You spoke … We listened
For the last year, many of you have asked us numerous times for
high-resolution audio downloads using Direct Stream Digital (DSD).
Well, after countless hours of research and development,
we’re thrilled to announce our new high-resolution service www.superhirez.com.
Acoustic Sounds’ new music download service debuts with a
selection of
mainstream audiophile music using the most advanced audio technology available…DSD.
It’s the same digital technology used to produce SACDs and to our ears,
it most closely replicates the analog experience.
They’re audio files for audiophiles.
Of course, we’ll also offer audio downloads in other high-resolution PCM formats.
We all like to listen to music. But when Acoustic Sounds’ customers speak, we really listen.

FEATURED STORIES
More big news!
Thanks to such support from so many great customers, we’ve been able to use this space in our catalogs to regularly announce exciting developments. We’re growing – in size and scope – all possible
because of your business. I told you not too long ago about our move from 6,000 square feet to 18,000
square feet. And then again about our move to 70,000 square feet. Then it was the big news about our
new pressing plant, Quality Record Pressings.
Now we’re taking on the new audiophile frontier: hi-res downloads. Introducing our new Acoustic
Sounds Super HiRez store (www.superhirez.com). We’re the first to market with major-label, mainstream DSD downloads, and we also offer the highest-quality PCM files. Customers have been calling
me and stopping me at shows for the past couple of years, asking, “When is someone going to have
DSD downloads of the music that you reissue on LP and SACD?” Well, now you can find both DSD and
PCM downloads for the likes of Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke, the Counting Crows, Shelby Lynne, Rickie Lee
Jones, Nat “King” Cole, Miles Davis and on and on. We’ve struck deals with the majors, and we’re adding more titles to the site daily. Stay tuned to watch the selection explode. We’re also contracting with
several independent labels and artists to include an even greater variety.
We’ve developed a comprehensive getting-started guide to walk the first-time user through the entire
process of enjoying hi-res downloads. And we’ve got all of the equipment and software you’d need to
get started. Everything but the computer is available at Super HiRez.
This was a massive undertaking for our company, both in expense and time. But so many of you asked
for this, and we’re proud to be able to bring it to you. Please see page 2 to learn more about Super
HiRez. And of course make sure you head to www.superhirez.com.
I can hear some of you worrying – are we moving away from vinyl and SACDs? Absolutely not! I’m a
vinyl guy, first and foremost. It’s still how I enjoy almost all of my music, and it’s still what fuels my passion for this business. We just started a pressing plant, for crying out loud. And we still sell more SACDs
than anyone in the world. None of that is changing. We simply wanted to add to our mission to be the
best music store in the world. Quality remains the overarching principle to all of what we do. Do not
worry: Your records and SACDs aren’t going anywhere.
In fact, concerning vinyl, we’ve got more huge news: Acoustic Sounds is now the U.S. importer for SME
turntables. SME is of course renowned for the precision and craftsmanship they put into their turntables and tonearms. They create truly special, audiophile-grade products. Each component part for
SME turntables and tonearms are manufactured in-house using the most advanced CNC machining,
pressure die-casting, injection molding, metal finishing, electro-plating and anodizing to ensure the
resulting product will provide a lifetime of listening pleasure. See the products on page 64.

I’m sorry to end this on a sad note, but we want to pay deserving tribute to our very dear friend Clark
Williams, who passed away at age 50 this summer. Clark worked at Acoustic Sounds for nearly nine
years over two stints, and he was amazingly talented at turntable setup, building a system on a budget, evaluating recordings and recommending music. He was a blast to have around, and we all miss
him greatly. Please read our tribute to Clark on page 10.

