This is the first DSD compilation disc of the 14 releases from Channel Classics. How does one describe the difference in sound quality between normal CD and DSD? It is not just a difference between sampling the sound from 44 thousand times a second to 2.8 million. To me, listening in DSD immediately gives that feeling of openness. Depth of sound. The total clarity of the instruments. And of course the large dynamic range. The music is not a block of sound from the speakers but it seems to be there without being able to touch it.
For those of you that have multichannel, the sensation of sitting in the concert hall can now be experienced. There are no rules for creating multichannel recordings but my goal has been to reproduce the acoustic characteristics of the performance space. To create the feeling of sitting in the fourth row. One is not conscious of the surround speakers (only by switchingthem off would you immediately hear the effect). DSD multichannel creates more emotion in the music – no matter where you sit because it is not necessary to sit in the ‘hot spot’ (middle of the triangle from your speakers) to experience this ‘emotion’.
I have been fortunate to have worked closely in Eindhoven Holland with Philips Research and Development from the early stages to help develop and promote this new technology. Now, two years later, their dedication and belief in DSD has been vital in seeing the results. Many important labels from around the world are all beginning to produce their own DSD recordings. In another year DSD will become standard for most quality labels in all genres! (Jared Sacks, 2003)
