Herbie Hancock-"Sextant"(1972)
DTS CD (cue + wav) | Channels: 4.0 | 44100Hz | 2x 200 MB
Genre: Jazz/Avant-Garde | Label:Columbia CQ-32212 | Source: SQ LP | RS.com

Now , this is a welcome surprise. Before listening to this LP, I had no idea Mr. Hancock was creating this kind of music back then. This is Avant-Garde with some jazz thrown in-VERY left field when compared to his 80's stuff. This LP was a very bad pressing so it took many weeks of de-clicking restoration, done by hand of course (SQ LP rear channel info waveforms are helical and therefore , the algorithms of the declicking programs are not programmed for these kind of signals), so please enjoy.
Also, as in all of my conversions , Noise reduction was NOT used.

Track listing:
1. Rain Dance
2. Hidden Shadows
3. Hornets

No EQ nor noise reduction applied.
Source SQ LP US Pressing
Recorded at 24 bit/ 44.1 K in Logic Pro
cleaned (by hand with a lot of love, click by click, an artisan job) with Adobe Audition 2.0
Decoded with the SQ script from QQ in AA 2.0
DTS CD encoded in Surcode dts pro
(Note: this was one of the first conversions I made so a Hi Res version is coming soon - k'n k)

WARNING; this will NOT play in a normal cd player-if you do, you can damage the speakers with the static that it will play-you have been warned!!!
YOU NEED A DTS DECODER WITH AT LEAST 4 LOUDSPEAKERS (LF, RF, LR , RR) to appreciate this CD.

Tip: Most modern receivers have basic dts decoding, especially and crucially, if you have a surround setup.

These 1970's Quad mixes were made for only four "Full Range" speakers, which differ from most today's systems consisting of 5 small/medium satellites and a subwoofer. If your system is like this , do not worry , since the bass management will make the low frequency information go to the subwoofer, (provided that you have it set up correctly!!!).

Tech talk:
Even if it's lossy, these DTS 44/16 conversions sound GREAT and are a treat to listen to.
Maybe one day I'll make a Hi- Res 4.0 DVD-A out of it....

You can burn this to a CD like a normal audio CD or play them back in your PC and Mac in VLC . (in Mac , also playable in itunes and DivX player)

Enjoy
