Mastering Engineer

For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips CCIR master tape was played on a Nagra-T modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made with four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head.

We did an analog transfer for each high-res sampling and A & B comparisons were made with the original LP, using the KRONOS turntable with a BLACK BEAUTY tone arm. 

DSD was done using dCS 905 and dCS Vivaldi clock DSD 128 was done using Ayre QA9pr

Press reviews

Stereophile Magazine

“Arne Domnérus and Gustaf Sjökvist’s Antiphone Blues is a superb recording of saxophone and pipe organ in the highly ambient Spunga Church, a 12th-century sanctuary in Tensta, Sweden. The odd pairing of instruments works in a program that encompasses everything from hymns, blues, spirituals, and jazz to Schumann and Vivaldi.”
