A Very Encouraging Email
As many of your already know, being the founder and chief engineer of a small, no compromise audiophile media label (I hesitate to say record label because we produce products that have videos as well) is not a great way to become rich. Most of the people that do what I do are passionate about music and do it for the love of music. AIX Records and iTrax.com are labors of love for me. I dedicate a lot of my time fighting against the standard music industry practices that have commoditized their products and virtually sucked the life from an art form that I appreciate above all others.

There are payoffs. We've won numerous awards, great reviews and recognition since we started all those years ago. But it's the regular flow of comments from customers that means the most to me. Not a day goes by that someone discovers our little label and feels compelled to write or call with compliments on our recordings. Here's a recent one…

"Wow, I just found your site, and am very impressed.

I have been interested in high-end audio for many years but have never been happy with the sound quality from CD's, despite spending tens of thousands on the best possible speakers, amplifiers and players. When SACD came out I auditioned it and immediately knew that higher sample rate digital media was the answer to my frustrations (assuming the underlying master is good enough). Unfortunately the available media was extremely limited and not to my taste. It is no surprise the format failed.

After some recent research I found out that high quality music download sites have started appearing. The first few I found were frustrating, the same crappy music selection like SACD (dominated by classical), and even more infuriating were the sites that are banned for people outside US. Why they'd exclude themselves from a global market is beyond comprehension.

Finally, I found your site and was impressed with the range of content and also the ease of access. I loaded some files into iTunes and played through my system and was immediately bowled over by the quality. I was not reaching to turn the amp down due to the usual CD harshness.

I will buy all of my music on your site from now on. I encourage you to focus on building the largest possible library of media across all genres (However I agree with your policy not to upsample lower quality masters). I think you have the core ingredients of an incredibly successful business. I also encourage you to promote the business widely in the HiFi magazines and forums, and also in the broader media. I don't want to see this business fail because of lack of awareness.

The only suggestion for improvement I have is easier iTunes integration of full track description (title, artist, album, track number, artwork) and a one button download button if I buy a full album instead of a separate button for each track. I can live with these shortcomings because the sound is so good. But please consider in the longer term.
"

EXPERTS AGREE

  • "I worry about sound quality and old ways of the industry. Up-sampled CDs, play-everything consumer machines and lawyers killed the DVDA. The tragic consequence was much like humanity creating the first wheel and breaking it apart so it would not roll away. Many titles in vaults have sonic losses from compression and sampling that can’t be recovered. Yet, surely, there will be re-issues even though high resolution will not improve them. Some reviewers use analyzers to spot these marketed imposters."

    Keith O. Johnson, Chief Engineer and Technical Director, Reference Recordings

  • "It's good to know there are still some labels left dedicated to making high quality surround recordings. I applaud you for educating people about what is and isn't HD (analog tape/vinyl being an example that isn't HD)."

    Dr. Sean E. Olive / Director of Acoustic Research/Corporate R&D.
