    Friends,
    Just got introduced to a new classical label for Super Audios out of Holland - Channel Classics. Tower, even in humble Atlanta, has several in stock.
    I have been listening to a great recording of Violincello playing Britten's Three Suites for Violincello Solo performed by Pieter Wispelwey. It is one of the best SACDs sonically I have heard. And the performance is mesmerizing. The tonality of the cello is amazing.
    Apparently this is a "pure DSD" recording recorded using DCS AD/DA DSD converters and the Emerging Technologies Pyramix DSD recording and editing system. Really superb.
    I am told all Channel SACDs are pure DSD so far.
    This is a label to keep an eye out for. [​IMG]
    P.S. Also good is the Turina SACD from Telarc - now playing.

    Lee,
    Thanks for the info. I love cello so I will have to check this out. I have seen this SACD some where, probably http://www.elusivedisc.com/ but I have never heard of Britten. When did he compose? Now or some other century? Pure DSD is good but what is Emerging Technologies Pyramix DSD recording and editing system? And how is it a good thing?
    I am not up on all of the SACD stuff yet.

    Lee,

    I seem to have one SACD from Channel Classics already.
    One with Wispelwey playing Cello as well. I will have to listen to it again tonight.

    Saint-Saens: Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor Op. 33, Tchaikovsky: Variations on a Rococo Theme Op. 33, Bruch: Kol Nidrei Op. 47
    Pieter Wispelwey/Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen/Daniel Sepec.

    Thank you for the info about their mixing equipment. I wonder what Sony is using since DSD is their baby?
