In Plade-Klassikeren we have always been known to go very much into the sound quality, and instead of buying test records with weird sounds or an indifferent content, we have here collected a selection of some of the best sounding CD discs with a proper musical content. Of course, there is a difference in how well the different records are recorded, so we graduate them recording technology to the following standards.
TG = Technical God. Which means that the record differs from the average by having a more open and natural sound.
TF. = Technical very god. Which means that the record rises level-wise over the majority by having an excellent dynamic, a real sound balance, an excellent perspective, ie. that both the room and its dimensions are felt.
TE = Technical Excellent. Our ultimate technical character, where everything is perfect. Such as. stereo and depth perspective, sound balance, soloists and possibly. singer's voices are reproduced openly and effortlessly. The dynamics of the plates are identical to directly cut records.
TE + Where all the technical extremes are assembled together.
The difference between a TE and a TE + record can only be heard at a real reference system.
TG / F & TF / E = Average of the above groups.
All the titles shown are in stock and are delivered from day to day.
