Sonic Studio Improves Music Playback at CES

Company’s partners showcase Amarra as their ultra–fidelity source

Las Vegas – January 7, 2010 — Gear, gadgets and innovative technology will take center stage at the 43rd annual Consumer Electronic Show. Sonic Studio, LLC will be exhibiting at both CES and concurrently at T.H.E. Show, improving musical enjoyment in conjunction with several partners who have chosen Sonic Studio’s technology to complement their products.

Companies staging public demonstrations that leverage Sonic Studio expertise include:

• Audio Plus Services
• Ayre Acoustics, Inc.
• dCS America
• MBL of America
• SimpliFi Audio
• Weiss Engineering Ltd.

Sonic Studio products making an appearance at CES include Amarra, software for easy computer playback of very high resolution files, and the Model 4(tm) FireWire DAC. Amarra provides an analog-like source for the already exceptional assemblage of high fidelity gear in each partner’s exhibit.

The Amarra Computer Music

Player(tm) combines the precision of the SSE(tm) (Sonic Studio Engine) with the easy operation of iTunes. When coupled with the power of Sonic Studio hardware, Amarra provides the ultimate ultra–fidelity playback system. Amarra version 1.2 will be shown publicly for the first time since its release. The new version of Amarra brings improved fidelity and new playlist support for seamless and uninterrupted playback.

Sonic Studio’s Model 4 is an eight channel digital–to–analog converter (DAC) that combines very high fidelity circuitry with embedded DSP for minimal phase room correction or 3–way crossover realization. Its FireWire interface ensures transparent playback of PCM and lossless files sampled at up to 192 kHz. The Model 4 will be at SimpliFi Audio’s suite, where they will be showing a special, low frequency crossover using Sonic EQ(tm).

“In less than a year, Amarra has become recognized for its superb musical reproduction abilities, all from a computer. Some of the top names in high end consumer audio appreciate its ability to play back files without coloring or degradation,” said Jonathan Reichbach, president of Sonic Studio. “Once again, we look forward to contributing uncommonly high fidelity sound from a computer-based system for our partners and all the audio enthusiasts visiting this year’s CES.”
