Pentatone (stylized as PENTATONE) is a Dutch classical music label located in Baarn, Netherlands. The name comes from the words penta (five) and tone (sound), meaning five channels of sound. The label is renowned for its high-resolution multichannel surround sound recordings which are released in the Super Audio CD format. The label has also licensed recordings made by other labels such as Philips Classics and Deutsche Grammophon. Among these are recordings from the 1970s which were originally recorded for 4-channel quadraphonic sound. Pentatone has remastered them for re-release and presented them in surround sound for the first time. Pentatone's hybrid Super Audio CD discs can also be heard in 2-channel stereo on conventional Compact Disc players. (Rondo DB)
