At Footprint Records, our philosophy is to make the best possible musical productions – from both a musical and technical perspective. These recordings are aimed at reproducing music in the home environment.
In our opinion, to accomplish this with an ensemble with their favorite placement in an acoustic environment, typically requires multichannel recordings. To date, we have produced around 110 albums, but only the most recent ones are available in DSD. More albums are coming in DSD.
