A new Audio-Format: the Stockfisch DMM-CD/SACD

It has become common knowledge that, contrary to the trend of downloads and mp3 players, an increased preference for the vinyl record - now in it’s 60th year - is being experienced. Many music lovers prefer the special sound of the vinyl record. However, many do not like to hear the "classic" artifacts arising from the vinyl pressing: distortion, rumble, vertical and lateral aberrations, groove noise, crackling, clicks, etc.

We at Pauler Acoustics have developed a new record format (DMM-CD), which contains only the desired sound and typical tonal qualities of a vinyl record. Our method is based on the fact that the "vinyl sound" in the first place is created as a result of transferring an analogue or digital master on to a copper-coated stainless steel disk (Direct Metal Mastering).

The crucial step to DMM-CD:

Our Neumann VMS-82 cutting lathe functions as the original record player, because after the cutting process, we leave the copper master on the lathe held firmly by vacuum suction. This way the disc has no vertical or lateral movement, which would affect the tracking of the pick-up stylus.

Using the best possible components, we play back the signal from the freshly cut groove. The output of the JPA66 cutting curve equalizer transfers the analog signal to the "Meitner EMM Labs adc 8 MK IV" converter. The DSD signal is then recorded at a sampling rate of 2.8224 MHz on to our SADiE DSD8 mastering system.

With this new sophisticated process, a new digital recording media has emerged retaining the original sound of a Vinyl-LP but without the unwanted side effects. The DMM-CD/SACD gives you the direct sound of the DMM Copper cut - without having to go through the stages of pressing a record. more…
