Double Disc SHM XRCD2!

The Next Revolution in CD Technology!

On this release, legendary conductor Sir Neville Marriner leads his Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields through performances of Gioacchino Rossini's String Sonatas 1-6, plus Donizetti's String Quartet in D, Cherubini's Etude No 2 for French horn and strings, and Bellini's Concerto in E flat major for oboe and strings.

SHM-XRCD2 (Super High Material XRCD2) is the ultimate XRCD2 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 XRCD2.

Why XRCD? Besides being the world's foremost CD manufacturing technology, XRCD ensures no loss of information through mastering in a 24bit domain and direct conversion to 16bit master disc production. Listen and hear the difference!
