Soundstage Review of Auric Illuminator March ’00

soundstage
“If you only have $39.95 to spend but want a kick in the pants that offers images and sound as significant as a DVD-player upgrade, Audience’s Auric Illuminator should be one of the first things you think about. If you already have a top-flight DVD player and other goodies, the Auric Illuminator will make them even better. The bottom line: I’m applying the Auric Illuminator system to all my favorite and reference CDs and DVDs, and every new disc that comes in is going to get treated too. When you can spend this little and get this much, it’s like, “Duh?!”

“I consider the Illuminator to be an absolutely indispensable tweak that really does enhance the sound of most CDs far beyond its very modest price. The benefits on the Illuminator on LDs and DVDs is simply extraordinary, easily as good as upgrading to a better model player.”

“Using the 3 “C” criteria – I found out that dynamic contrast, temporal contrast and tonal contrast are all improved. Low level sounds that are not heard before (like small bells, subtle triangle strikes, etc) are now easily audible despite being in the background of much louder signals.”
