GOLD CD catalog # 10044-2-G

Sheffield's 20+ -> 16 Ultra Matrix Processing: This project features a breakthrough in CD sound quality. Sheffield's Ultra-Analog based 20-bit A/D converter is fed into an Apogee UV 22 encoder, allowing up to 15db of low level signal that is below the 16 bit noise floor to be encoded on CD. This dramatic increase in low level resolution represents a significant milestone in achieving the fine detail and ambiance retention characteristic of analog recording - the results are stunning!

The GOLD CD, JEWEL CASE and inserts are in MINT condition - the GOLD CD is actually FACTORY SEALED!

The CD is an audiophile quality pressing (any collector of fine MFSL, half speeds, direct to discs, Japanese/UK pressings etc., can attest to the difference a quality pressing can make to an audio system).

Don't let this rarity slip by!!!
