Hodie’s Limited Elite Collector Series, released on December 15th will be the first set of DVD-Audio titles to feature 192kHz 24-bit audio fidelity throughout the entire signal path, from recording to disc.
Each performance was captured by two separate recording systems, one optimised for 192kHz 24-bit stereo, the other for 96kHz 24-bit 6.0. Both are delivered via Meridian Lossless packing.
The DVD-Audio discs on offer are available in two versions. The first features 192kHz 24-bit two-channel MLP on a DVD-Audio disc and also ships with a 3/2.1 DTS music disc, priced at $90 or $106.50 each.
