RR compact discs are made from digital masters on all recordings made
since 1985. (Earlier titles were transferred from analogue masters,
and these are clearly marked ADD.) Currently, our recording equipment includes "Prof." Johnson's
highly customized microphones and hand-built electronics, and Pacific Microsonics
digital converters operating at high sampling rates. We record two-channel
masters and discrete five-channel masters at
at 176.4 kHz, 24-bits.
Titles marked "HDCD" have been recorded with an advanced new digital
system co-invented by our own "Prof." Johnson. HDCD brings

levels of resolution, imaging and spatial information will be revealed when
these CDs are reproduced on players with HDCD decoding, now available from
Pure Analogue LPs