SUPER HiREZ
audio files for audiophiles
Acoustic Sounds’ Super HiRez
service fueling audio revolution
- By Dave Migdal
There’s a quiet revolution taking place in the audiophile
community.
Just as high-definition television (HDTV) changed the
way we watch television, high-resolution audio is redefining the way we listen to music. And Acoustic Sounds,
the worldwide leader in audiophile recordings, is leading the charge.
Acoustic Sounds recently launched Superhirez.com,
the first digital music download service to feature a
broad spectrum of mainstream albums using the most
advanced audio technology available….Direct Stream
Digital (DSD). It’s the same digital technology used to
produce SACDs, and to the collective ears at Acoustic
Sounds, it’s the format that most closely replicates the
analog experience.
Make no mistake, Super HiRez is about providing music lovers access to high-quality music in a convenient,
easy-to-use fashion. The website features guides, tutorials and other information geared to making the downloading of albums as seamless as possible.
But it’s also about giving audiophiles alternatives to
MP3 and other lower-resolution formats. While Acoustic
Sounds is partial to DSD, albums are also available in hires PCM formats such as ALAC and FLAC.
The top selling albums so far include “Just a Little
Lovin’” by Shelby Lynne, “August and Everything After”
by Counting Crows, “The Very Thought of You” by Nat
“King” Cole, “Come Away with Me” by Norah Jones and
2
“We Take Requests” by the Oscar Peterson Trio.
“People have been asking me for months to create a hires digital download service,” said Chad Kassem, the
owner and CEO of Acoustic Sounds. “The launch of Super
HiRez was simply a matter a listening to what consumers
were asking for and giving them what they want.”
After launching in late August with 35 albums (Mostly
from Acoustic Sounds’ Analogue Productions label), the
digital music download service is expected to feature
between 300-500 albums by the end of 2013. Deals have
already been made with Sony Music and Universal Music Group, providing U.S. consumers access to both companies’ vast libraries of music mastered in DSD. Deals
are also in the works to expand the reach of Super HiRez
to Canada in the fall/winter timeframe. Other international markets may follow in 2014.
And the early reviews from audiophiles and even nonaudiophiles have been outstanding.
Mike Snider of USA Today, who covered the launch of
Super HiRez, shared his initial thoughts of the service and
Norah Jones’ “Little Broken Hearts” with the newspaper’s
3.2 million daily readers: “Compared with the standard
CD, the DSD download had richer sound — and much
more warmth than the portable version on my iPod.”
Similar sentiments have been expressed by the audiophile media, but the revolution doesn’t begin and end
there.
In fact, just days after the launch of the Super HiRez, the
Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) announced its
support for high-resolution audio (HRA in CEA parlance)
and stated it would be one of the focal points during
the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show. CEA research found
acousticsounds.com | 800.716.3553
SUPER HiREZ
that nine in 10 consumers say sound quality is the most
important component of a quality audio experience,
along with compelling content (85 percent).
CEA research has also confirmed that audio buyers and
potential buyers focus on quality as a critical purchase
factor, second only to price.
As if a blessing from the CEA wasn’t enough, its news
was followed by the introduction of several high-resolution audio products from Sony Electronics. Kassem and
Marc Sheforgen, the COO of Acoustic Sounds, were recognized at Sony’s press event at Lincoln Center in New
York, and Super HiRez was mentioned as one of the pre-
ferred destinations for digital downloads.
We’re talking about some serious industry momentum
here, folks.
But whether it’s a global association, a major player in the
consumer electronics industry, or an audiophile company
in Salina, Kan., high-resolution audio comes down to providing music lovers with an immersive experience as an
alternative to MP3, along with the power to choose the
digital formats that suits them best.
That’s Super HiRez. And it’s simply revolutionary.

