Notes and Editorial Reviews

o19 tracks o71 minutes o17 composers o19 channel classics artists In presenting our 6th SACD sampler, Channel Classics can look back at an exciting 8 years since the introduction of Super Audio CD technology. Many people think that SACD's have had limited success in the commercial market but I see more releases from more labels with each passing month. In the end the high quality of this format (together with the backward compatibility) is a deciding factor against all other forms of listening. We have selected 19 tracks which we feel are most representative of our past years releases. These are placed in a random order so that every release has its own distinct flavor.. Enjoy! C.
