[ Temporary suspension of shipping destined to China ]

According to the information from JAPAN POST, considerable delivery delays are expected
for mail items to China excepting for Hong Kong and Macao.

As transportation performance has declined drastically since March 9 due to immigration restrictions on visitors from China to Japan
and restrictions on flights from/to that country, we are unable to make any prospect for dispatching items to China.

Therefore, shipping destined to China is to be temporarily suspended from March 13.

We will ship your item as soon as JAPAN POST's acceptance is resumed.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Audio Masterpiece Collections

Listening to excellent pieces of music of great performances and high quality sound-recordings is a blissful moment for all audio enthusiasts.

However, a lot of original analog master tapes, though they contain the greatest performances and high quality sound-recordings of all time in history and hold eternal values, are often buried in archives or storerooms of record companies all over the world without being shed light on their existence.

We have dug them out of archives, and with state-of-the-art techniques, transferred them to SACDs, the best conceivable playback mediums.

It is a great pleasure for us to introduce you the best-sound playback mediums as our "Audio Masterpiece Collections".

These SACDs have been produced in accordance with our convictions that in a certain sense the conclusive music file with ultimate high quality of sound is none other than the original master tape itself because, without any doubt, if it has been kept well-preserved, it must contain a great amount of unspoiled sound information, thus we shall share the joy of listening to such pure and genuine sound of music-- the privilege which is given to exclusively limited persons involved in the recording process. In order to realize such an ideal playback mediums, we successfully digitized the analog master tape, and transferred it to the suitable mediums with no additional processing treatment such as equalizing or sound adjustment-- noises and sound dropouts, which had been attributed to the master tape, were kept intact.

We became at last able to provide audio enthusiasts with the ultimate sound quality that is as close to the original master tape as possible.

The best-ever orchestra recording

All members of the orchestra performed in beauteous harmony. Strings occupy the front space on the stage and the brass creates wind pressure from the back. Even the woodwind sound stirs the air on the stage and reverberates sweetly throughout the entire hall. This performance has maintained the position of being the most legendary recording by the engineer Kenneth Wilkinson for half century. We cannot imagine exceeding the avant-garde level of this recording, the enormous acoustic realism from this specific hall, and the broad orchestral sound of this product.(Extract from the “Classic Excellent Recording Ultimate Guide” written by Mori Shima and published by Stereo Sound)









 オーケストラの描写は全景からその一員にいたるまで一点の揺るぎもない。弦楽器はステージの前面を豊穣に埋め尽くし、金管は彼方から重厚に風圧を煽る。木管楽器でさえステージの空気を揺るがしてスウィートに響き渡る。エンジニア、ケネス・ウィルキンソンの最高の録音として、伝説的な地位を半世紀に渡って保持してきた。ホールのアコースティックとオーケストラの全容を巨大なままに記録した前衛性は、いまだ凌駕される兆しすらない。(弊社発行 嶋護著「クラシック名録音・究極ガイド」より抜粋)