CLARK WILLIAMS
1962 - 2013
numerous awards. Clark also was perhaps the most instrumental person in
encouraging Chad Kassem to start Quality Record Pressings, now widely
considered to be the world’s finest pressing plant.
Clark made the workplace fun – a lot of fun. He worked for Acoustic Sounds
first in the 1990s for a couple of years, and then again from 2004 to 2011. His
antics were never ending. He teased the people who needed it most, and he
wasn’t afraid to be relentless. He really, really was like a big kid. And he had this
whole cool combination of Cajun colloquialisms (he’s from Houma, Louisiana –
born and raised) and casual style. It was, well, fun…and funny. And his memory…
Clark had a freakishly good memory. Right up to the end, he could recall with
lightning quickness the funniest stories having to do with the people with whom
he was visiting.
O
ur dear friend and coworker Clark Williams passed away early Saturday,
August 24, 2013, following his yearlong struggle with cancer. Clark was only 50.
Clark would have said he “snuffed it.” Cause that’s the sort of thing he said when
someone died. Not because he was flippant about it or didn’t care – far, far from
it. No, it’s just one of the many unique little ways or sayings he had about him
that’ll make those of us who knew him well miss him so.
There’s no conveying through writing who Clark was. He had a special style
about him, entirely his own. And it was infectious. He was hilarious. He was
extraordinarily talented. He was independent. He was passionate. And he was
cool. Above all, he was unique – and memorable. Maybe among the best things
you could say about a person.
Through the prism of Acoustic Sounds, it’s important to describe in more detail
just how talented this man was. There’s not been a better ear. We might grant
you an equal, but we ain’t coming off that statement of nobody better. ‘Cause it’s
the truth. Clark was flat-out gifted in the way that he could listen to music. His
ability to hear what was taking place in a recording was incomparable. And
that’s what we do at Acoustic Sounds. We sell music to audiophiles – people who
want to hear the best sound that recording and playback technology can deliver
– and we ourselves are audiophiles. Clark was better than all of us at diagnosing
what sounded good – or bad – and why.
More importantly, he had fun doing what he was good at. This whole business
of people being ate up with their high-end stereo being better than the next
guy’s, or using a stereo as a status symbol was silly to Clark. What Clark cared
about was: Does it sound good to you? And, does it sound better than what you
had before? He urged people to trust their ear, to not take it too seriously. To
love what they were doing. Otherwise, he’d likely have said, do something else.
And, man, did his customers trust him. Equipment manufacturers, too. A lot of
people tapped into his talent and reaped the rewards of his recommendations.
He was a whiz at turntable setup, at system compatibility, at building systems
to fit various budgets. Oh, and he could turn people on to music from various
eras and genres. He never subscribed to the shortsighted, unimaginative
curmudgeon philosophy of “there’s no good new music or recordings.” Nonsense.
His stereo wasn’t stuck in the ‘70s and ‘80s – the era of his youth. He enjoyed a
healthy variety.
Clark made major professional contributions to Acoustic Sounds and to the
industry at large. In 2006, he co-produced The Ultimate Analogue Test LP – a
record that lived up to its name in helping people set up their turntables for
optimal playback. The record has become the industry standard and has won
From left to right: Chad Kassem, Clark Williams, Chad Stelly
He was something of a renaissance man – into yoga, cars, fishing, investments,
running, whiskey, art, guns, marksmanship, food, travel, live music and whatever
else we’re leaving out. If it was fun, he probably dug it.
And he had found his suitable copilot these past seven-or-so years – his wife,
Kate. They were adventurers together, and they did their best to set the world
on fire with the time that they had. Clark retired from Acoustic Sounds in 2011,
and he and Kate moved to what Clark called “the redneck Rockies” – northwest
Arkansas. It was an area – the Ozarks – where they had loved to camp, explore
and relax. They got set up in what they called their “tree house” and got down
to some good living.
The cancer came on strong and advanced – brain tumors – August of last year.
It was a hell of a seesaw from there. Clark’s wife, Kate, maintained one of the
most inspiring, informative and regrettably tragic journals one might imagine
via their Caring Bridge page throughout the ordeal. Eventually, after enjoying
two brief periods of having been supposedly cancer free, more tumors cropped
up – on the other side of Clark’s brain. It was curtains – that’s what Clark might
have said. He was admitted to Hospice and a few days ago returned to his home
as he’d wished. Clark died exactly one year from the day of his first diagnosis.
Clark’s steady message throughout his sickness – and actually even before he
was sick – was to value time. “That’s what I don’t have,” he said. “I can make more
money, but I can’t make more time.” He told those who’d listen to hug their kids,
to dance with their wives, to go places, to do the things they wanted to do.
Sage advice, wouldn’t you say?

Cut at Sterling Sound directly
from the original master tape.
This was a straight transfer,
bypassing the console altogether. There was no EQ of
any kind. A true direct transfer, using a VMS 80, the most
sophisticated lathe. You’re
hearing the master tape!
Phoebe Snow died at the
age of 60, but her art will
live forever. Her debut album,
reproduced here, witnesses
a masterful nine-track lineup.
Most of the songs were
written by a 23-year old
Phoebe Snow, including her
best-known smash hit “Poetry
Man. Snow was renowned
for her elastic contralto and
jazz scat vocals; this album
became as legendary as
her career, which spanned
decades.

