SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes
the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further
enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed
for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency,
players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which
enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution
format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high
resolution format such as SACD.
In the Symphonie Fantastique, the borders between dream and reality, between art
and life itself, become blurred. Berlioz viewed his life through a romantically
magnified and "fantastic" lens. He was the first composer to bridge the chasm
between art and life, to translate life into art, and thus also to introduce the
category of the "characteristic" into the genre of the symphony. The Symphonie
Fantastique represents all the highs and lows of love, not excluding the vulgar
and the trivial. In its entire programmatic and musical design, the work is
oriented entirely to the effect it has on the listener.
