Aphex and MAINGEAR final release

APHEX Audio Technology Featured in New and Highly
Anticipated MAINGEAR Computers
Award-winning PC company leverages Aphex technology
to help create the ultimate high performance PC experience

Burbank, California–November 16, 2011– APHEX is proud to announce that its legendary pro audio technology is featured in two new desktop computers by MAINGEAR, an award-winning builder of innovative custom PCs.  Earlier this year, MAINGEAR licensed APHEX’s technology to power its exclusive EPIC Audio Engine, a feature that was combined with the new 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme Edition processor to deliver the ultimate high performance PC experience.  The updated computers, which debuted today, mark the first time APHEX’s heralded audio enhancement technology has been integrated inside a personal computer. 
By leveraging APHEX’s studio-grade processing technology in a custom designed high performance PC solution, MAINGEAR’s updated Shift and F131 offer unmatched headphone/speaker audio output and microphone input. This unique technology harmonically brings audio to life without adding gain to deliver sound that’s more balanced, more articulated, and simply put, better sounding.  The end result is a PC that offers a much more immersive experience, one that promises to delight gamers and creative professionals alike.

David Wiener, CEO & Chairman of APHEX, said, “With higher-impact, crystal clear music, sound effects and speech, these APHEX-powered computers will give users a far more exciting experience—and that’s what it’s all about. We’re excited that MAINGEAR, one of our newest licensees, is introducing an entirely new level of audio performance to the PC market.” 

“We are always hard at work thinking about innovative ways to incorporate new products from our partners,” said Wallace Santos, CEO and Founder of MAINGEAR. “The new 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7-3960X processor Extreme Edition and Intel® X79 Chipset, combined with our exclusive SHIFT EPIC Audio engine and other EPIC liquid cooling solutions offer the ultimate gaming experience.”
