"Slatkin fearlessly brings into focus the symphony’s originality ... these are impressive, highly desirable interpretations ... invaluable for the insights they bring so animatedly and poignantly into Rachmaninov’s world."
- Gramophone

"The first thing you’re likely to notice is the transparency of sound. Naxos does a fine job of providing vivid sonics with excellent balance of the various instrumental sections and solo instruments … it’s all great ... the sound really allows you to hear everything and the result is a total package as satisfying as anything on the market ... essential to anyone who loves this music."
- Classical.Net

This album was mastered using our 2xHD proprietary system. In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/96kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.
DSD and PCM versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.

2xHD Mastering: René Laflamme
2xHD Executive Producer: André Perry

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
