Our guests are the spectacular husband and wife recording team of  Jim Anderson and Ulrike Schwarz, responsible for the latest Patricia Barber release Clique! on Impex Records SACD and various download and streaming sites. Clique! has been nominated for a GRAMMY this year for Best Immersive Audio Album. It has also been named NativeDSD’s Best Album of the Year with praise for the production team for their “Stereo and 5 Channel Surround Sound album that is easily one of the best of the year.” , and Clique! received honorable mention from the Society for Audiophile Recording of the Year Award (ARYA).

As partners in life and music, Jim and Ulrike have more than 60 years of combined audio experience earning 31 Grammy nominations, 2 Emmy nominations, 2 George Foster Peabody Awards, an Oscar win, and dozens of international honors between the two of them. Their brilliance is evident on many audiophile-approved records. Recently, PS Audio praised Jim and Ulrike as “unsung heroes of the audio world” in Copper’s latest issue, and that couldn’t be more accurate. Throughout their careers, Jim and Ulrike have continued to push the sound quality standards to the next level and developed their own technology to release brilliantly-recorded records in multiple formats, including their latest Grammy-nominated Clique!, which was recorded, mixed, and produced in Digital eXtreme Definition (352.8kHz/24bit).

Please join us to hear more about Jim and Ulrike’s perspectives on high-resolution and immersive audio recording and playback. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions to learn more from these insiders about the production of some of the great albums we, as audiophiles and music lovers, love and enjoy.
