Mapleshade has devoted more than 20 years to making our CDs sound more and more real. We want them to capture that excitement, that intimacy, that 3D reach-out-and-touch-’em feeling you get sitting front row center with a great group onstage. Good sound like that always makes listening more involving, more emotion-packed.
At every step from our studio mikes to your home speakers, there are a maddening number of factors that degrade good sound (and good music). On the recording front, that has forced us to research everything from making pianos sound better to designing better mikes, better cabling, and better vibration-controlling mounts for our gear.
We’ve worked just as hard on the playback front, on making stereos sound better. Our decades of experiments in the studio have honed an array of products that, combined, can transform the sound of any stereo—whether it’s a bargain basement rack system or a $300,000 audiophile extravaganza.
Treating your CDs and audio cable connections are the cheapest ways we’ve found to seriously improve the sound of any stereo. Mapleshade has developed a trio of CD treatments that will dramatically improve the sound of any CD or DVD—or of any CD-R that you burn. You can hear the difference even listening on a meager $109 boombox. By the way, we use all three treatments to prep every CD-R master send to Mapleshade's pressing plant.
