From John Atkinson, editor of Stereophile:
??I felt I had to note the sound in this room. I played a hi-rez file of my so-far unreleased recording of the Portland State Chamber Choir performing Eric Whitacre's Water Nights and every detail of the complex, tone cluster-rich scoring was clearly revealed yet without any unnatural spotlighting and with superbly natural tone colors. I have been attending CES since 1979 and music-rich experiences like this are what keeps the show real for me."
