A Recent Review from Home Entertainment Magazine - Show-Offs

Longtime readers should already be well aware of my undying love for AIX Records. The company's award-winning, multi-disc DVD-Audio/Video releases continue to be without question, the most pristine recordings these ears have every heard. Enjoying them completely also continues to be an aerobic exercise, with high-resolution stereo and surround sound audio relegated to one side of a disc, and beautifully filmed studio performances (accompanied by compressed DTS and Dolby Digital audio) to the other.

Needless to say, AIX President Dr. Mark Waldrep was merely ahead of his time. Now, with the advent of Blu-ray disc, his high-definition, high-resolution audio/video recording are finally getting the exhibition they deserve. Customers who purchase Oppo's new BDP-83 Blu-ray Disc Player w/SACD and DVD-Audio are treated to an early taste of AIX's output on Blu-ray. A more comprehensive sampler should be available from aixrecords.com not long a after this issue goes to print, with full release quickly following. But no matter what package it comes in, you simply must experience Carl Verheyen's beautiful solo acoustic rendition of "Henry's Farm."

Leave your display on and soak in the gorgeous video, or turn it off for a more proper high-fidelity audio experience - either way, from the very first note your head will be filled with visions of fretted ebony and phosphor bronze strings. The only way you're going to get any closer to an actual guitar is to hold one yourself. The 7.1 channels of Dolby TrueHD audio aren't packed with discrete seconds so mush as diverse textures; every note is a four-course meal of timbres packed into a single bite. The midrange bathes you, and the high end practically polishes the molecules of air between the speakers and your seat, as the piece builds to a passionate crescendo and quickly pulls back to a gentle whisper - as lovely a display of the dying art of dynamic range as you're likely to hear on any recording anytime soon. - Dennis Burger/November 2009.

 Dolby Laboratories and AIX Records have assembled this Blu-ray disc of incredible HD Music to help demonstrate the power and incomparable sound of high definition, surround music encoded and delivered using Dolby True HD technology.

The tracks on this disc allow you to experience different genres of music at a whole new level of fidelity and engagement. You'll be able to hear music across the entire frequency spectrum from deep rich bass tones to delicate extended highs and experience real world dynamic range unaltered by processors typically used during recording, mixing and mastering. Playing the tracks on this BD disc will help listeners realize that music reproduction can be dramatically better than CDs or MP3 soundfiles.

Imagine the performers on this demonstration disc sitting in your listening room playing a private concert just for you … that's what it sounds like.

AIX Records offer special thanks for Dolby Laboratories, Netblender and Inlet Technologies for their generous support of this project.
