Five/Four Productions sees this recording as a quantum leap in high resolution recording technology that promises to deliver to the consumer the most realistic sound reproduction to date. 11.2 MHz Direct Stream Digital technology is a digital platform that utilizes a 1-bit ultra-high sampling frequency that results in a recording that is 256 times the resolution of CD.
Recording Producer Thomas Moore commented that "Five/Four always strives to capture sound in the most natural and realistic manner that reproduces pure and true. To be able to merge the sounds of period instruments and singers with this very modern technology is the perfect way for us to deliver the most realistic audio experience, just as if you were standing with the performers among you."
Five/Four Recording Engineer Robert Friedrich said "Recording to Direct Stream Digital has always been a must for us to deliver the most revealing and accurate sound. Taking DSD from 2.8 MHz to 11.2 MHz doesn't just step it up to the next level, it catapults it!"
