Enjoy the Music.com Review Magazine
...To The Fountain Of Lamneth.

  Welcome to our August 2003 edition of the Enjoy the Music.com Review Magazine and we have much to celebrate! This edition begins our fifth year in monthly publication. While Enjoy the Music.com has been around for a much longer time, the Review Magazine came about from our readership's desire for an alternative viewpoint within the high-end audio community. We are not looking to boost our own egos, nor spread vicious gossip on the Internet. Nor are we going use our voice to payback those that may have wronged us. Just because someone has past experience in the industry does not mean it is right to start a website to attack other or stretch our proverbial "muscles". While such controversy may make for good reading and gossip, it only adds to lowering oneself to a lesser level.

It is sad enough to rear about such things as Mr. Mark Levinson re-branding gear, yet selling it at many more times the initial price. Sadder still to learn about the recent demise of Tag McLaren Audio Ltd. (see our Industry News page for details). Sometimes separating fact from perception can be a challenge. Information, no matter if it is true or not, can spread like wildfire on the Internet. Naturally many great things can come about from fast delivery of information.

Scam artists that once could hide and rely on the slow process of legacy print media now can be found out almost instantly. The Internet provides a place to warn others in minutes rather than the months it takes for print media to make available. The same can be said for music and equipment reviews. No longer does one need to wait many months to read new product reviews. Some may say all is fair in love and war, yet to go out of one's way to find clone products to review or unfairly reduce the reputation of a company is not what many would consider proper etiquette. It may make for good reading and controversy, yet at what costs?

Many years ago the very talented audio amplifier designer Nelson Pass would gladly donate the schematics to various amplifier designs for the DIY community to enjoy. Alas, it only took one person to use said schematics to make a commercial product and attempt to sell it to the public at large for Nelson to discontinue offering his genius to others. While this manufacturer did nothing completely illegal, it begs the question of ethics versus staying just towards the legal side of a full-blown lawsuit do to intellectual property theft.


Superiority Has Its Privileges

As we here at Enjoy the Music.com celebrate the fifth year in publication of our Review Magazine, this month also marks the launching of our Superior Audio section. As this subject was extensively covered in last month's editorial, i shall move on to other subjects. In the coming months we have many more world premiere reviews and many show reports. While i have not mentioned the Enjoy the Music.com browser recently, have been tweaking it since the first release back in May of 1999. By the time you read this development will be further tweaked and tuned. So what advantage do you have in installing our browser? Basically, it is a subtle tweak to Internet Explorer where audiophile related links are added in your Favorites folder. While no major changes are made to your already tweaked IE browser, it will provide you with many links to worldwide Internet hotspots for audiophiles. If you already use IE, please take a few minutes to install the Enjoy the Music.com browser.

As always, i would like to take a moment to thank you, our loyal readers. For it is you who helps make all this possible. Of course in the end what really matters is that you...


Enjoy the Music (Rush "The Fountain of Lamneth" right now),

"I am born;
I am me.
I am new.
I am free.

Look at me;
I am young.
Sight unseen;
Life unsung. 

My eyes have just been opened and they're open very wide.
Images around me don't identify inside.
Just one blur I recognize; the one that soothes and feeds.
My way of life is easy and simple are my needs. 

Yet my eyes are drawn toward the mountain in the East.
Fascinates and captivates; gives my heart no peace. 
The mountain holds the sunrise in the prison of the night,
Till bursting forth from rocky chains the valley floods with light. 

Living one long sunrise, for to me all things are new.
I've never watched the sky grow pale or strolled through fields of dew. 
I do not know of dust to dust.
I live from breath to breath.
I live to climb that mountain... to the Fountain of Lamneth."
