 Latest Audiophile Collectables

'True Fidelity' vinyl is perhaps the ultimate format for the audiophile. Issues are taken from original master tapes for pure 'as intended sound', and production techniques such as half-speed mastering, quadraphonic sound and special formulated virgin vinyl are common in most audiophile releases.
There are many labels who issue audiophile recordings, but only a few specialize in it. Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MFSL) have a variety of series including 'Original Master Recordings'
[OMR] and 'Ultra High Quality Recordings' [UHQR]. Other important audiophile labels include Nautilus, Direct-Disk Labs, Sheffield Lab and Wilson Audio.

With the development of the compact disc so typically came the development of it's audiophile counterpart. Again there are specialist labels, there are varying techniques (gold discs, layered discs, high-density discs) and there are varying opinions on the listening pleasure! But we're here to bring all those quandaries together.

The truth is some recordings are better than others, in the same way some artists are better than others and some music is better than others! We will look unbiasedly at them all...
