I am pleased to announce that Bob Vosgien from Capitol Studios & Mastering has joined QQ! His latest project, the Rhino "Quadio" Chicago Transit Authority DTS disc, has created quite a buzz around here and that actually caught his attention.
Bob told me in a PM that "...it is completely true that Rhino is waiting to see what kind of sales they get on this disc before ANY others are completed... There are over 60 titles that could conceivably be released if all goes well."
He also said that "You can let the forum know that we spoke and I'm available for some questions from time to time. Some of the other titles we're discussing are "The Captain and Me", "Paranoid", "Close to the Edge" and "Aqualung." Warners is checking the vaults at the moment.(keep your fingers crossed)."
I initially asked him how close the CTA disc was to becoming a DVD-Audio disc. He replied, "The DVD-A label on the package was a typo. Warners is not supporting DVD-A anymore and they also wanted this disc to be more compatible with the general public. I pushed for the DTS 96-24 stream and I can assure you it sounds VERY close to my original 96k/24bit files. The next series (if it happens) will most likely be Blu-Ray... so there you go....
All the best,
Wow! Isn't that amazing news.
I would suggest that if you have questions or comments for Bob, you make them in this thread and Bob will respond from time to time. Let him know what you like and what you would like to see in future Quadio releases.
Sounds like fun, eh?
