Pentatone Springtime offer on a number of RQR releases.

I believe Pentatone did a similar offer (25% off) last year, so for anyone who may have missed it:

BBC Proms in Binaural…sort of

The BBC continues to play around with surround sound without ever commiting themselves. This year they continue with their experiments with Binaural sound, but instead of transmitting broadcasts live, they are making selected concerts available to listen to after the broadcast.

The page to go to is here, where you’ll find a number of concerts available to listen too already.


Karajan Conducts Wagner vol.1

Over the time of the blog, this was requested a number of times, but for a variety of reasons it never happened. Hopefully this will make up for that.

The Stereo SQ encoded HD source used for this decode is available here

Vox CD’s at 20% off

Posted on

Naxos has taken over the Vox catologue, and as an opening offer it is possible to purchase the CD’s directly from them with 20% off and free postage (UK).

As you’ll be aware, VOX released many quadraphonic albums, and some of them have made it to CD, so if your after any of them it may be easier to grab them on a remastered CD rather than chasing the aged LP’s


Nimbus UHJ Releases

Nimbus has been the one constant when it comes to Ambisonic/UHJ releases since the insertion of the system, but although the company still releases albums using UHJ they haven’t been marked as such for some time.

Nimbus are planning to add information regarding which releases are and aren’t UHJ to their website, along with information on how they record them, but in the meantime they have allowed me to pass on this information that should help those who are unsure whether they have, or are about to purchase, is UHJ or not.

UHJ (Nimbus produced albums)

Series: 5000, 7000, 7700, 7800, 8700

Not UHJ (externally purchased/licensed albums)

Series: 2500, 2700, 6000
