In this project, as well as excavating out-of-print 78 rpm records with past excellent performance recorded, the sounds that make you feel you are there are reproduced by the gramophone in those days and recorded with the state-of-art technology sound range of 24bit/192kHz. It is the project that practices historically, educationally, and socially valuable activity that leaves "sound heritage" to be passed down to the next generations.
