Noble, emotional, renowned music that moves the heart as well as the feet.

A Better CD Production Process - The Pure Reflection (PureFlection) Process:
FIM UHD CDs now sound undeniably better than ever! FIM's first priority is to locate a factory that at offers the latest technologies throughout its entire production chain, from the best A-grade polycarbonate materials, to testing and accurate quality control tools. The factory must produce a detailed specification sheet which ensures the discs produced demonstrate the same quality as the original recording.

To assure us of the best results, FIM has enlisted the help of one of the most experienced mastering engineers in the industry to craft the glass disc for the final replication process. Winston Ma continually maintains close rapport with him, as well as the original recording engineers, the mastering engineers and the manufacturer to achieve consensus regarding musicality and the sound spectrum.

FIM's glass mastering-disc engineer maintains expertise in the latest technologies: he currently uses a special blu-ray recordable mastering thermal process technique to create small smooth grooves which result in precision fidelity. He is meticulous in ensuring the best track pitch and the distance between the spiral of the pits, to reduce the amount of noise the tracking servo in the drive picks up from adjacent tracks, thus ensuring the best parameters on Cross Talk (XT) by minimizing the servo noise of the Drive during playback of the replica results.

To further ensure the best quality, FIM stipulates the most extensive test specification requirements. Pure Reflection (PureFlection) discs show in every CD booklet the full spectrum of specification of a given CD in the following categories:

BLER (17 items)
BERL (9 items)
Physical (6 items)
Jitter (6 items)
E22 Graph and
BLER Graph

The concept of UHD 32-Bit PureFlection is the transformation of a superior sound into something truly exceptional, enhancing the experience without interfering in it. Sit back, relax and listen to the new sound of a UHD 32-Bit PureFlection CD!

Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering!
Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering is a proprietary ultra-high-quality mastering system. This leading-edge system has achieved unprecedented sonority and musicality, reproducing as closely as possible the sound of the original master tape! This format employs what is currently the highest attainable resolution bit depth (word length) in the professional audio field, i.e. 32-bit. 32-bit resolution makes possible maximized, undistorted dynamics, and the lowest noise floor, allowing even the quietest musical information to be heard more clearly. This breakthrough results from the development, through years of experience and application of advanced digital technology, of a sophisticated A/D and D/A processing system.

Ultra HD 32-Bit Mastering does not specify a sampling rate; this allows flexibility in meticulously choosing the appropriate bandwidth for a particular recording. The higher the sampling rate -- for example, 192 kHz -- the greater the bandwidth. However, merely employing the greatest bandwidth may not guarantee the ultimate sound. With some recordings, a lower sampling rate -- 96 or 176 kHz -- may offer better musicality and more homogeneous harmonics. This determination requires careful and discerning auditioning and professional judgment. In the end, the human being’s hearing and emotions should be the final arbiter, rather than the print-out of testing equipment or technical measurements.

Recognizing these variables, FIM nevertheless tries to use 32-bit depth and 192 kHz bandwidth whenever the original analog master is at hand. Alternatively, if the original recording is on 24/96, the 32/96 may eventually be used to maintain the integrity of the sonority particular to that recording. With this flexibility, First Impression Music believes that preeminent sound is only achievable when the chemistry of the recording, mastering, glass-stamper making, replication, and quality control is right. As always, listening is believing.

This recording has been mastered by the new Ultra High Definition 32-Bit Mastering process, which creates an unbelievable sound surpassing other formats!

Erich Kunzel conducts the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra for selections from the films Jurassic Park, The Hunt For Red October, Terminator, Hook, The Abyss, and Robin Hood.

Over the years, Michael Bishop's sound effects, included on many of the Cincinnati Pops recordings, gave a special character to those CDs, enhancing the "themes" of the recordings and delighting listeners with their realism.

The lion and tiger roars used in various recordings, (including one of the many sound layers for T-Rex on the award-winning Great Fantasy Adventure Album) were made on location in the lions' den and tigers' cages of the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

"Recording the lion roars was a memorable experience," says Bishop. He recalls having had the intuition to start his recorders running prior to arriving at the zoo's "cathouse," in the morning before they opened to the public. The lions, says Bishop, were docile until he set foot inside their "house" at which point they went crazy, roaring and jumping all over the place. "I was able to record some ferocious roars that day," he says. Those roars were eventually mixed, along with recordings of whinnies from Bishop's twenty-four year-old Arabian horse, Ricky, to form the bone-chilling beasts heard.

Description du produit


Voici un éditeur qui a toujours été à la pointe du progrès, Winston MA son président et ingénieur en chef travail aujourd'hui de concert avec les laboratoires de remastering les plus avancés.

Dès le début FIM choisi la gravure sur Or 24K, plonge dans la brèche ouverte par Pacific Microsonics avec le HDCD. Cette technologie est particulièrement appréciable lorsqu’on possède un lecteur ou convertisseur équipé d’un filtre HDCD. Ces CD sont parfaitement exploitables par n’importe quel lecteur CD du marché et la qualité d’enregistrement combinée au support Gold 24K apporte un indiscutable " plus " à l’écoute.

First Impression Music se lance très vite dans la production, avec JVC, d’enregistrements XRCD dont le fabuleux double album complet de " Jazz at the Pawnshop ". Toujours à la pointe du progrès FIM adopte aussi le XRCD2 puis les formats XRCD24 et SACD et propose maintenant, après l'avoir mis au point avec les ingénieurs JVC, le K2HD. Le K2HD est un format de mastering 24-BIT à large bande passante 100KHz de très haute définition basé sur le système K2 JVC. Il s'agit autrement dit de la dernière génération du XRCD JVC.

A noter que les prises de son de la plupart des albums sont réalisées par le label et son président Winston MA au moyen du plus petit nombre de micros possible et restituées sans aucune compression dynamique (rarissime) !! Ce personnage pousse même le vice jusqu'à n'employer que les bandes master du premier "Cut" plutôt que les bandes mixées finales...

Cette collection, comme toute les autres, est en stock permanent chez Elite Diffusion.
