Test CD 5 is also an interesting collection of quality music from the highly varied Opus 3 catalogue. Like many other Opus 3 titles, it is of course mastered using the HDCD process (used by Opus 3 since 1996) which gives a sound quality that equals a resolution of 20 bits when using a CD player with a HDCD decoder - there are now a big number of such players on the market and lately, also in some DVD players.
In the 16 page CD booklet, there are explanations what to listen for on each and every one of the 14 tracks. Furthermore, there is also detailed information regarding our recording philosophy, recording technique, technical equipment and so on.
