DVD-Audio Explained :
DVD-Audio is a format for delivering high-fidelity audio content on a Disc. It offers many channels FROM MONO to 5.1 surround sound in either Mono or Stereo at various sampling frequencies and sample rates. Compared to the CD format, the DVD format enables far higher audio quality. The format on this particular disc has nothing to do with reprocessing sound into stereo, pro logic nor has sound been remixed in any way. The sound on this disc is completely natural MONO and the sampling rate given is at its highest quality never before released which is not capable on the CD format.
Sampling rates on a CD today is now considered limited, where as on the DVD- Audio format it can be 16, 20 or 24 bit, with sampling rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 or 192 kHz. Different sampling sizes and frequencies can be used on a single disc. Audio is stored on the disc in LPCM format which is UNCOMPRESSED or LOSSLESSLY COMPRESSED unlike the CD format.
The DVD-Audio player may downmix surround sound to two-channel stereo or mono if the listener does not have a surround sound setup. The downmix capability is limited to two-channels not to other configurations, such as 4.1. With this, it is still different to a normal CD except in that you are still getting a much higher sampling rate.
DVD-Audio discs commonly contain Dolby Digital of the audio (with lossy compression, usually downsampled to lower sampling sizes and frequencies) in the DVD-Video section. The downsampled sizes are still of higher quality than the CD format. This is done to ensure compatibility with DVD-Video players that do not include DVD-Audio.
THAT'S ALL RIGHT 45RPM SINGLE
PROCESSED AND PRESSED FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1954 FROM THE ORIGINAL SUN MASTER 'MOTHER STAMPER'
The original Sun 209 45rpm issue of 'That's All Right' was Elvis Presley's first commercial record. It was recorded on the 5th July 1954 at the Memphis Recording Service and was released later that month.
In 1955 ‘That's All Right’ was re-released by RCA Records with an added echo effect on the vocal track. Subsequent re-issues of this song from 1955 to the present day have all contained that same echo effect, not faithful to the first Sun recording.
If you have never been fortunate to own the original pressing and hear the sound as it was intended, here it is.
Through acquisition of the Sun's master 'Mother' - the part responsible for pressing the first run of records, we can present 'That's All Right' back in its original format with the same same matrix number and three pushmarks. This will give all true Elvis fans an exclusive chance to experience the birth of R+R for themselves...
