Description:Clearance Sale Item! Price Reduced!

Following the SHM-CD by JVC/Universal and HQCD by Toshiba EMI, Sony has joined the competition for the next-generation, higher-quality CD formulation with its Blu-spec CD. Sony applies new technologies and materials developed for Blu-ray Discs to improve the sound of the Red Book CD.

More specifically, it uses the Blue Saser Diode Cutting technology, which utilizes optimized optical fibers and blue laser to improve the quality of laser beam used to cut the CD master. The new technology allows for a more precise cutting at the micro-level. The second factor is the new high-polymer polycarbonate material which enables a very precise transfer of bits from the stamper to the CD.

The cumulative effects of these innovations are reductions in reading errors and jitter, which translates to human ears as more open, vivid, and realistic sound that is closer to the quality of master tapes. And, as with SHM-CD and HQCD, Blu-spec CD is 100% compatible with normal CD players.

Now, Sony has released a second volume of this specially-priced and limited-edition 2CD jazz sampler so that audiophiles and music lovers can compare the same music material on two different formats: Blu-spec CD and regular CD. Taken from Sony/Columbia's vast jazz/fusion catalog, each disc contains 11 classic recordings by Miles Davis, Carmen McRae, Ella Fitzgerald, Dave Brubeck, Thelonious Monk, Weather Report and Gary Peacock, among others.

Don't just take Sony's word or my word. Get this set and experience the superior sound of Blu-spec CD for yourself!

Also available: Blu-spec CD Classical Sampler and Blu-spec CD Jazz Sampler Vol. 1.
