The 2xHD Fusion Mastering System is an innovation in audio restoration for a virtual audio reality: In the constant evolution of its proprietary mastering process, 2xHD has progressed to a new phase called 2xHD FUSION, integrating the finest analog, with state-of-the-art digital technology (back to the future technology).
The mastering chain consists of a selection of high-end vacuum tube equipment; The original ¼" 15 ips NagraMaster curve, NAB or CCIR master tapes are played on a Nagra-T tape recorder which was modified with high-end tube playback electronics, and wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Nick Doshi tube head preamplifier - the Nagra T, which - with its four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head, has one of the best transports ever made. A custom-built carbon fiber head block and a head damping electronic system permit 2xHD FUSION to obtain a better resolution and 3D imaging. If the original master is in 96kHz/24 bit or 192kHz/24bit a High-end vacuum tube NAGRA HD DAC X is used to playback the digital master to be able to do the mastering in the analog domain.
