Master Quality Reel To Reel Deluxe 2 Tape Set!
Pure Analogue Copy (AAA) at 15 ips, CCIR EQ, from the Analogue Master Tape!

This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

2xHD is proud to offer this deluxe double reel tape version of this amazing album which is widely regarded as one of the greatest audiophile masterpieces ever recorded. Appreciated for its superb sound quality in the recording of choral and solo voices recorded by legendary sound engineer Bertil Alving in 1976, the recording set a new benchmark in sound engineering. Opening with Enrico Bossi's "Cantate Domino" for choir, organ, trumpets and trombones, the choral album.

Based in Montreal and created by audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme and producer André Perry, all 2xHD Tapes are from the original analog master and transfer in analog domain using a Nagra-T tape recorder, modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired from the playback head. In the high end audio world, René has carved out a reputation for definition of excellence and uses his knowledge and unfailing instinct to match various audio components to create the best all-encompassing sound experience.

For the recording on this tape, the original 1/4" 15 ips CCIR master tapes were played on a Nagra-T tape recorder Vacuum Tube Tape head and recorded on a Nagra IV-S 1/4" at 15 ips. A custom-built carbon fiber headblock and a head damping electronic system permit 2xHD fusion to obtain more transparency and better 3D imaging.

** It is standard practice in all recording studios to keep the tape "tail out". This reduces "pre-echo" and it means that the tape should be placed on the right hand side of the recorder, re-wound and then played.