Robert Cray is a musician
that critics describe as
one of the all-time great
blues guitarists, and small
wonder. They go on to say
that Strong Persuader “introduced a new generation of
mainstream rock fans to the
language and form of the
blues.” As much as anyone
next to Stevie Ray Vaughan,
Cray helped the blues not
only survive, but thrive, says
Acoustic Sounds’ owner
Chad Kassem.
American composer,
musicologist and guitar
legend Ry Cooder teams
with North Indian musician
Vishwa Mohan Bhatt to create
an exquisite musical realm,
with both musicians playing
exceptional slide guitar. Their
collaboration evokes musical
elements from many cultures
and styles. Percussion by
Sukhvindar Singh on tabla
and Cooder’s 14-year-old
son Joachim on dumbek.
This recording won a
Grammy Award.

AMUSED TO DEATH
Amused To Death
AAPP 468761 - $49.98
CAPP 468761 SA - $30.00
“Amused to Death is a solid album both
conceptually and musically, showcasing
Waters as an artist who, like his work
with Pink Floyd, conveys his thoughts and
ideals with pinpoint accuracy so that they
are engraved within his audience’s mind.
With this album, Waters touches heavily on
the dangers of capitalism, the insensitivity
of the human race, the ridiculousness of
war, and the onslaught of mindless entertainment that encroaches on mankind on
a day-to-day basis.” - All Music Guide

Classic 1968 debut album
features “Born To Be Wild”
and “The Pusher”
“Ted Nugent, is a prime slice
of testosterone-heavy, raging,
unapologetic rock & roll, and
along with the band’s 1977
release Cat Scratch Fever, it
is Nugent’s best solo studio
album. While the grinding
opening track, “Stranglehold,” stretches beyond eight
minutes and contains several
extended, fiery-hot guitar
leads, it does not come off as
your typical ‘70s overindulgent fare -- every single note
counts, as Nugent wails away
as if his life depended on it.”

Beyond The 4 Walls is the
triumphant return of the
Campbell Brothers to studio
recording. It’s been too many
years. Since they were first
heard outside their church,
almost 15 years ago, the
Campbell Brothers have been
on an incredible and often
arduous journey, finding their
way, balancing their faith with
their desire to take their music
to new audiences.
When Man Child hit the
market in 2009, blues lovers
freaked out partly because
of how young Marquise was
to be sounding like such
an aged veteran. Well, he’s
still awfully young, but this
time around, the focus ought
to be entirely on just how
incredible a bluesman Marquise Knox is, age aside.

The Blade Runner soundtrack
was composed by Vangelis
for Ridley Scott’s 1982 film
considered one of the finest scifi movies ever made. It is mostly
a dark, melodic combination
of classical compositions and
synthesizers which mirrors the
futuristic film noir envisioned
by Scott. The soundtrack holds
legendary status and at the time
was well-received by fans and
critics including Best Original
Score nominations for a BAFTA
and Golden Globe yet, except
for a few cuts, it was not released
until 1994.

Love Me.”

“How does one recover enough
to hear an album in its entirety when the first cut is ‘In
Dreams’? Whoa! Roy Orbison’s
1963 album of the same name,
recorded for the Monument
label, is devastating for a number of reasons, namely that his
‘Blue Bayou’ and his readings
of Johnny Mercer’s ‘Dreams’
and Stephen Foster’s ‘Beautiful
Dreamer’ are here, as is his
gorgeous reading of Cindy
Walker’s ‘Shahdaroba.’ Half
of these cuts were recorded
during the sessions for Sings
Lonely and Blue, the other half
in Nash Vegas in 1963 with
Fred Foster producing both.”
— All Music Guide
“Time and familiarity — through
multiple reissues — may have
muted the seeming significance
of some of what’s here, but in
1960 Sings Lonely and Blue
was not only a breakthrough
for Roy Orbison as his debut
LP, but also for rock ‘n’ roll. Up
to that point, apart from Elvis
Presley — who was in a class
by himself — few white rock ‘n’
rollers had even tried to make
as bold a use of the LP as what
we hear on this record.”

