Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MFSL) is the undisputed leader in the art and science of record technology. Through the evolution of its Ultra High Quality Records (UHQR) to the ANADISQ 200 series, audiophiles and serious music collectors alike have long applauded Mobile Fidelity’s contributions to the research and development of making the best records humanly and technically possible. MFSL’s latest innovation on the vinyl frontier is the GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG system

The introduction of GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG maintains Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab’s position as the world’s leading audiophile vinyl record label, w passion for music is merged with extraordinary sound quality. The GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG disc mastering system is comprised of a modified Studer A-80 tape machine with proprietary reproducer electronics and customized, handcrafted cutting electronics and power amps that drive an Ortofon cutter head on a modified Neumann lathe. Independent and in house studies have confirmed that the GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG system can unveil sonic information all the way up to122 kHz. First and foremost, Mobile Fidelity Sound lab utilizes only first generation ORIGINAL MASTER RECORDINGS as source material for our releases, never the second or third-generation master tapes that are often used by mass producing music labels. The master tapes are played back at half speed enabling the GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG system to fully extract the tape’s sonic information, resulting in more cutting amplifier headroom, as well as allowing the cutter head twice as much time to inscribe the full bandwidth of the audio signal. Half speed mastering allows for incredible frequency response and hysteresis (a type of playback distortion) is greatly reduced from the tape transport’s playback head. Lacquers are then plated in a specialized process that protects transients in the musical signal. Optimum sound quality is further ensured by strictly limiting the number of pressings for each release. These Limited Editions, in addition to being collectors’ items, assure you that the quality of the first pressing matches the quality of the last.

To protect your GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG pressing after purchase, each is protectively custom packaged to maintain flatness and prevent warping. Each GAIN 2™ ULTRA ANALOG record contains a specially constructed heavy-duty album jacket that is supported by a rigid cardboard “stiffener”, and the entire package is loosely “bagged” instead of being subjected to a tight shrink-wrap that can contribute to record warpage. To help eliminate dust -and minimize surface noise- a unique static-free “rice paper” inner sleeve protects each disc. These “Ori...
