About this album

With almost 4 years of Super Audio recordings enhancing our catalogue, we at Channel are convinced that this revolutionary new technology represents the final chapter in the search for natural and realistic sound production. With a good multi speaker setup the listener can enjoy concert hall acoustics in the comfort of their own home. What’s the difference? Digital camera images are composed of tiny dots or “pixels” which combine to reproduce the actual image. The more pixels, the sharper the image. This same technology applies to Super Audio recording with the digital sound being produced 64 times greater than conventional recordings. The secret lies in the converters which directly process the incoming sounds which have the patented name called Direct Stream Digital (DSD). Older recordings can be re-mastered using the new techniques but the difference between a reissue and a 100% Super Audio recording will be obvious to even the novice listener. Channel’s Hybrid CD’s simply means that the new technology has been added or ‘glued’ to the normal CD layer which can be played on a conventional CD player as well as a Super Audio Player.`
There is no multi- channel users manual to assist a record producer with set-up and microphone placement. Trial and error coupled with experience and intuition have been key words in attempting to achieve 5th row center acoustics. Actually this means recreating the emotional impact the music produces. Even in SACD stereo, the depth of sound, clarity of details is so clear that the emotional and sonic advantage of SACD is easily revealed. The number of excellent reviews Channel has received for quality of recording leads us to believe that we are pursuing the right direction.
