"... beautifully captured the rich sounds of Bram Beekman's fine performances. Recommended."
- ClassicalCDReview.com

"... a breathtakingly beautiful performance ... truly excellent playing of Mr. Beekman ... highly recommended!"
- Audiophile Audition

"The music was so full and rich that I could not believe my ears ... this is what music is supposed to sound like. The portrayal of the pipes was greatly moving and aurally pleasing in a way that left me wanting nothing more than a few more tracks on the end of the album."

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!
