Hybrid SACD + music Blu-ray
5.1 SURROUND + STEREO produced in DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition)
The hybrid SACD also plays on all standard players and computers.




Blu-ray is the first domestic format in history that unites theatre movies and music sound in equally high quality.   The musical advantage of Blu-ray is the high resolution for audio, and the convenience for the audience as one single player will handle music, films, their DVD-collection and their old library of traditional CDs.

What we are seeing is a completely new conception of the musical experience.   Recorded music is no longer a matter of a fixed two-dimensional setting, but rather a three-dimensional enveloping situation.   Stereo can be described as a flat canvas, while surround sound is a sculpture that you can literally move around and relate to spatially; with surround you can move about in the aural space and choose angles, vantage points and positions.

By developing one common format for surround technology that we have been working with for years finally becomes accessible to the general public.   Fairly soon almost all disc players will be Blu-ray devices, and already now a majority of the sound systems that come off the shelf are 5.1 surround systems.   People buy the equipment for the sake of film entertainment, but with it they get access to the unique musical experience that we are offering.   Stereo is still possible of course, but the fact is that the resistance towards surround is mostly based on ignorance.   People just don’t know what they are missing out on.
