Everything comes to an end at some point or another, and so it is with blogs. I am closing both (Popular & Classical) blogs once some ‘housekeeping’ has been taken care of.
The reasons are many, and varied, but top of the list is that there has been a greatly reduced level of traffic through the blogs, especially recently, to a point that they are no longer paying their way and i’m back having to subsidise them once again, which as i’ve made clear in the past, i cannot afford to do.
It is quite ironic that whilst i’ve spent the recent downtime working on a new, very accurate, decoding process for Dolby Surround, the blogs have been dying on their feet. To make it even more so, during the time working on the new process it became apparent that i’d found a missing piece of the puzzle in relation to decoding SQ which has led to there being a modified version of ‘Phoenix’, which is now fully complete.
I am planning a two stage close down as there are a couple of releases i want to put out before finally calling it a day. The first will be a small number of (D) reissues, on both blogs, that were used as testers. These will only be available for ONE WEEK. After that they will not be available, no matter what!
The final stage will follow, where DS600 will be released, again for the limited time of ONE WEEK. After that, there will be the final bye-bye posting.
The first of the stages is planned for the 1st of May 2017.
Once completed i will then leave the Quadraphonic community for good.
