jeffrey Canaday, Springfield, OR
I rely on AudAud and ClassicsToday (supplemented by BBC and Gramophone) to guide my (predominantly) SACD purchases… I can’t afford to experiment!
John Bain, Brisbane, Australia
I just found your web-site, and interesting music reviews and hardware also. I am interested especially in SACDs, DVD-audios, dualdiscs and all good music.
Esa Karikoski, Finland
Love your website for surround sound information!
- Bruce Hartley, Lenexa, KS
Thanks for reviewing surround sound titles, AudAud is the only such comprehensive online reviewer that I know of. My only comment would be to always try and mention how the surrounds, center and sub are representing the music. Gary Pahler, Louisville, KY
Love the web site! Especially the SACD and DVD-A reviews. Keep it up, cause I’ll be reading!
Rod Morgan, Antioch, TN
My favorite CD review site on the web, particularly the classical reissues.
Great ezine, I love visiting!
Tim Bishop, Golden, CO
I find your site very helpful for research and information and as chairman of a 106- voice oratorio choir, I often look you up!
Mairtin O’Briain, Limerick City, Ireland
Love your website and your reviews of SACD and DVD Audio!!
Bruce Hartley, Lenexa, KS
I just had my first visit to Audiophile Audition and enjoyed the experience thoroughly. The single biggest problem that I have with most print magazines is that they run out of pages before I am ready to put them down. With Audiophile Audition there is a plethora of information available to the point that I can read until my attention span is ready for a breather. Not only is there a thorough amount of information in the current month but there is an archive that allows me to catch up on all of the information that was available before I found he web site. The information also seems to be very professionally written and fully encompasses each subject. Thank you for publishing! I just wish I had found your site sooner.
As usual the quality and depth put into your reviews not only show passion for HI-REZ music but all music. Keep up the good work and I look forward to each new batch of reviews.
Peter Wilson, Ontario, Canada
What a top site I have just come across — full of interesting subjects!
Ken Clark, Ulladulla, Australia
Love the SACD and Hi-Res Reviews!
Bill Myers, Nashville, Tennessee
Excellent reference website for new classical music DVD releases.
Gabriel Diaz A., Rio Rico, Arizona
As a Jazz broadcaster, reviewer, and technology freak/audiophile, it was a delight to come accross your site by a chance referral looking for a review of in ear noise-reducing phones. Nice to see a review from someone with similar taste for a change, rather than trying to second-guess the assessment of a metal / grunge / pop / techno fan, who doesn’t seem to have any classical or jazz music for reviewing purposes. I will delve further into the site, which has been added to my bookmarks.
Chris Caine, Isle of Man, UK
I really like your new and easy-to-read web design. As always, the content is what I enjoy the most.
Leonard Gross, Houston
Just found you! Looks like a refreshing “second-take” for a sometimes-annoyed Stereophile reader.
Manfred Bracklow, Portland, Maine
As I’ve commented to John Sunier on several occasions, audaud.com is the most comprehensive music reviewing site. Period. Peter Wilson, Canada
Great magazine, and very useful for pre-selecting my hi-res audio! Thank you very much!
Ernst Schwerdt, Netherlands
Excellent site; on the cutting edge.
Mel Bernay, Plover, WI
One great thing about Audiophile Audition is the comprehensive reviews of NON audiophile vintage classical reissues – brilliant performances recorded well before the “hi-fi” era. This is about the only place online that I know of where I can keep track of these unique independent reissues.
Dan C, Windy, Wyoming
Great mag. Always enjoyable & informative! John Brown, Scottsdale, AZ
Just found your site- very nice. I’m just getting into DVD-A and SACD; I appreciate the hi-res disk reviews.

I enjoyed your site and am putting it before my audiophile colleagues who might not know of it.

Outstanding ezine. For software, peerless.
I found your site listed as part of a description for an SACD player I was bidding on at eBay. This is just what I’ve been looking for! I do like your current format and found it to be very easy to navigate.
Congratulations on your intriguing web site !
Frank Zoeckler, San Juan Capistrano, California
