This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player!
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.
Bohm's authority as a Mozart conductor is never in doubt: He recorded all of the symphonies for DG with the Berlin Philharmonic in the 1960s and there are six of them recorded in the late 1970s, late in his career with the Vienna Philharmonic.
Karl Bohm conducts the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra for this recording of Mozart's Requiem.
