    Chandos, one of the world's most respected classical labels, announced in an editorial on it website that it has chosen Super Audio over DVDA for its first high resolution releases, continuing a trend for high quality labels getting on board SACD.

    I'm pleased that Chandos is releasing some titles in a high-res format. Given that their entire library is PCM based, the benefits won't be tremendous for going to SACD.

    I own about a half dozen of their titles, and I've been uniformly pleased with the sonics, although the intonation of the clarinets does drive me batty on one particular track. I have no doubt that there's another take, that isn't nearly as good performance wise without the intonation issue.

    Regards,

    As a recording technology, I think it dates back to about late 1997 or 1998 -- so it has been around for longer than you would think.

    This is great news. I love brass band music and Chandos is one of the best labels for BB music.

    Lee,
    I will have to check out the Vaughan Williams you mention, I've been looking for a good disc. Do you know the disc number?

    Considering that British music makes up a large part of my listening, and Chandos makes up a large part of my CD collection, this is extremely good news, as I believe there were rumors a year or so back that Chandos was going to join DVD-A.

    I believe that for all intents and purposes DVD-A is dead, although I'm not sure I can honestly say that SACD is totally alive.

    And DSD'd PCM can sound pretty damned good!
