HISTORIC - FROM TRANSCRIPTION MASTER
The follow-up to the 2xHD Peggy Lee ‘Gentle Ballads’, this album delivers the swing songs recorded during the same 1948 World Program Service sessions. The historic recording was made on 78rpm acetate, and was brilliantly restored from the master by 2xHD’s FUSION mastering system. It sheds a rare light on this period of Peggy Lee’s magnificent career.
2xHD is a record label which uses its proprietary system to process music masters originally recorded in analog or DSD or other format, to DSD in order to produce a unique listening experience. In this particular case, a transcription from the original 78 rpm acetate.
The process uses a selection from a pool of high-end audiophile components and connectors. In some cases even using battery power, so as to benefit from the cleanest power source possible. This variable equipment combination custom tailored to each project, creates the most accurate reproduction of the original recording, unveiling informaton previously masked by the use of EQ, transformers, patch bays, extended cable length etc. The selection of components is critical, as many A/D and D/A converters are unable to pierce through these filters that create a ceiling effect to the sound. The 2xHD system preserves the dynamics of the original master and provides an open feeling to the sound.
2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme, two dedicated music lovers determined to experience only the warmth and depth of the music without hearing the equipment.
