Notes & Reviews:

Audiophile excellence for more than three decades: when it comes to perfect listening pleasure, then MDG is always the music world's first choice. At the turn of the millennium MDG introduced the third dimension into musical playback - on the first series-produced DVD-Audio worldwide in 2000. Again and again the Detmold sound experimenters have refined their revolutionary 2+2+2® principle. With the new 2222+ standard yet another milestone has been reached - and once again in conjunction with a premiere: DIABOLO is the first Blu-ray Disc in 3D exclusively for the ears.

DIABOLO presents music at its finest, as one has come to expect from MDG, with a unique cast featuring the crème de la crème of the classical world: Elisabeth Leonskaja, Christian Zacharias, Hariolf Schlichtig, the Beethoven Orchestra of Bonn, the Mozart Piano Quartet, Jin Ju, Frank Bungarten, the Norddeutscher Figuralchor, and many others promise musical fireworks. Seventy-eight minutes of performance joy from Bruckner to Beethoven, from Chopin to Shostakovich, and from Scheidemann to Schönberg recreate MDG's legendary recording venues in all their facets right in your own living room and with a breathtaking you-are-there feeling never experienced before.

DIABOLO demonstrates just how simple three dimensional listening can be in your own home. So that nothing can go wrong, detailed illustrations have been supplied. And, as we know, since the devil may lie lurking in the details, DIABOLO comes with an encore of a special kind: the extensive technical component contains a full range of test signals enabling you to optimize your multichannel playback unit in no time and with your own ears. You will be amazed to hear just what you are able to tease out of your audio unit!

Those who cannot (yet) play a Blu-Ray Disc at home need not go without DIABOLO because DIABOLO comes in a twin pack. The package also contains the familiar Super Audio CD, which can be played back on an SACD player with 2+2+2® multichannel tone on a high resolution stereo. Moreover, the SACD also plays on every CD player in CD quality.

DIABOLO is all that is typical of MDG: technical precision, tonal mastery, the highest musical standards, and with a guaranteed fun factor - a devil of a good recording!
