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.
Richard Strauss' Ein Heldenleben (translated into English as "A Hero's Life" or "A Heroic Life") is one of the most exciting works in orchestral literature. Strauss' musical self-portrait depicts confidence, unrest, the battle of life, love and serenity. This 1977 release from Deutsche Grammophon features conductor Karl Bohm and the Vienna Philharmonic.
