Culled from the 2xHD and 2xHD-Naxos catalogues of jazz and classical masters, GEMS is a compilation of fine recordings which were re-mastered using the unique 2xHD process.  Included are favorites from Arne Domnerus’ Jazz at the Pawnshop, Holly Cole, and Emilie-Claire Barlow, Amanda Martinez, Aaron Copland, Berlioz, Rachmaninov and more!


Technical Notes:
This album was mastered using our 2xHD proprietary system.  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, or 24bits/96kHz resolution, or analog master – whatever the case may be.  The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock.  All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

DSD and 192kHz/24Bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.

2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme.
