René Laflamme – Transfer from Analog to DSD 64fs and DSD 128fs
|Original Recording Format|
For the 2xHD transfer of this recording from Analog Tape to DSD, the original 1/4”, 15 ips CCIR master tape was played on a Nagra-T modified with high-end tube playback electronics, with a pair of Dolby A, 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.
Each format (DSD 2.8 MHz and DSD 5.6 MHz) was created using Merging Horus Analog to DSD converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock.
