The Chieftains – Another Country

26 Sep

The Chieftains - Another Country DS421f front

This release is the first using a newly developed process especially for decoding Dolby Surround. It accurately decodes to Dolby specifications plus, using just the extracted mono rear channel information, creates a new rear stereo pair based on the cue information contained within the original mix.

This produces a natural sounding quadraphonic sound field, whilst maintaining the integrity of the original mix.

The Flames – The Flame

The Flames - The Flame DS418f front

This album, in a good condition, is reasonably rare. There was a CD release  but it used a so-so copy of the LP as it’s source. This release is from a rarer limited release CD that used the master tape as its source.

A Message From SACD-to-DVDA

9 Sep

“Due to popular demand, I have decided to resurrect my old blog(s) dedicated to surround albums from various formats converted to DVD-Audio. Initially I will be concentrating on re-listing some previous conversions with a focus on the quad albums. Re-listings will appear every couple of weeks or so. Depending on the level of interest there may be new conversions listed in the future.

Due to my appalling upload speed I will be relying heavily on assistance from Quad Archive member Owen Smith, and this assistance is greatly appreciated. Assistance from anyone who accessed these conversions in the past and can help seed them would also be greatly appreciated.”   sacd-to-dvda
