"Every 'great' recording requires 'great' music, and that's what this disc is all about. The result can truly be considered a work of greatness. From the moment the disc begins, one is instantly grabbed by the intimate soundstage; Elias sings the majority of lines no louder than a whisper, almost as if all the songs are lullabies, but it sounds as if he's doing so while sitting on your lap, such is the feeling of a real, confined acoustic space and a close proximity to the performers. The experience is startling, even to a hardened listener such as myself." - Stuart Robinson - High Fidelity Review

"If you want to know what SACD is all about...then get a SACD player and this SACD. Every time I queue it up in my 5 disc changer/player, even if I start doing something else in the interim, I stop and sit and smile for at least a song or two when this one comes up. David's voice and acoustic guitar, the supporting musicians, the clarity of the recording, the overall production of the album are second to none. Many, if not most, other SACD recordings are mixed into the SACD format either after being recorded before DSD/SACD format was invented or after being recorded on the more typical/standard studio equipment; a true DSD recording, such as this one, is still a rarity. If you're an acoustic music fan this one is a must have." - S. Whittenton

Crossing (Stereo and Multichannel DSD64 Downloads)

REcognized by the audiophile commumity as an exceptional recording - pure dsd. Following in the tracks of "the Window", this second hybrid multichannel (5.1 surround sound) recording tends to break the mold when it comes to how low a sub-woofer might go, or how separated and distinct and clear acoustic instruments inclulding mandolin, dobro, weissenborn, upright bass, drums, vocal and harmonica can sound in a live studio session recorded with the musicians arranged in a full circle facing each other without isolation and with minimal microphones. It can get real with pure dsd in the right session. "crossing" is that session. come join the band and listen in.

"Doesn't get any better than this. Euphoric! David has hit on all cylinders with this one. May as well be as inviting him and his wonderful band into your living room. Every aspect from composition,personel and end results in the mastering process are as good as these 55 year old ears have heard. I can't wait til the next one." - Tom Huffstutler

"From the first note, it's apparent that this is an extraordinary recording...This is intelligent and melodic pop folk-rock, and Elias's singing is honest and tuneful." - Kal Rubinson, Stereophile Magazine.

"When describing the sound of Elias’ previous Super Audio CD release The Window, I described it as “a reference quality recording”. Crossing is clearly in the same category and some might even say it sounds a bit better. Listening to Crossing on a quality Super Audio CD Surround Sound system is a true pleasure. As with his previous Super Audio CD, Crossing features a mix of soft singing that some have referred to as almost a lullaby style and other tunes that have a more upbeat tempo." - High Fidelity Review


Acoustic Trio: PURE DSD Sessions (Stereo DSD64 Download)

recorded direct to dsd with minimal microphones, live studio acoustic trio nails it as if you are there. if there ever was a pure dsd recording, "acoustic trio" by david elias is in the top shelf. This session consisted of 3 musicians playing a single morning in a remote studio in la honda, california with the windows open. A sonoma dsd workstation was operated by one of the 3 musicians (charlie natzke, guitar/vocal). The songs you hear here are presented in exactly the same order they were recorded that morning. at one point you can hear a red-winged blackbird out the window saying aloha to the people inside playing acoustic. mixed in a single night by david elias on the sonoma dsd workstation (wide dsd, no dxd conversions) and mastered by gus skinas this is 100% dsd with no effects, no compression, no bullshit. acoustically pure dsd.

Record direct to DSD64 on Sonoma, uninterrupted single studio session (4 hrs). No edits, no overdubs, no effects or compression of any kind. Pure acoustic. Pure DSD.

This recording was mixed by David Elias on the Sonoma DSD workstation using the proprietary Sony DSD Mixer card. Similar to "The Window" and "Crossing" these native DSD recordings have never left the DSD format or domain and been converted to anything else.  They only become analog when they get played by your system!

A best-seller on NativeDSD.com and other hi-res audiophile favorite go-to's.
