192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – 2xHD Studio Masters

Track 12 – 44.1 kHz / 24-bit PCM, mastered in 192 kHz / 24-bit and 96 kHz / 24-bit.

Compilation: André Perry, René Laflamme
2xHD mastering: René Laflamme

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 spe- cifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audio- phile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original DXD, or 24bits/96kHz resolution, or analog master – whatever the case may be. 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 192kHz/24Bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.

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!
