Hear the 180gm vinyl box set on a studio quality audio system before its release
Clarity, the hi-fi industry trade association, in conjunction with Queen and Universal Music is very pleased to announce the official first public playback of "Queen: The Studio Collection” box set at the UK’s National Audio Show on 19 and 20 September 2015 – a week before the box set is released.
This fantastic opportunity for fans and audiophiles to hear the albums before they go on sale takes place at 12 noon on the Saturday and Sunday, during the UK’s only independent hi-fi show, held at Whittlebury Hall, Northamptonshire.
Five years in the making "Queen: The Studio Collection” brings together the complete collection of 15 studio albums, re-mastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig and mastered for half speed vinyl cutting by Miles Showell at Abbey Road. Encased in a beautifully crafted box and complete with a lavishly illustrated 108-page book, featuring material from Queen’s archive and the personal archives of Brian May and Roger Taylor, these classic albums are presented in the highest possible audio quality for die-hard fans and audiophiles alike.
Clarity members AudioQuest, Henley Designs, PMC and The Multi-Room Company will put together a top quality hi-fi system comprising the Roksan Xerxes 20plus turntable fitted with the VSC2 power supply, Pug tonearm and Ortofon Anna cartridge; Parasound’s JC3+ phono stage; Bryston BP26 pre-amplifier; cabling from AudioQuest and the £45,000 PMC MB2S XBD-A loudspeakers, as used by Miles Showell at Abbey Road. The ultra-high resolution system will show off the audio quality of the box set with incredible detail and help create a feeling of actually being at the recording sessions, reproducing the energy and atmosphere that was felt when Freddie, Brian, Roger and John originally put the tracks together.
