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.
Asia's debut spent nine weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. album chart. "Heat Of The Moment" (No. 4), "Sole Survivor" (No. 10) and "Only Time Will Tell" (No. 17) were huge Top 40 hits. Asia would go on to receive a Grammy nomination as Best New Artist Of The Year and Billboard named Asia Album Of The Year.
