2xHD

The 2xHD proprietary mastering provides a unique listening experience as the process digs deep in original recordings to bring out all hidden information, without altering the music in any way, uncovering and bringing out nuances, warmth, depth of field and even the air around the musicians.

The 2xHD logo on an album cover indicates that the recording was carefully selected for the quality of its recording and interpretation and that the high resolution mastering was done using the 2xHD system. Created by producer/studio owner André Perry and prize-winning audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme, in collaboration with several high-end audio equipment manufacturers, the 2xHD music remastering system combines the best of vintage analog quality with state-of-the-art DSD and DXD digital technology – a ‘Back to the Future’ approach. Each musical project is treated with individual attention to the choice of equipment.

Some of the top flight gear used in the process includes a selection of cutting-edge A/D and D/A converters to obtain the most natural DSD or PCM sound, such as a NAGRA-T tape recorder – modified with all tubes playback electronics (With its four direct drive motors and the tape sensor head, The NAGRA T is one of the best transports ever made), a modified vacuum tube NAGRA HD dac (DSD) to make it possible to obtain a real analog sound from a digital master and in some cases even battery power is used so as to benefit from the cleanest power source possible.

The 2XHD FUSION mastering system is powered by super capacitor power supplies with new technology that lowers the digital noise which is found in the lowest levels, something that was not possible before. The resulting signal is then transformed into high resolution formats by recording it in DSD11.2kHz using Merging Technologies’ Horus A to D converter, which is also powered by a super capacitor power supply. All analog and digital cables are the most state of the art available today. Also used in the process are Pyramix Masscore (records all high resolution formats, allowing for great flexibility), anAtomic Clock for re-clocking, and Siltech & Shunyata cables (all digital and analog cables are reduced to a minimum optimal length in the digital conversion and mastering system).

The particular open sound and feeling of having no ceiling to the music are obtained through the 2xHD high resolution transfer. In the case of an original analog master tapes, transfer to DSD 256. 2xHD is an accurate and musical mastering system, earning recognition from peers and from the specialized trade publications around the world.
