From Germany, an announcement from Dietrich:
After our initial announcement some months ago, our label "Quadro-Surround" is pleased to announce our first production as a DVD-Audio, which will also play on regular DVD and Blu Ray players. We have already done some productions via digital recording, but for our first offer we have taken a studio rough tape of 16 tracks. Reproduced with a studio machine and professional Dolby A, the mixdown was done in a strickly quadraphonic tradition, which means big channel separation and all-around sound, unlike some of the newer productions with SA-CD or DVD-Audio 5.1 mixes.
Our DVD-Audio runs (without the need to access an on-screen menu) automatically in the right mode after inserting the drawer. When played in a DVD-Audio compatible player, the DVD-Audio tracks are the default output. With a DVD or Blu Ray player, the Dolby Digital track is recognized automatically.
Musical tastes are different. But one must be taken for the first offer. For our first official release, we have chosen to go with Latin based music, which can present a well defined surround sound presentation with many percussion, noises and and sounds. The orchestra is Frank Valdor , who has for many years led one of the best orchestras in Germany and neighbouring countries. His "Hot Nights in Rio" (recorded in Brasil) is not just a copy of Perez Prado or Xavier Cugat, he has an own style, which will please listeners familiar and unfamiliar with his work.
The price of our DVD-Audio is € 22,-- which means around $ 24,-- including air mail shipment. If you would like to buy such a DVD-Audio, you can write us about our web site www.quadro-surround.de
, with PM or direct to me (www.RaschD@aol.com
). Payment should be made via PayPal. To make the payment process easier, we can send your PayPal account a request for payment once we have your information.
We will produce further releases in the future containing all sorts of music, but without Heavy Metal or free Jazz or others which is musically a real niche. I think, a special interest will have Rock Music. But you have the possibility to talk us your own interests. If possible, we would produce those types music. Our next 2 productions we will announce here in 2 or 3 weeks.
With our label we naw have the possibility to produce new quadraphonic music without waiting for the big companies or Rhinos "handmade", which has offered us only 2 old quadraphonic recordings, not new recordings. We are veteran quadraphonic fans from the 70's and are familliar with the type of sound the quadraphonic and surround fans like to listen to. That is a real discrete sound with a mix that is all around the listener. When the fans will take part by buying our DVD-Audios and we can earn back the money for a production, which is € 4,000,-- we can have a real own quadraphonic label - independent from the big firms, which have further on only a very low interests to give us new and really quadraphonic productions.
