- Gramophone

This release contains the world premiere recording of Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Much Ado About Nothing with the complete incidental music, written for chamber orchestra but performed here by the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra under John Storgårds. Completing the programme is Korngold's Sinfonietta with its richly orchestrated melodies, dreamy music and imposing finale.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 2.8224 MHz, 5.6448 MHz DSD  – 2xHD - Ondine Studio Masters

In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors.The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original DXD master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the MSB Platinum Studio ADC plus. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.
DSD and PCM versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
