we capture the feeling two


WE CAPTURE THE FEELING - GRAVER L’ÉMOTION Ever since Fidelio was created, it has had one goal: add nothing to the music, subtract nothing to it. We strive to convey the experience of the live performance we recorded, to bring you as close to the music as possible. Pure and simple. This album is designed to properly test, adjust and set up audio systems. It contains a selection of some of the best and most impressive Fidelio high-resolution recordings. These tracks enable listeners to experience the unaltered live recording as if they were there, literally. Ne rien perdre et ne rien ajouter à la musique, c’est le but que s’est fixé Fidelio depuis sa création. Nous nous efforçons de restituer tout le naturel de l’interprétation pour vous rapprocher le plus près possible de la musique. Purement et simplement. Cet album est conçu pour installer, tester et ajuster votre système de son. Il est constituée d’une sélection spectaculaire des meilleurs enregistrements haute-résolution de Fidelio. Ils permettent de saisir l’expérience musicale en direct, sans aucune manipulation. Comme si on y était.

VOLUME ADJUSTMENT To appreciate this recording to its full potential we recommend raising your volume control. By opposition to commercially available CDs it was recorded at a low enough level to assure that no clipping occurs. The volume has not been normalized and/or compressed. AJUSTEMENT DU VOLUME Pour apprécier cet enregistrement à sa juste valeur, nous recommandons de hausser le volume. Contrairement à la plupart des disques commerciaux, ce disque a été enregistré sans aucune compression, à un niveau suffisamment bas pour préserver la gamme dynamique complète de l’interprétation en évitant toute saturation.

X2HD is a five step, no compromise process, designed to create the most natural and realistic sounding high definition CDs and high resolution files! The X2HD process relies mainly on the fact that a computer is not an audio instrument and therefore far from being musical. By getting rid of most computer processes and external hash, Fidelio gets you closer to the real recording session, restoring stereo spread, spatial positioning, preserving hall characteristics and the timbre of each instrument. 1. SSD drives free of moving parts are used throughout the recording and mastering instead hard disk drives to improve imaging stability. 2. Real Stereo image captured by a real stereo microphone technique. 3. PPE (Pure Power Energy) All low signal recording equipment is battery powered. All electrical current is cleaned by Shunyata filters and wired with Siltech G7 (silver & gold) and Shunyata Anaconda power cables. RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) and other sound deteriorating culprits are eliminated at the source. 4. Direct Recording Hi-End Encoding system with DSD DCS A to D converter modified by Fidelio, incorporating dual power suplies direcly feeding a Pyramix 7 (MassCore ) audio workstation without mixer, real time bit per bit encoding system, without downsampling. No artificial harmonics added. Music is preserved. 5. All Tube Analog Components. Microphones, preamplifiers use vacuum tubes. ©
