Celebrate audio craftsmanship with the finest album sampler ever assembled!

The Wonderful Sounds of Quality Record Pressings includes music handpicked by Acoustic Sounds CEO Chad Kassem and classical music tracks chosen by the team at Reference Recordings.

Every song meets the criteria of excellent performance, perfect recording and flawless mastering. What better way to celebrate such a monumental anniversary — the 10th anniversary for Quality Record Pressings, one of the absolute leading brands in analog high fidelity — than with this to-die-for sampler? Contains most genres of music — blues, jazz, classical, R&B and female vocals. From now on, you'll only need to carry one demo disc around with you.

What separates the world-renowned Quality Record Pressings LPs from other manufacturers? Since Acoustic Sounds CEO Chad Kassem launched QRP in 2011, the focus has been on producing consistently virtually silent vinyl playing surfaces, as well as reproducing details that were hallmarks of vintage labels — the "deep groove" label of Blue Note LPs, for example.

Vinyl expert Michael Fremer, of Tracking Angle, Analog Planet and Stereophile, gives you a track-by-track tour of the history and production of the songs on this special album. And because Analogue Productions knew that SACD collectors would be just as interested, they've made this disc available in Hybrid Stereo SACD as well.
