  1. Sound Liaison has released a handy sampler to test your DAC's preference. http://www.soundliaison.com/all-categories/6-compare-formats Test your DAC! Format Comparison sampler Which format is best for your DAC? Every DAC has it's own character, some sounds better using PCM files and some sounds better using DSD files...... Some people find the convenience of FLAC files more important. Here on this page is a list containing 2 minutes of a song in 11 different formats. The song is called 'A Fool For You' and is performed by Carmen Gomes Inc. It’s taken from the album 'Carmen Sings The Blues'. http://www.soundliaison.com/studio-showcase-series/276-carmen-gomes-sings-the-blues All the different formats have the same source file, DXD 352kHz (Studio Master). We used the AUL ConverteR 48x44 for the conversion to DSD and Wavelab for the conversion to the other PCM formats and FLAC. When you compare different sample rates always start with the lowest resolution. During listening don't focus too much, hearing is as individual as taste but hearing is also something which can be acquired, like the taste of good wine. You can choose from the following formats: 1. DXD 352kHz 2. PCM 192kHz 3. PCM 176kHz 4. PCM 96kHz 5. PCM 44kHz 6. DSD 256 7. DSD 128 8. DSD 64 9 . FLAC 352kHz 10. FLAC 192kHz 11. FLAC 96kHz
  2. I must say I find this download very impressive. This really sounds as if being there. The label has a very good track record. Their previous releases has all been 96 pcm, and very very good indeed but this DXD takes it all up a notch. If this is exemplary for DXD recordings then that is what I will be searching for. DXD recommendations please! Sound Liaison; Carmen Gomes sings the Blues.
  3. Indian Summer Sale at Sound Liaison and a generous Blue Coast offer Sound Liaison has started their sale with 33% off on all files and BlueCoast has a 50% off offer if one spends more than 40$. The 2 labels have a number of highly recommendable files.... https://www.soundliaison.com/ http://store.bluecoastmusic.com/
  4. So here is the question. Yesterday I downloaded the stunning DXD 352 recording of Carmen Gomes plays the Blues. I also bought the flac 96 version for my portable media player. Now a friend of mine claims that the label would have done better if they had down-sampled to flac 88 as that is a doubly even multiple. Sound Liaison are selling 352, 192 and 96 pcm or flac as well as DSD 256, 128 and 64 . I believe that they know what they are doing as I find their recordings among the very best available, however another favorite label of mine, Reference Recordings, seems to be doing 176 so ....? are Sound Liaison missing something?
