In Prizes Will Be Given Away!
(June 22, 2012) Enjoy the
Music.com, in concert with over 35 prominent manufacturers of high-end audio equipment, formally announces a high-end
gear giveaway that will see over $89,750 in total prizes in the hands of sound enthusiasts everywhere. This exciting contest is aimed squarely at the growing number of music enthusiasts who realize that popular MP3 music files
simply can't deliver the full sonic potential of today's best artists. The contest
isn't just about prizes, either, as it is equally aimed at educating consumers about the real benefits of high-end audio products.
This comparatively small and performance-driven market segment benefits from the talents of passionate engineers and designers who concentrate on delivering the most accurate and enjoyable sound quality possible, usually without the large advertising budgets that could inform consumers of their accomplishments.
That's why many artisan manufacturers have joined forces with Enjoy
the Music.com to structure this contest that gives away tens of thousands of dollars in prizes.
Of course, high-end consumers want the best equipment they can find. Often, however, investment-grade components can strain even the most generous budget.
That's why this contest features many performance-driven components that are far less costly than some but deliver
nearly the same level of sound quality. Enjoy the Music.com's High End Audio Contest celebrates those who truly love music and seek ways to achieve a more fulfilling experience.
Said another way, to bring the joy of finely-reproduced music to the widest possible audience.
"This exciting effort will educate consumers on the benefits of audiophile-grade products," said Steven R. Rochlin, editor and creative director of
Enjoy the Music.com. "With so many recent improvements in technology combined with musical artists now offering their music in easily-downloadable 24-bit/192kHz file formats, people around the world can now
truly connect with their music. This new $89,750 contest adds to the over $135,000 in prizes offered in the past and capitalizes on the recent advances in both the recording studio and in playback equipment. Now, the sound quality once reserved for the musicians themselves and those directly involved in the recording
studio is available to all at a fraction of yesterday's prices."
Steven R. Rochlin pointed again to the drastically increased availability of high definition files that bring the excitement of full-range audio to anyone with access to the web.
"That's why education is so important," he said, "because the web makes choosing quality so easy. Our job, then, is to tell the consumer why quality matters, especially in music. High-end audio matters because we want everyone to hear
all the music as the musical artist intended and this contest makes that
possible. Or put simply: High-end audio, because you want to hear
all the music."
