"Naxos, the world's leading classical music label, known both for recording exciting new repertoire with exceptional talent and for distributing a large number of classical labels internationally, including Opus Arte, Euroarts and 2L, has decided to join other audiophile labels such as 2L and AIX and enter into the Blu-ray Audio market.
The label plans to start releasing in the high resolution Blu-ray Audio format by October, with the premiere release being contemporary classical composer John Corigliano's Circus Maximus, recorded at a high resolution 88.2kHz/24-bit and appearing on Blu-ray in a discrete DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix along with a PCM 2.0 mix.
