Analog and Digital Master Tape Copies
WE’VE NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD. OR HAVE WE?
As music lovers, we’re spoilt for choice. Our favourite tunes are now available in a wider variety of formats than ever before. But whether you’re a vinyl collector, a digital convert or one of a growing number of audiophiles who are now rediscovering the joy of reel-to-reel tapes, one thing’s clearly agreed: nothing can ever sound - or feel - quite like the original master tape. And when it comes to masters, analogue will always trump digital, hands down.
Listen to an original analogue master tape and you’re hearing exactly what the sound engineer heard on that day, in the studio or on stage, with the band. No remixing, no interference, no compression. Just you and the artist, right there, in the moment – captured in its original essence.
A WARM WELCOME TO THE SOUND ENGINEER’S SEAT
So how do you get your hands on an original master tape? Well, it might be possible if you own a record label, you’re a billionaire or you have an uncle who was Oscar Peterson’s manager or best friends with Leonard Bernstein. For the rest of us, allow Horch House to help.
Horch House was created for the sole (soul?!) purpose of bringing the magic of analogue master tapes to audiophiles and music lovers worldwide. Long negotiations with music publishers have been involved, followed by painstaking research into the absolute optimum equipment and processes to capture that magic and deliver it via direct, faithful, fully licensed and approved copies.
As a result, we’re delighted to bring you the original master tape experience on reel-to-reel tapes, audiophile-grade vinyl records and in three high-resolution digital formats: 24 bit/96KHz and 24 bit/192KHz each in WAV format, and DSD in DFF format.
Find out more about the magic of master tape and how we go about capturing it.
Could this be the most surprising development in hi-fi since Neil Young’s Phono Player?
The team here at Horch House is excited to announce the initiation of PROJECT R2R: the development of the world’s only current consumer reel-to-reel tape deck.
