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.
This highly esteemed 1976 recording of Saint-Saens' "Organ" Symphony remains one of the finest available. Daniel Barenboim takes a joyous celebratory approach to this massive work, achieving an overall warmth and immediacy few conductors have matched before or since. Organist Gaston Litaize is clearly equally inspired, delivering a rousing extraordinarily memorable finale.