“These three works of Bizet
are all well-performed,
and two of them are
completely unique...This
is the very first recording
of Bizet’s Jeux D’Enfants
which brings us all dozen
of the pieces in the original
piano-four-hands collection,
transcribed for playing by a
full orchestra...The Variations
chromatiques here receives
its CD premiere.” -- John
Sunier, Audiophile Audition
Charles Denler’s multiple
Emmy Award-winning music
for film and television is
known worldwide, and his
orchestral works have been
played by top orchestras.
Charles’ classical training and
strong proficiency with contemporary sound allow him
great flexibility and versatility
as a composer and pianist.
On this album, the Colorado
Symphony and Chorus perform his tuneful and evocative
music with great style.

The stunning and powerful

selling Queens Of The Stone
Age is back in print! Remixed
and remastered with three
bonus tracks to boot. Guitarist/
vocalist Josh Homme, drummer Alfredo Hernandez and
bassist/mystery man Carlo Von
Sextron deliver the goods on
this incredibly influential album. A classic in the pantheon of rock.
“... Like Clockwork (Matador)
is the best and most focused
Queens album since Songs for
the Deaf in 2002. The drummer (Dave Grohl) and bassist
(Nick Oliveri) on that album are
back in part-time roles, and
they help anchor what is one
of the more consistent batch of
songs Homme has authored.
The key is not just the band’s
ability to paralyze with power
or to space out with stoner-rock
psychedelia, but its willingness
to infuse its melodies with
vulnerability and a disquieting
fragility.” — Chicago Tribune

In the late 1940s, the
pioneering Decca
recording engineers
perfected a new set of
microphone techniques that
allowed the
full range of frequencies to be fully
heard by listeners for
the first time, and the term
‘full frequency range recording’
was launched. It was a major
revolution in sound quality, and
the beginnings of high fidelity.
Perfected with the birth of stereo in the mid-1950s, Decca’s
‘Full Frequency Stereophonic Sound’ became a worldwide
hallmark of sonic excellence and a golden age of classical recorded music was born.
The Analogue Years presents six LPs on 180-gram vinyl from those celebrated international recordings that
emerged from the London-based record label in that

TURNTABLES / KUZMA
KUZMA
Kuzma’s biggest turntable, Stabi XL, is the latest offering in their bid to achieve
the goal of perfect analogue sound. It represents the culmination of 20 years
research, development and experience in the production of turntables and tonearms. Theoretically the aim was simple, ie. to spin the record in the nearest possible way to the master and to enable the tonearm to emulate the cutter head.
*Tonearm Not Included
4 motor with VTA and motor controller
T STABIXL4V - $30,275.00
FEATURED KUZMA EQUIPMENT
STABI S
4 POINT TONEARM
The heart of the new construction is a unique 4-point bearing. The first
set of of two points (similar to a unipivot bearing) allows vertical movement. The second set of two points allows horizontal movment. All four
points have minimal friction and zero play in all playing directions thus
ensuring the cartridge platform and the cartridge itself move with very
low friction and minimal vibration across the record.
“...I think the Kuzma 4Point
pushed more energy down the
pipeline. It sounded closer to
the sound of the tape than any
other arm I’ve heard...the Kuzma
4Point may be the finest tonearm out there, period.”
- Michael Fremer, Stereophile
Stabi S is Kuzma’s smallest turntable with a design approach normally
found only in more expensive models. Its unique shape and construction of solid brass rods, provide an extremely rigid connection to platter, bearing and tonearm support. Includes electronic speed controller.

STOGI S12 VTA TONEARM
This is of a unipivot design with a unique, rigid headshell made from
a solid aluminum block and a base of solid brass that control all the
vibration and facilitate stability of the tonearm as a whole.
Wires are in one uninterrupted piece
from headshell to RCA phono connectors. By special order, wiring can also
be fitted in for balanced connection.
Designed to fit a standard 9-inch base.
This is constructed from two plates, each plate being made from a
sandwich construction of two 10 mm aluminium plates, separated by
an acrylic plate clamped together with prestressed, non-magnetic,
stainless steel screws. The turntable chassis ( top plate) is suspended
by large springs submerged in silicone oil, with a low resonance of 2.2
Hz, which dampens movements of the springs themselves. The main
base ( bottom plate ) is supported by three aluminium and stainless
steel spikes. The top plate is easily levelled by four knobs. When this
plate is lifted (for transport) the silicone suspension reservoirs are
automatically sealed.

