Anton Dvořák’s ‘From the New World’ symphony is part of the world’s cultural heritage, and the second movement was one of two recordings that astronaut Neil Armstrong chose to bring to the moon in the 1969 Apollo 11 mission. It was first created on December 15th, 1893, in New York’s legendary Carnegie Hall.
The composer himself described this symphony as Czeck music that could not have existed if he had not known America.
The 2xHD Fusion Mastering System: In the constant evolution of its proprietary mastering process, 2xHD has progressed to a new phase called 2xHD FUSION, integrating the finest analog, with state-of-the-art digital technology.
The mastering chain consists of a selection of high-end vacuum tube equipment. For the recordings on this album, the original DXD master was played on a Nagra HD DAC X high-end tube playback converter, wired with OCC silver cables to the 2xHD analog mastering electronic tube system permitting 2xHD FUSION to obtain a better resolution and 3D imaging.
The resulting signal is then transferred back into high resolution formats by recording it in DXD using a custom 2xHD Technologies A to D converter. All analog and digital cables that are used are-state-of-the-art Siltech. The 2xHD FUSION mastering system is powered by a super capacitor power supply, using a new technology that lowers the digital noise found in the lowest level of the spectrum.
