The Malmö Symphony Orchestra, led by Marc Soustrot, presents this first volume of a three album series devoted to the five symphonies and other orchestral works by Saint-Saëns. Complete recordings of Saint-Saëns’s symphonies are rare and this cycle is the first series released since the 1970s. In addition to the two symphonies here, the programme is embellished with the symphonic poem Phaéton which brings to life the Greek mythological drama with stampeding horses and thunderbolts.
352.8 kHz / 24-bit*, 192 kHz / 24-bit*, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 2.8224 MHz DSD  –  2xHD - Naxos Studio Masters

Recorded in 96 kHz / 24-bit
*Mastered in PCM 352.8 kHz / 24-bit, 192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit and DSD 2.8224 MHz.

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, or 88.2 kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier and (if needed) will be EQ’d 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 192kHz/24Bit 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!