HARMONY MC
Shelter’s new reference model! For the first time
in a Shelter pickup, the Harmony uses CFRP
(carbon fiber reinforced plastic) for the cartridge’s body-shell. This material has superior
characteristics of absorbing and decreasing vibrations. The resonance frequency of this CFRP
material is out of the audible frequency range,
thus having less coloration but allowing the reproduced signal many sonic advantages.

myth that MC type cartridges
are the only path to perfection.
With 40% lower effective moving

musical and without the sonic
“signature” that MC cartridges
produce.
Same price as the BOHEME but a

a Low Compliance cartridge that
was designed to work extremely well with both “unipivot” and
standard “bearing” tonearms.
The Z/II is the first SOUNDSMITH

that one has come to expect from

The Deluxe AcousTech gauge is set apart from the standard
version by a full metal casing, AAA battery support, and
a deluxe storage case. Includes mini screwdriver and
calibration weight.
The AcousTech gauge will accurately read your tracking
force within 0.002 grams, the finest reading available. Many
imitators only read accuracy of 0.01 grams.
Accurate and simple to use – that’s the essence of a great
stylus force gauge, and that’s what you get with this
AcousTech model. We all know, or certainly we all should
know, that dialing in your correct tracking force is absolutely
essential for optimal record playback. If you miss on the
heavy side, your sound becomes thick and sluggish. Miss on
the light side, and your cartridge is more likely to mistrack
and the sound will be light and anemic.
Do not calibrate new gauges.
All gauges come pre-calibrated from the factory!

So stop messing with those mechanical stylus balances that
aren’t even accurate. This is one case where digital makes
more sense when it comes to fine-tuning your analog.

ISOLATION DEVICES
SYMPOSIUM ACOUSTICS
Perfect For Turntables!
The Symposium SEGUE ISO platform is the first platform expressly designed to isolate low frequency vertical
wave vibration. It achieves its goals through a unique system of five cocentric staineless steel precision compression springs which are internally damped with aircell foam. Much more linear in action as compared to
lossy rubber, sorbothane and polymers or even magnetic suspension systems and air bladder systems, the
ISO will not induce bass “bloating,” transient blurring or loss of dynamics due to non-linearities of these more
commonly used systems, while still providing the classic Symposium “energy absorption” design. Used as recommended, the ISO will reduce or eliminate bass feedback and floor-borne shock and vibration.

The Series 2 Rollerblock body is made
from solid, rectangular blocks of extremely hard alloy aircraft aluminum,
and are finished with a black “hardcoat” anodizing. This relatively thin,
special layer, harder than the aircraft
aluminum itself (which is harder than
some types of steel), improves contact
efficiency and provides “constrained

9” x 9” Svelte Plus for Mac Mini
The direct offspring of the Svelte Shelf, the Svelte Plus improves component performance by draining away and dissipating unwanted mechanical energy from your equipment’s chassis in an acoustically neutral medium. It achieves this by providing excellent overall rigidity,
using “constrained layer” damping (its stainless steel top and bottom
layers are uniformly bonded to an interlayer between them and a foam
layer to eliminate resonances), and incorporating a rigid, double-thickness center foam “heat sink” that converts mechanical energy to heat
energy. Its stainless steel top and bottom plates also provide effective
EMI/RFI (Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference) shielding.

can’t go. Simply place it on top of existing rack shelves and surfaces for
improved sonics with CD & DVD players, turntables, amps and preamps;
it also works on TOP of components. Precision laser-cut, stainless steel
sandwich technology improves bass control, dynamics, timbral purity,
midrange and treble transients.

Many consider the GTX AC outlets to be Furutech’s single best product. The Rhodium-plated versions are a bit more wide-open and
vivid-sounding than the Gold-plated ones, which lend a slight but perceivable gentleness to the upper octaves in direct comparison. At the
end of the day, these receptacles have an overall system effect more
akin to changing to a better preamp or power amplifier than simply
installing a new receptacle. With a very robust physical construction
and pure copper conducting elements, the GTX series of AC receptacles will facilitate the very best performance from all of the components in any system.
