℗ © 2017 2xHD
A collection of over 106 minutes of classic jazz containing exclusive performances of Jazz Greats Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Sarah Vaughan, Shirley Horn,João Gilberto, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchesra and Larry Young
For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips NAB master tapes were 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 to DSD256 (11.2mHz) using Merging Horus/Hapi A\D converter and a dCS Vivaldi clock.
Each format (96kHz, 192kHz, DSD2.8mHz, DSD5.6mHz)) was created from that transfer.
2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme.
