Clarity, the hi-fi industry trade association, in conjunction with Queen and Universal Music is very pleased to announce the presentation of “Queen: The Studio Collection” box set at the UK’s National Audio Show on 19th and 20th Sept 2015 – a full week before the box set goes on sale and Fan Club members can get exclusive pre-sale tickets to the show.
The top-flight hi-fi system assembled for the event, includes the same £45,000 studio monitor loudspeakers used by Miles Showell at Abbey Road during the vinyl mastering process, to present a fantastic opportunity for fans to hear the albums sounding the best they possibly can. Using these ultra-high resolution speakers provides the capability to show off the audio quality of the box set with incredible detail and will help create a feeling of actually being at the recording itself, reproducing the energy and atmosphere that was felt when Freddie, Brian, Roger and John put the tracks together.
Five years in the making “Queen: The Studio Collection” brings together the complete collection of 15 studio albums, re-mastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig and mastered for half speed vinyl cutting by Miles Showell at Abbey Road. Encased in a beautifully crafted box and complete with a lavishly illustrated 108-page book featuring material from Queen’s archive and the personal archives of Brian May and Roger Taylor, these classic albums are presented in the highest possible audio quality for die-hard fans and audiophiles alike.
The National Audio Show gives audiophiles and music lovers the chance to hear the world’s best hi-fi in one location. Learn about the latest technology, including how to stream music around the home, how to turn a computer into a high-end audio source and experience the very best that the vinyl resurgence has to offer.
The Show Must Go On at Whittlebury Hall, Northamptonshire (next to Silverstone race track) on 19th-20th September. “Queen: The Studio Collection” event will take place at 12noon on the Saturday and Sunday.
