192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 11.2896 MHz, 5.6448 MHz, 2.8224 MHz DSD – 2xHD Studio Masters

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue master source. It may contain noise, distortion or other artifacts, and may also contain audio which is limited in bandwidth or dynamic range, due to the technology available at the time of its production. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips NAB master tapes were played on a Nagra-T modified with high end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra-T has one of the best transports ever made, having four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head.

An analogue transfer to DSD 256 (11.2 MHz) was done using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter and a dCS Vivaldi clock. Each format (96 kHz, 192 kHz, DSD 2.8 MHz and DSD 5.6 MHz) was created from that transfer.

Each high-res sampling and A & B comparisons were made with the original LP, using the KRONOS turntable with a BLACK BEAUTY tone arm.

2xHD mastering: René Laflamme and André Perry
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!
