This series marks the first hybrid SACD release of historical recording selections. These new audio versions feature Esoterics proprietary re-mastering process to achieve the highest level of sound quality.

All will be equally impressed by the soul hidden within the notes, but never before found in previously released recordings in any format.
Esoteric equipment used for re-mastering:
The criterion of re-mastering is to faithfully capture the quality of the original master tapes. Esoteric's flag ship D/A converters, model D-01VU, Rubidium master clock generator model G-0Rb and Esoteric Mexcel interconnect cables and power cords, were all used for this re-mastering session. This combination of highly advanced technology greatly contributed to capturing the high quality sound of the original master tapes.
