Arne Domnerus

    Stereophile Magazine

"Arne Domnérus and Gustaf Sjökvist's Antiphone Blues is a superb recording of saxophone and pipe organ in the highly ambient Spunga Church, a 12th-century sanctuary in Tensta, Sweden. The odd pairing of instruments works in a program that encompasses everything from hymns, blues, spirituals, and jazz to Schumann and Vivaldi."

Mastering Engineer:

For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips CCIR master tape was played on a Nagra-T modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made with four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head.

We did an analog transfer for each high-res sampling and A & B comparisons were made with the original LP, using the KRONOS turntable with a BLACK BEAUTY tone arm. 

DSD was done using dCS 905 and dCS Vivaldi clock 
DSD 128 was done using Ayre QA9pr 

Producer: André Perry
Recording Engineer: René Laflamme
Recording Type & Bit Rate: Analog to DSD128
