JVC To Release High-quality K2HD Audio CDs

JVC To Release High-quality K2HD Audio CDs JVC plans to release ten new audio CDs next month in Japan, which have been manufactured using its proprietary K2 HD mastering technology for high-fidelity sound and feature the HQCD technology for increased durability.

K2 High Definition (K2HD) is a mastering technique developed by JVC Music. K2 HD encodes the music in 24 bit and 100 kHz resolution while in the mastering stage, even though the end product is a standard Redbook CD (16 bit, 44.1 kHz) and does not require special hardware for playback.

In addition, JVC's new K2HD discs will be manufactured using Memory Tech's HQCD technology, a high-precision, low-tolerance manufacturing process. HQCD uses a high-quality polycarbonate disc substrate materials used in LCD panels and a reflective film with excellent heat resistance and durability compared to the conventional aluminum alloy used in normal Audio CDs.

K2 High Definition (K2HD) is not a new technology. JVC introduced it first several years ago and in 2008 the company released three K2HD CD of classical music.

Japanese audiophiles will have the chance choose among 10 K2HD classical music titles next month (July 20) at an price ranging between 2,800 to 3,500 yen.
