Esoteric’s flag ship D/A converters, model Grandioso D1X, Master clock generator model Grandioso G1X and Esoteric Mexcel interconnect cables and power cords, were all used for this re-mastering session. This combination of highly advanced technology greatly contributed to capturing the high quality sound of the original master.
