    As usual, UHJ decodes are pure ear-candy.

    Excellent stuff. Played with a lightness of touch throughout which this music requires. Boyce is a transitional composer between Baroque and Classical and this comes over nicely, it’s clear from the music that Haydn and Mozart are next historically.

    The UHJ decode and ambisonics are working well, a nice soundfield that the speakers disappear into. The rears do a nice trick of sounding like they’re off until you check, the ambience melds so well into the overall soundfield.

    The release details say UHJ CD, but my player says 48KHz so I think LP is more likely.

    Forgot to say earlier, I’m really looking forward to this one. There’s not been much Baroque (or near in this case) on the blog and I really like it. Boyce has featured on BBC Radio 3’s Early Music Show which I listen to.

    The Album Info link is wrong, it takes you to a link based on the tracker. No sure what is going on there.

    So what’s different about Ambi-UHJ as a process? It’s been UHJ/II before.
