    "In the Amarra room, we listened to the great Cat Stevens singing “Wild World” through Focal floorstanders, Parasound amplification, Amarra’s Model 4 digital-to-analog converter ($4000), and Amarra Mini playback software ($295), which supports up to 192kHz sample rates.

    The system’s overall sound was clean, detailed, and transparent, while Cat Stevens’s voice was lovely, full of wonder and pain—just as it should be.

    July, 2011: Stereophile : Listening

    Read what Art Dudley from Stereophile Magazine had to say about Amarra in the July 2011 issue of Stereophile.

    “Unsurprisingly, Amarra sounded wonderful…Amarra cleaned up the sound, smoothed out and extended the trebles, and presented my music files in a manner that sounded naturally detailed and consistently involving…In fact, listening to Amarra play 176 and 192kHz music files through the updated Ayre QB-9…, it appeared that I had reached the same performance heights as with the high-resolution, Ethernet-powered Linn Majik DS-I digital player.”

    "Empirical Audio tested several different playback software packages with our Off-Ramp 4 USB converter and award-winning Overdrive DAC. Amarra delivered the best sound quality for us. We also found Amarra's EQ to be indispensable, in one case enabling a TAS Best Sound of Show at RMAF 2010. This is unlike any other EQ we have used. Not only versatile, but completely transparent. Even purists should experience the benefits of this EQ. We plan to expand our use by taking advantage of Sonic EQ in the future. -- Steve Nugent, Empirical Audio

    July 2010: A Clever Piece of Software

    In the July 2010 edition of Hi-Fi Choice, Ed Seeley “investigates a clever piece of software…Sonic Studio has a long background in the field of mastering music, especially with Red Book CD. Its move from the studio to the home is Amarra, a piece of software designed to take on the task of deliverng music from iTunes to the USB or FireWire output of the Mac and offering sample rates and (in the case of the full version) parametric EQ settings.”

    “What is clear is that Amarra is able to natively process files above 24-bit/96kHz, which iTunes cannot do and will, in fact work, up to 24-bit/192kHz…Reviews from around the world appear to be generally positive…, so it must be assumed Amarra is doing something (right) at this level as well.”

    “…Amarra treads the fine line between being a vital additional piece of the computer audiophile world and a 21st Century graphic equalizer.” -- Ed Seeley, Hi-Fi Choice Magazine

    "The Absolute Sound has never reviewed a piece of computer software. That’s about to change. Computer-based digital audio has now advanced to where it competes sonically with traditional media.

    This years RMAF was an exciting time and our pre-release versions of Amarra 2.1 and Amarra VINYL were well received by all.

    Steven Stone of The Absolute Sound : "Best of Show"
    RMAF 2010 "…for me the sound in the Iris room featuring Salk Soundscape 12 speakers, the Empirical Audio Overdrive Signature DAC, and Balanced Power Technologies Cabling was the one that moved me the most."
    Note: This system used Amarra as its source.
