Your Choices
We record your records in either high resolution WAV (up to 24/192), DSD (DSD64 or DSD128) or standard resolution (CD quality).
The recording format depends on your choice of playback device(s).
Once recorded the two files (one per side) are transferred to high powered audio processing computers for manipulation in the digital domain. 
Depending or your needs and wants we can convert the high resolution files to other formats (e.g. FLAC), add album art and tag the tracks and copy to the media of your choice.
If you prefer you can process the raw files yourself from the high quality recording.
Our simplest, most cost effective service is to provide a single file per LP side.
