Las Vegas, NV (March 13, 2007)–TransAudio Group, the U.S. distributor of Digital Audio Denmark (DAD) precision AD and DA converters, will offer complimentary SACDs of the world’s first DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition) recording to mastering engineers by simply calling Brad Lunde at TransAudio Group 702-365-5155 and requesting a copy. This is a dual-disc set with both the standard CD and SACD formats.
Digital Audio Denmark’s converters deliver the first DXD recording of Mozart’s violin concertos in Norway.With 24-bit, 352.8kHz recording and dramatically improved impulse response, DXD is-according to the TransAudio announcement-“the first digital format to overcome the sonic failings of every protocol heretofore employed.”
The system used for the disc represents the collaboration of DAD with
Merging Technologies to create the eight-channel Sphynx-2 converter for
Merging Technology’s Pyramix DAW. Two-time Grammy nominee Morten Lindberg and Hans Peter L’Orange used this high-end solution, along with a minimal array of DPA 130V microphones, to record violinist Marianne Thorsen and the Trondheim Soloists in Selbu Church, Norway. The musicians performed Mozart’s violin concertos and were recorded live.
At the moment, Digital Audio Denmark is reportedly the only company who’s AD and DA multichannel converters are capable of delivering DXD. Their DAD AX24 is a user configurable system that is field upgradeable from 24/48 to 24/192 to full-blown DXD, all within the same chassis. Not only has DAD built a completely modular system to address any sample rate, their performance has won in shootouts internationally.
“The recording quality is, I believe, quite the best there is in the world
today,” said a reviewer of the Mozart DXD recording on www.SA-CD.net. And, Brad Lunde, president of TransAudio Group, commented, “The DAD DXD Mozart disc is truly awe inspiring. It gives the listener an excellent idea of just how different sounding the DXD format is. This Mozart CD sounds extraordinary and it immediately highlights what Digital Audio Denmark’s technology can do. Only a limited number are available, so we are hoping the right people call fast.”
TransAudio Group is now offering Digital Audio Denmark converter systems for sale on their Las Vegas Pro Audio website and selected U.S. pro dealers as they get the product out to the U.S. market for the first time. Las Vegas Pro Audio is also the exclusive U.S. source for ATC studio monitors, Daking electronics, Enhanced Audio mic mounts and Pauly Superscreen pop-filters.
