Up On The Roof (DSD Single) (2018)

Goffin, King

Shanti

At an event in Japan and for an audience of about 60 people from the recording industry, singer Shanti and Amphion Loudspeakers CEO Anssi Hyvonen talked about what DSD is, what hi-res is in general, and they recorded songs. "Up On The Roof" was one of them. 

"Amphion was demonstrating what is like to hear a song that was recorded in DSD 256 being played through really high end speakers." Shanti tells us. Find out much more about the event in this 10-minute interview with DJ Kamasami Kong on "Japan Tonight". 

Speaking of Japan, when this DSD Single was first released there, it hit No. 1 on the best-seller charts!

I am so excited to bring to you this all time Carole King standard in the DSD format. It is raw, live and non-mastered. The spirit of the song is kept alive while simultaneously exploring sound quality which is the vision Amphion Loudspeakers and I have in common. It always has to be a balance! I hope that this is just the beginning of many songs to reach your heart! Bless!
- Shanti
