"At work on the Phil Collins remasters in Abbey Road's mastering studio were (l-r): mastering engineer Miles Showell; artist/curator Phil Collins; and producer Nick Davis."
"Abbey Road Studios recently spent nine months remastering Phil Collins’ eight solo albums for a new reissue campaign across digital, CD and vinyl formats. Curated by Collins himself, the project faced a number of challenges, as the 30-years worth of album masters were recorded across a variety of media."
"Long-time Collins collaborator, Grammy-nominated Genesis producer and soundman Nick Davis oversaw the nine-month remastering project with Abbey Road Mastering engineer Miles Showell."
"The first thing Showell did was to record high-resolution versions of the albums on the SADiE 6 workstation in his studio at Abbey Road, so he could work on the albums without having to keep playing the potentially problematic master tapes. The two analogue-mastered albums were mastered to 24-bit, 96kHz files via Abbey Road's externally word-clocked Benchmark Audio converters,and the later digital album masters were upsampled to 96kHz."
"If you’re on the lookout for a new power amp, headphone amp, DAC or line converter, then you’ll definitely want to check out the Benchmark Media stand at this year’s CanJam."
"The HPA4 Headphone / Line Amplifier is an absolute must see… or listen!"
