Original Recording Format: Analogue Tape

The 2xHD logo on an album cover indicates that the recording was carefully selected for the quality of its recording and interpretation and that the high-resolution mastering was done using the proprietary 2xHD FUSION system. A recording remastered by 2xHD provides a unique listening experience as the process digs deep within original recordings to get all hidden information, without altering the music in any way. The process uncovers and brings forth nuances, warmth, depth of field and even the air around the musicians.
