“... the music in this album is well-performed and engineered. It’s obvious that the musicians are well-trained and perform with enthusiasm ...”
– Dr Birch Browning, Brass Band World Magazine

“...To celebrate the centenary of the RAF, Chandos has pulled together music from several albums issued over the last decade. And what you get is two hours of extremely varied music in typically excellent Chandos sound... the music sounds good!”
– David Mellor, Classic FM.com

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!

Software for Mac OS X

  • iTunes : plays AIFF, it's free and you probably have it already!
  • Audirvana : plays both AIFF and FLAC formats, $50 but has a free trial period

Software for Windows

  • iTunes : plays AIFF, it's free and you probably have it already!
  • JRiver : plays both AIFF and FLAC formats, $50 but has a free trial period
