InAkustik presented four reference collections from master tapes

The German company InAkustik, known for its cable products and various audio accessories, has presented four Reference Sound Editions on magnetic tape. Four compilations of the InAkustik label are offered on reels in two-track versions with speeds of 38 cm / s and 19 cm / s.

These Mastertape Selection compilations have been handpicked with great love for musical detail. RESO mastering, as a new high definition mastering process, provides significant acoustic improvements in the areas of transparency, dynamics, bass reproduction and depth gradation: music takes on significantly more atmosphere and emotion.

The tapes are recorded on carefully maintained and tuned studio tape recorders Studer A 80 (38 cm / s) and Telefunken M 15/21 (19 cm / s) directly from the original master onto professional tape such as Recording The Masters SM 468.
