The analog tape is first played back on a calibrated
tape machine electrically and physically identical to the deck used
to make it in the first place. Impedance matched custom tube amplification,
mastering equalizers and dynamics processors are employed during
the mastering stage to ensure that all of the sound is transferred
to the digital domain.
Using crystal-clocked converters sampling at 96,000
times per second and producing full 24-bit words, all of the warmth
and space of the original recording is preserved as the audio is
prepared for DVD authoring and replication.
Every phase of the production is carefully conceived,
executed and inspected to the highest possible standards right down
to the handling and packaging of the limited-run final product.
