Classical masterpiece collection
The reissue of classical music masterpieces by ESOTERIC has attracted a lot of attention, both for its uncompromising commitment to recreating the original master sound, and for using hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) technology to improve sound quality. This series marks the first hybrid SACD release of historical recording selections. These new audio versions feature ESOTERIC's proprietary re-mastering process to achieve the highest level of sound quality.

ESOTERIC equipment used for re-mastering
The criterion of re-mastering is to faithfully capture the quality of the original master tapes. ESOTERIC's flag ship D/A converters, model D-01VU, Rubidium master clock generator model G-0Rb and ESOTERIC MEXCEL interconnect cables and power cords, were all used for this re-mastering session. This combination of highly advanced technology greatly contributed to capturing the high quality sound of the original master tapes.

Experience for yourself…
Experience the legendary performance in this new Super Audio CD/CD format. Not only for new followers, but also for well experienced followers of these recorded materials. All will be equally impressed by the "soul" hidden within the notes, but never before found in previously released recordings in any format.

Has anyone compared this set with the SHM-SACDs (complete symphonies Vol. I & II)?

(I can hardly imagine that this edition sounds better because the remastering of the SHM-SACDs is newer and the tapes have also been cleaned / restored at the EBS. It is doubtful whether Esoteric, apart from the actual remastering, will make such an effort.)

To Contrapunctus:
Some time ago I did the comparison you have asked for — actually three-way between the BDA, the Esoteric SACD and the SHM-SACD. The latter is the winner, hands-down.

Thanks a lot for your effort, Joseph! (So, I was right with my guess.)
