  Virtual everyone within the high-end audio community agrees that 2019 was a banner year for our industry! There were a record number of well-attended events all around the world... for starters. Manufacturers are holding a record number of smaller events at their dealers' locations as well. New products you ask? Again, during 2019 there were a record number of new products launched from both major and boutique consumer hi-fi electronics companies. The above list are just Enjoy the Music.com's reports during 2019, as we have over 240 high-end audio show reports online to date.

 

 

Those who attended Munich's major HIGH END event during 2019 were privy to seeing "Enjoy The Music" everywhere they went.  :)

Hi-Res Music Finally 'Arrives' In 2019!
While for some it may seem new, quite a few of us envisioned Hi-Res Music on the Internet since the 1990s. Most of us were using dial-up to connect to the web back then, so streaming Hi-Res was not possible as Napster's lossy MP3 took hold. Major music labels, slow to react, were left in the dust. With today's faster Internet connection and the ability to heavily data-mine by the music industry, there's no doubt Qobuz and Amazon will be joined by other major music streaming services during 2020 for those who desire true lossless Hi-Res Music.

Those enjoying Deezer have both good and bad news. The good news is that they now offer lossless CD quality on desktop, and for both Android and iOS apps. The bad news, it is still just circa 1980s CD sound quality. Of course small boutique online music labels have been offering true Hi-Res Music for quite a few years. HDtracks has been selling Hi-Res Music for many years now. Will Apple, Tencent, and perhaps TikTok finally join the ranks of music services to provide true lossless Hi-Res Music streaming? Only time will tell.

 

And this brings us to...

 

 

2020 Marks Enjoy the Music.com's 25th Anniversary
(Phew) Has it really been 25 years since Enjoy the Music.com was launched on the Internet? Some of our readers are not quite 25 years old, and we're hiring new reviewers who are less than 25 too! While a quarter of a century is not that a long a time from the perspective of the age of our universe, we are happy to be one of the most longstanding authorities on the Internet. In fact the world's very first high-end audio show report online was by Enjoy the Music.com's Creative Director Steven R. Rochlin. With well over 240 show reports online and over 20 year of industry news, to name a few things, it is always interesting to look back at where we were, where we are right now, and of course where we want to be during 2020 and beyond. I look forward to you joining us for 2020 as we celebrate our very special 25th anniversary.

As always in the end what really matters is that you...

 

Enjoy the Music,

Steven R. Rochlin
