Dr. AIX's POSTS — 25 August 2013


I enjoy hearing from readers. As you might expect, I get a lot of email from audiophiles, engineers and other writers. It’s another Sunday and I’ve got to clear out yet another room here at the studio for a tenant that is headed in next weekend. I’ve been trying to throw out old equipment and other clutter…but it’s hard.

I’d like to share a few emails that I received over the past few weeks:

“My first 2 AIX Blu-rays have now arrived (Albert Lee & Goldberg variations) and the sound quality is truly magnificent, when watching the video content as well it’s like you’re in the studio with the musicians, seems very personal, if that makes sense, even on my 2 ch. Set-up. I played both twice all evening and into the night, I couldn’t drag myself away from it. I will be ordering a couple more next week.” Martin

“Well, I have to say those files are the cleanest, most articulate audio I’ve heard in a long time and I was able to turn up the volume a bit as I suppose it has no compression or EQ at all so everything has a greater swing of range from low to high. Very well recorded and I really liked the Latin Jazz trio as it had a lot of very clean and crisp high end and imaging floating around though everything was well done and sounded great, just some of it isn’t my kind of music.” Terry

“Hi Mark, I received my first order early this week and took them to a friends place who didn’t let me bring them home. He is my surgeon, operated on me more than 9 times and has kept me alive, so I left the DVD’s behind with a good deal of pleasure. Any samplers that you can include are greatly appreciated. I can understand that you must have a huge following, you have two more Aussie’s on that list.” Terence

“This is my first AIX release. These are great musicians captured on a great recording with video to match. Bravo!” Robert

“I first listened to your recording in 96/24. I found it to be crisp and clear, I can clearly distinguish all instruments when I concentrate on a specific one. The sound of instruments is well rounded and pleasing to my ears. Also, I could not hear any noise at all. It simply sounded wonderful to me.” Oliver

Who doesn’t like to get positive feedback on one’s efforts. I want to thank those of you who took the time to download the files and write with your thoughts. How could I stop doing what I do, when I know that there are lots of AIX fans waiting for the next release.

Thanks again and please keep your comments coming.
