Dave Grusin Discovered Again is a 1976 recording remastered to audiophile standards on compact disc by producer Winston Ma’s label, LIM (Lasting Impression Music). Joining Grusin on a Steinway piano and Fender Rhodes electric piano are Ron Carter, bass; Lee Ritenour, guitar; Harvey Mason, drums; and Larry Bunker, percussion. They make a tidy, well-knit ensemble.
In the JVC XRCD24 process, “the analog signal is taken directly from the custom mastering console and digitized via JVC’s K2 24-bit Analogue-to-Digital Converter. The 24-bit digital word then passes through JVC’s Digital K2, which regenerates a pure 24-bit digital signal that is recorded to a Sony PCD-9000 magneto-optical disk. The XRCD process takes advantage of the stability of the magneto-optical disk, as well as its 24-bit capacity by using it as the audio storage medium for delivery to manufacturing.” From there, the JVC manufacturing plant plays back the 24-bit signal through the Digital K2 to eliminate any jitter and distortion and then converts the 24-bit signal to 16 bits using K2 Super Coding, “which ensures true 16-bit dynamic range. The 16-bit signal is then EFM encoded, and sent to a high-precision DVD K2 Laser,” with “Extended Pit Cutting technology.” And so on, with the use of a K2 Rubidium Clock and a special Master Stamper. It’s a demanding process that obviously yields the best possible results.
