This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player!

The Amadeus Quartet performing Beethoven's String Quartets Nos. 11-16 (recorded 1960-1963) and Piano Quartets Nos. 1-3 (recorded 1969).

SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
