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.
Richter's Bach is unique in that, while "old-fashioned," it has a bounce and elan which escapes most of the "authentic period" performances which are in vogue in certain circles. With Richter, one appreciates the striking sound of the brass in Bach's Suites, particularly as juxtaposed against the tympani.
2-channel Single Layer SACD
Two-channel SACD layer only, to secure enough reflectance and not to compress DSD file.
Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection.
Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes.
