Jazz Masterpiece Collection

ESOTERIC proudly introduces a new series of re-master collection - A great Jazz collection.

The reissue of historical music masterpieces by ESOTERIC has attracted a lot of attention, both for its uncompromising commitment to recreating the original master sound, and for using hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) technology to improve sound quality.

These new audio versions feature ESOTERIC's proprietary re-mastering process to achieve the highest level of sound quality.

Experience the legendary performance in this new Super Audio CD/CD format. Not only for new followers, but also for well experienced followers of these recorded materials.

The criterion of re-mastering is to faithfully capture the quality of the original master. ESOTERIC’s flag ship D/A converters, model D-01VU, Rubidium master clock generator model Grandioso G1 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.

Join Miles and his musical cohorts as they take you on a musical journey through the decades and witness for yourself the evolution of a jazz legend. Japanese pressing.

"Miles sounds as if he's standing a few feet in front of the speakers. Switch to the SACD layer and the stage becomes even more spacious and open, giving the players room to stretch out physically and, in a very real sense, musically as well... [I]f you can play CDs, the Esoteric box will prove an eye-opener. And if your system is SACD compatible, this is the Miles Davis set to own." - Alan Taffel, The Absolute Sound, April 2017
