About The Label

The 2xHD logo on an album cover indicates that the high resolution mastering was done using the 2xHD proprietary system to generate a unique listening experience. Created by producer/studio owner André Perry and prize-winning audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme, in collaboration with several high-end audio equipment manufacturers, the 2xHD music remastering system combines the best of vintage analog quality with state-of-the-art DSD and DXD digital technology – a ‘Back to the Future’ approach. Each musical project is treated with personal attention to the choice of equipment. Some of the top flight gear used in the process includes a selection of cutting-edge A/D and D/A converters - to obtain the most natural DXD sound, NAGRA-T tape recorder - modified with all tubes playback electronics (With its four direct drive motors and the tape sensor head, The NAGRA T is one of the best transports ever made), AMPEX tube Analog Tape Recorders (selected for their sheer musicality, these vintage recorders have all been adjusted and highly modified by 2xHD), DCS Converters (analog to digital ‘AD’ converters, modified and optimized by 2xHD, Pyramix Masscore (records all high resolution formats, allowing for great flexibility), an Atomic Clock for re-clocking, and Siltech & Shunyata cables (all digital and analog cables are reduced to a minimum optimal length in the digital conversion and mastering system). The open sound and the feeling that there’s no ceiling to the music are obtained through the 2xHD high resolution transfer. In the case of an original analog master tapes, transfer to DSD and DXD. In the case of an original 96/24 or DXD/DSD master, transfer is made to analogue using cutting edge D/A converters. 2xHD is an accurate and musical mastering system, earning recognition from peers and from the specialized trade publications around the world.
