There is no doubt that 2014 has been an amazing year for everyone within the high-end audio industry! Our enthusiastic niche within the consumer electronics industry is flourishing as companies are achieving record sales volume. Speaking of records, the LP is once again showing incredible resilience alongside this modern world of 192kHz/24-bit digitized audio. The high fidelity audio industry is filled with genius craftspeople, artists, and engineers who put their immense passion, experience, and talent together to achieve a common goal. And that goal is to further our enjoyment of music.
In 2014, Enjoy the Music.com also brought the industry's first, and still only, live streaming of shows to enthusiasts all around the world. Now everyone around the globe with an Internet connection can learn about the many incredible products launched at these events. Furthermore, there is live chat and Twitter integration so someone in England, China, Italy... or the Fiji Islands can ask questions about the products we are featuring within our live broadcast. In 2015 we plan to live stream CES, AXPONA, T.H.E. Show Newport Beach, RMAF, CAS and perhaps two or three others. With swiftness of speed and mobility, it only takes a few days to form an agreement and then setup our mobile studio to live broadcast an luxury goods or music concert anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Our nearly spur-of-the-moment agreement with all-around great guy Chad Kassem of Acoustic Sounds solidifies this point as we delivered their first broadcast of the incredible Blues Masters at the Crossroads concert. Of course a live stream is still not a perfect substitute to actually being there, yet it brings live worldwide events right into the comfort of your home, office, or anywhere you may be given one's constantly busy schedule.
