  1. 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.
  2. Whenever I record audio from Youtube or Spotify, The recording normally sounds thin and without body. I look at the frequency spectrum in Har-Bal, and there is a pronounced dip in the frequency at around 460hz and nearby frequencies. I record using Audacity at 24/176.4, I have not tried to record at 16/44.1 yet, but I don't think it would make any difference, it happens no matter what website I go to. I have used Sound Forge as well, the same dip. Of course, I can correct for that dip in Har-Bal, but I am not going to know what the original frequency spectrum is, so I have to do the best I can. I normally download classical or jazz music either at DSD or high-res PCM on Youtube. The songs themselves sound fantastic when I finish recording, very little noise, but again, they sound relatively hollow and thin. Do other people experience the same thing? Is there any way to correct for that, stop it from happening? Maybe it is the built-in sound card?! Thanks to all, I am new to downloading from websites, but not to being an audiophile.

  5. Hello! My name is Dobrescu Gheorghe, i am an independent researcher, student, working at my PhD in waves and math, and i am creating the ideal free music playback software. IT features algorithms created me, one for high resolution resampling, which is able to predict new samples exactly in their natural position. And a second algorithm that can re-create transients, by using a very complicated algorithm, which studies more than a dozen samples, and is able to determine what the musical note was, and how it's transient should look like. I am creating it's user interface to be as elegant as possibl. I am building the ideal music playback software, elegant user interface. High resolution resampling. I invite you to my blog to discuss it. I also accept requests for different features, and want to hear what users want to have from other softwares. Thanks a lot, and if you are interested, please support me, as i am having a hard time creating the software, because of not owning a very powerfull computer.
  6. Just got this email Why not? If they have the files, might as well appeal to as broad a market as possible. I still like to download my favorite albums. If HDTracks or PONO doesn't have something in hi res, i'd consider going to TIDAL for CD quality downloads.
  7. Are we just kidding ourselves?

    I want to believe in high res audio as much as anyone. I want to believe I haven't wasted a fair bit of money at HD Tracks and Linn Records. I believe I've even heard the difference, through a carefully constructed A/B test, between 44.1k/16bit and 96k/24bit files. In the end though, there are a lot of questions I just can't reconcile. First, there is the fact that a great many people don't have amplifiers, preamplifiers, or speakers that will reproduce a signal beyond 20k. There has been some interesting and thoughtful discussion on this point, so maybe this isn't an issue. I’ll let that one go for the moment. Then there's the bit depth. I'm finding it interesting that the s/n ratio on most really good amplifiers is in the 94 - 106db range, which is no where near the 144db required to take full advantage of the s/n of a 24 bit recording. Do amplifiers even exist that have a noise floor that low? If the weakest component in the chain is still too noisy to hear the advantages of the file format, does it make a difference? This is of course setting aside the fact that the best microphones in the world (AKG C12, Telefunken 251, Neumann U47, etc...) are limited to 20k on the high end and have s/n ratios in the 70's (db). Then there is the rest of the signal path (mic preamp, eq, compressor, console, etc...). If any one of these is not up to the capability of the file format, doesn't the idea of calling the end product "high res" fail"? I know there are people who believe that high res is snake oil and that anyone who believes they hear a difference, is fooling themselves. I'd like to hear from the other side though. How given all of these facts, is it still possible for high res audio to provide any benefit at all? To be clear, I am not questioning the value of the format, so much as I'm wondering if the equipment isn't keeping us from ever being able to hear it.
  8. Greetings Folks, For some reason, playing back my ripped SACD's with Aurdirvana coupled to my Devialet leveraging a Weiss INT 202 is causing seriously bizarre play back. Track's volume is variable within a song, fluctuating up and down at any moment. Sounds awfully psychedelic in a not pleasing way! Anyone know what the cause could be? i believe my settings are all good. When i rip the SACD's to PCM with Audiogate, it's no problem. Blech. Help!??
  9. I very much love the Vivaldi interpretation of Dixit Dominus by Negri in the (originally?) Philips recording "Sacred Choral Music Vol. 5: Dixit Dominus RV595, Sacrum RV 586, In exitu Israel RV 604, Introduzione al Dixit RV 635" CD released in 1990. I am really crazy about it. Its like a 300 years old, early fusion of John Coltrane and The Doors ;-). But the sound quality is just awful, spoiling the joy of listening to a loud replay. Any idea which forum I could use to gather some music lovers to join me and approach Philips for a remastering...? Money does not matter... (stupid to say this, but I would be willing to spend more than for another silly 10-20 CDs). Sounds crazy, might be rediculous, but never give up... Any co-maniacs? Any ideas? Thanks guys!
