CEPro Deep Dive 2022 Home Entertainment Report
With younger music, movie, and video gamer lovers combining their luxury audio and home theater system, CEPro's recent report shows that an impressive 67% of them will be using it for immersive audio. Due to the recent laboratory virus leak that has greatly affected humans on Earth, CEPro's Deep Dive 2022 says, "The most difficult equipment to obtain are pre-amps, processors,
AVRs, media servers, controls/interfaces, Blu-ray disc players, mounts/screens/seating and other associated gear. Those unfinished theaters represent real lost money, as dealers struck gold in terms of being able to elevate their home entertainment installation price points. For dedicated theaters, which can include basements in some cases, the average enduser price charged in 2021 was a healthy $50,357. That is an incredible 77% increase compared with 2020, when the average price point for a dedicated theater was

Enjoying The Music
Roger Skoff writes about what it's all about.
By Roger Skoff
all read this publication; I even write for it, but have you ever thought about
what our title actually means? For example, is "Enjoy the Music" an offer? Or an
encouragement? Does it refer to any particular kind or genre of music? Or to the
people who play it? Or to the gear that – if we listen in recorded form – it's played on? Is the emphasis on the music? Or on the enjoyment? Or is there
not any emphasis at all? Should there be? And, if so, what? In the just-short-of 150 years since the
invention of the phonograph and, coming with it, our first ability to record
sound and make it into an enduring artifact, both music and the ways that people
have experienced, enjoyed, and participated in it have changed radically>

Chip Fab Supply Chain Delays
What's delaying new chip fabs to reinforce the supply chain?
Yep... the supply chain.
Article By Ted Green, Chief Content Creator For
Ever since supply chain shortages
hit many industries, particularly in relation to the availability of integrated
circuits or chips, there has been a massive scramble to increase capacity and to
build new chip fabricating facilities (fabs) or factories. There has been a
series of announcements from huge companies like Intel, Taiwan Semiconductor
Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), Samsung, and others launching massive multi-billion
projects to add more chip production facilities. There's just one problem... the equipment they need to build
these facilities are themselves delayed.

Seven Myths Of Digital Audio Dispelled
Be open minded and don't assume anything.
Article By Arjuna Das, Owner Of Mojo Audio
in high-end audio is a compromise. No typology is best at everything. Every
typology has its advantages and disadvantages. Digital is no different. Despite
popular belief, there is not one type of DAC, quantization method, or CODEC,
which is ideal for all situations, or better in all ways than others. Each has
their advantages and disadvantages, and certain ones work better in certain
situations. Over the years I have heard and read all sorts of myths and
misconceptions regarding digital audio. I hope to dispel the seven most common
categories of myths. I'm going to attempt to explain each typology in layman's
terms so that all of you can decide for yourselves what compromises you want to
