Doug Fearn of D.W. Fearn Pro Audio Offers a Video of Recording to DSD

Doug Fearn is no stranger to the recording studio. One of his first recordings was in 1968, captured on a 4 track Scully tape machine. His fondness for higher quality led him to launch his company, D.W. Fearn, in the early 1990's specializing in vacuum tube products for professional audio engineers. In association with Tommy McIntyre (guitarist) and support musicians (Hazelrigg Brothers), Doug demonstrates his technique for recording direct to DSD on the Tascam DA-3000.

We invite you to view the youtube video (link below) and check out other recordings made in DSD on the Tascam DA-3000 by the Hazelrigg Brothers available at Blue Coast Music's high resolution download store.

From the Youtube Video:
