“Adagio is not intended to be a safely-chosen title for an album of works marked with a tempo indication of “Adagio”. More than just being curated, Adagio represents the idea of ‘composing’ an album, within the constraints imposed by having to select only tracks from the Channel Classics catalog and having set aside not more than a day for the entire exercise.” – Richard Murison
Richard Murison has enjoyed a lengthy career in the Laser industry, where, as well as doing some actual work, he has left behind a contribution of published papers and patents, as well as presentations at major international conferences. He has been a founder of two venture capital backed startups. More recently his focus has been on the world of music, and in particular digital audio, where he and his son Tim founded BitPerfect Sound Inc. Richard’s enduring interest in high-end audio playback is, of course, the product of a life-long love of music in most of its forms. In particular, his heart lies in classical music – not only in the pleasure of listening, but also in the philosophical and analytical facets it presents. His interests tend to gravitate towards the larger, grander, and more elaborate works, and he retains a fascination with the structural attributes that enable them to come together as a coherent whole. But he also plays AC/DC. Very loudly.
BitPerfect Sound Inc. is a Montreal-based consulting software company operating mostly in the field of digital audio. The company develops its own software products, as well as collaborating with established names in the high-end audio scene and beyond. For NativeDSD.com BitPerfect has developed a unique and quite novel method for converting DSD to PCM with no loss of fidelity that can be detected either by ear or by measurement. Most notably, these conversions have zero phase distortion, which, for the first time, enables customers whose equipment cannot play DSD to enjoy the full benefit of glorious DSD sound.
