Recorded in 1975 for the audiophile label Proprius, this album was re-mastered by 2xHD for the high resolution music lover.
In an advertisement for Proprius some years ago, Proprius founder Jacob Boethius wrote: “A small record company can’t afford to put out bad discs. And you, the music lover, must be confident that what you buy is good”. He was aware that, in the final analysis, quality is what counts with regard to clients, record buyers, artists and sound engineers. This statement is mirrored totally in the 2xHD philosophy.
THE 2XHD MASTERING PROCESS
2xHD Mastering by: Rene Laflamme and Andre Perry
2xHD Executive Producer: Andre Perry
For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips CCIR master tape was played on a Nagra-T?modified?with?high-end?tube playback electronics, wired with OCC?silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made, having four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and?a?tape tension head.
We did an analog transfer for each high-res sampling and A & B comparisons were made with the original LP, using the KRONOS turntable with a BLACK BEAUTY tone arm.
Each format (96kHz, 192kHz, DSD2.8mHz and DSD5.6mHz) was created using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock
2xHD was created by producer/studio owner Andre Perry and audiophile sound engineer Rene Laflamme.
