What They Do

You live for this. The anticipation of pulling open the heavy-plastic outer sleeve. The sensation of removing the disc from its heavy-board, tip-on jacket. The heft of the 180-gram vinyl disc sliding into your hand. The satisfaction of the perfectly flat LP becoming one with the platter. The astonishment at the record’s silence surface. And then, that sound – the brilliant, vivid fidelity – and the euphoric emotion of being there at the creation: inside hallowed recording spaces such as Columbia’s 30th Street Studio, Capitol Studio A in Hollywood, or Abbey Road in London. From the moment the stylus hits the groove, you’re enveloped by amazing performances captured in extraordinary, life-like sound. Music with unprecedented transparency, immediacy and richness of tone. Pristine sound that comes as close to the original analog master tape as is humanly possible. Deep feelings abound as you experience the impeccable craftsmanship of an IMPEX RECORDS audio disc. This is the reward you’ve earned for a deep-seated love of music, your commitment to superior sound and the countless hours and prodigious capital you’ve invested in building a playback system that can transport you to your musical Nirvana. At IMPEX RECORDS, we make 180-gram LPs, 24K Gold CDs and Super Audio Compact Discs of uncompromising quality: exceptional products designed for discriminating listeners with a passion for music and sound.

Our dedication leads to obsessing over every detail of the craft for one purpose: to put you front-row center in the studio, club or concert hall to encounter great music exactly as it was recorded, with the highest of fidelity
