World-renowned audio processing technology gives portable device listeners the highest quality experience at a highly affordable price

BURBANK, CA ~ March 25, 2014 - Legendary producer and artist, Alan Parsons, today pronounced that Aphex’s popular Audio Xciter™ app for the iOS and Android platforms of smartphones and tablets is the most practical and cost-effective way to achieve improved audio quality and enhance the listening experience on portable devices.

Audio Xciter, Aphex’s acclaimed music app, gives the user a remarkable listening experience by processing the music in a way that brings out all the nuances the artist intended to be heard.

“MP3 music on smartphones and portable players has become a virtually inescapable delivery format for millions of consumers”, says Parsons. “Although better audio formats are available, for now, the consumer on the move will always be reluctant to spend the extra download time and to allow the necessary storage space for higher resolution audio files. There is no doubt that Audio Xciter helps improve the detrimental effects of MP3 compression and creates a simply better listening experience,” says Parsons. This dramatic performance improvement comes directly from the Aphex Aural Exciter technology, which has been used on countless music releases and is the industry standard for audio enhancement.

“With all the talk today of delivering high quality audio to portable device users, and the suggestion that you need to buy a new device for better sound quality,” Parsons continues, “Aphex has come up with a much more realistic solution. I couldn’t tolerate portable music until I tried the Audio Xciter app…this is truly the best thing to happen to portable digital music in years.”

Aphex Chairman and CEO, David Wiener, stated, “Aphex’s 35 years in top studios and on major tours and the Grammys really counts for something. This app brings digital music to life and we put it out at a low price so everyone can enjoy it.” Audio Xciter can be tried for free, on both iOS and Android platforms.
