  1. If you want to save some money on the new 50th Anniversary Edition of Their Satanic Majesties Request by The Rolling Stones, check out the Stereo DSD 64 Download at Acoustic Sounds. The DSD Download sells for $36.98 vs. $89.98 for the "multi-format" edition with SACDs and LPs in the box. A savings of $53. The final price is even lower if you use the 20% Off Coupon Code that is shown on their website. Nice! http://store.acousticsounds.com/d/128966/The_Rolling_Stones-Their_Satanic_Majesties_Request-DSD_Single_Rate_28MHz64fs_Download
  2. DSD playback with Pure Music

    Last weekend a friend of mine had trouble at his audio society when trying to demo DSD playback. At one point he complained that DSD "isn't ready for prime time." I wanted to demonstrate how (relatively) easy it is to play high-res DSD downloads on a Mac with Pure Music -- even if you don't have a new DAC with native DSD playback. I'm staying out of the fight as to how DSD compares to high-res PCM. (Obviously, it's complicated.) The fact is, there are some good albums out there that were mastered as DSD, so I want to be able to buy them now and play them without sacrificing sound quality or iTunes convenience. Demo on YouTube. For convenience, I did the screen capture using my laptop and it's internal sound card, rather than my main music system with its external Bel Canto DAC (which does not do native DSD conversion). A few months ago I tried Korg AudioGate to convert the files to PCM first, then bring them into iTunes, but I didn't like what AudioGate did to the sound. Some albums showed signs of clipping with AudioGate. Pure Music sounds much better -- even doing the conversion on the fly. The CPU usage is not that bad. Take care -- Mark Block
  3. Blu-Ray Audio

    Not sure if anyone has posted this already, but it looks like Acoustic Sounds just listed a bunch of their Blu-Ray Audio discs that they will be selling. A lot of stuff we've already seen before on SACD but you can count me in for Beck's Sea Change & Queen's Bohemiam Rhapsody in 5.1 Surround, that will be pretty sweet!
