is a proprietary process of JVC that optimizes CD mastering and manufacturing. With the introduction of the original XRCD, JVC surprised the audiophile world and demonstrated that A LOT can be done to improve the sound quality of the redbook CD format. Since then, JVC has improved the technology even further, first upgrading to XRCD2, then more recently to XRCD24.

All the XRCDs in the world are produced in one facility in Yokohama, Japan, which means the highest level of quality assurance. You don't need a "golden ear" to hear the improvement in an XRCD. Obvious gains in clarity, transparency, dynamics and warmth of XRCD can be heard by all. And no additional equipment is necessary to realize the sonic benefits of the XRCD process. Simply put the XRCD in a regular CD player and enjoy the glorious sound!

Eastwind Import is proud to present a selection of excellent-sounding XRCDs in our catalog. Our selection is focused on jazz, but we will gladly take special orders. If you have a specific XRCD title in mind and can't find it in our website, contact us so we can order it for you.
