Ok here is skinny: I'm going to take Holst The Planets, Telarc 20 Bit CD, featuring Yoel Levi and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and rip track one (Mars, The Bringer of War). The rip will be with EAC and full 1411Kbps (16/44.1). I will then make 9 more copies of the original ripped file and all the MD5 checksums will match. So a total of 10 files. This will be stored in a folder called round 1. I will make another folder with another 10 copies called round 2. For both folders one file will be randomly chosen. Then converted to FLAC, then zipped, then unzipped, and converted back to WAV and maintain the same MD5 checksum. I will post a password protected zip with a key to which one of the 10 in round 1 and round 2 are the wav/flac/zip/unzip/wav. All file creation / modification times will be the same. This is open to the first 3 respondents. PM me for the FTP site and credentials. You'll have 24 hours after I send the login information to evaluate and PM me your results. I'll screen record the entire file creation process and make it available on youtube after. It's time to put this absurd notion of MD5 identical files sounding different due to conversion or compression to pasture.
