Why TACET Real Surround Sound?

The TACET Real Surround Sound places you right in the middle of the music!

With stereo recordings by TACET, the listener sits like a secret guest in a large hall or church and listens to music. This wonderful experience is offered by TACET CDs and LPs (and the stereo versions on all SACDs and Blu-rays). But the listener remains outside the event. He/she simply listens.

Join us with TACET Real Surround Sound! You can actively participate in the play of ideas and feelings. You'll find yourself at the heart of the music, witnessing how the score reveals its hidden beauties. Listening to music in this way is like interpreting it, taking part in the compositional process. If you get involved, you'll be rewarded by an intensity of musical experience that goes far beyond stereo listening.


What is the difference between TACET Real Surround Sound (TRSS) and MOVING Real Surround Sound (MRSS)?

TRSS extends the musical horizon around the listener, placing him in the middle of the music. MRSS renders the TRSS dynamic in all conceivable parameters; for instance position, spatiality or sonority.

With TRSS, the music sounds all around the listener. Placed in the middle of the action, he experiences details of a performance or composition as though through a magnifying glass: more closely and directly than with any previous forms of recording. But this amazing constellation of sound opens up even more possibilities. Like a novel, a play or a dance performance, music is composed of a succession of differently structured scenes that are continually changing. For example, if in one picture you imagine yourself confined within four walls, the next moment you might find yourself far away in the outdoors. We experience a particularly drastic version of this day-to-day in films with hard cuts between short scenes. Or when a dialogue takes place between actors on stage, who in the next moment are located somewhere else entirely or are even roaming freely in the space. All this happens in music as well. An instrument dances, for example. Threatening sounds envelop us. A chorale resounds from a distance. - Yet these productions are not arbitrary. Just as a film sticks to the script, MRSS sticks to the score.

TACET's multi-channel productions have opened up a whole new world, and no one yet knows where it will end. The MRSS versions explore this new territory. It just takes a little time to get used to it and then you will be rewarded with completely new visions all your own!
