Hello From my first listening to this album, I immediately liked the dynamics, the transparency and of course the misical choice. This album is one of the top 10 in my collection. I’m sure VOL .2 will be impressive


One of the best recordings in 2019

If you've never heard one of Rene's master recordings, you're doing yourself a disservice. This recording is simply mind blowing! Just buy it and be done. Will be the best purchase you will make this year!

Hello, I am Rene Laflamme from 2xHD. Sorry that you got a defective copy. Please write to me at renefidelio@gmail.com and I will replace it.

The album is Editor's Choice of the Month on HighFidelity magazine in Hong Kong.

Review: Zhong Yi was scared! Transient, dynamic, impact and fast and accurate low frequency response, all surprised me! This dynamic 2XHD selection of recordings, music details, each instrument, vocals are realistic, a must.

Fever Sound, Author: Chen Shuguang: .. the result is really shocking Hi Fi and the sense of presence. When I play this disc on the home EMT 927 disc, the effect is as true as the entire recording venue.. Your equipment system will face Great test. Each piece of the disc is humming for audition purposes. If you have never seen Fidelio's outstanding sound.. and the dynamic is amazing!


Audiophile, not! Great music though...

Well, if this is an AP manufactured record then something must have gone wrong. Very high levels of surface noise, pops and other disturbing artifacts throughout every track. The levels of noise is so high that any enjoyment of the excellent recordings are gone. Some tape hiss etc is to be expected but not record generated noise like this. Excellent music, but audiophile, forget it! I cleaned it 5 times on an Audio desk system cleaner, no difference.
