Benefits of remastering music


Get more from your music collection. Import music tracks from computer files, CD or DVD-Audio discs (non protected, non MLP). If they are in stereo, convert them to surround 5.1 for an immersive experience. And/or upsample them to high-definition up to 24bit/192kHz for enhanced clarity and details. Export to DVD, Blu-ray or files.


When your music is not already in high-definition or surround (e.g. it is of CD quality), you will benefit to remaster it (i.e. process and/or convert) :

To encode the audio signal in a way that is more easily reproducible by electronics equipment with less distorsion and closer to the original analog signal with a technique called upsampling.

To supplement the stereo reproduction with surround channels to restore the sound stage to something closer to reality with a technique called upmixing. The front stereo channels can be left unchanged.


The result is a superior listening experience having more definition, clarity and presence, that has been qualified as "more fluid, less harsh and an all round better sound".

A broad choice of export media for authoring


Author DVD-Audio discs, DVD-Video discs,

universal DVD-Audio/Video, Blu-ray discs or

export to computer files


If you want the most versatile audio format, the clear choice is DVD-Audio. This standard supports up to 24bit/192 kHz in stereo and 24 bit/96 kHz in surround 5.1. It offers many unique features for audiophiles. You will need a DVD player that is DVD-Audio capable (e.g. from Denon, Oppo, Marantz, Harman-kardon, Meridian, Pioneer, ...). DVD-Audio players tend to have higher quality audio paths than standard players.


If your interest is for stereo at 24bit/96kHz or 24bit/48kHz, then a standard DVD-Video disc is a sufficient media when played through a good quality player.


To author surround 5.1 tracks in full 24bit / 96kHz or if disc capacity is a major concern, consider choosing Blu-ray.


Export to audio files if your audio playback devices are PC or Mac or or Multimedia disc based player. Most multimedia players can play DVD-Video ISO files with menus, which is a convenient way to structure big playlists without burning discs (and add visual interaction).
