Thanks Chris.I really like one cut in particular, Spanish Harlem, in 24/96 FLAC on the HDTracks site. It's a Chesky recording also, and is from Rebecca Pidgeon's The Raven album. I'm not a fan of the whole album, but it's nice to be able to buy one song. You can buy it off her Retrospective collection (or Chris's fave above, the Worlds Greatest Audiophile Recordings) for $2.49 in FLAC format.I had this song in various collections, all redbook, including a Chesky test disc where it was used as an example of soundstage depth and tonality. Well.....the 24/96 version is worlds better and is a permanent fixture on my evaluation playlist. Just listen for her intonations, slightly Celtic, and when the percussion begins stage right. Very realistic.

Likely converted to Wavpack, as I do. FLAC is fine but if you transcode-on-the-fly in Squeeze Center (i.e let the server convert to PCM before sending over the net; few do this but I think it sounds better that way) FLAC has a bug in certain SC versions that doesn't allow that above 44k (redbook). I think George was following my lead on that, but maybe not. Otherwise it would be FLAC, which I do for all redbook anyway.
The Glory soundtrack has long been been an Absolute Sound recommendation and audiophile favorite on CD, so I thought I would try the hi-res 24/96 DAD from Classic Records. This absolutely smokes the CD and is an awesome demo.
Lee, I've never seen it available as a download, but Elusive Disc has the 24/96 DAD for a great $14.99 price right nowhttp://www.elusivedisc.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DAD1008
Wish it was available as a download, so much easier to deal with. I'm addicted to downloading hi-rez music...Lee
Is there any way to rip the DVD to FLAC?Quote from: ted_b on 23 Jun 2009, 01:00 amLee, I've never seen it available as a download, but Elusive Disc has the 24/96 DAD for a great $14.99 price right nowhttp://www.elusivedisc.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DAD1008
Here is another recent favorite--Gershwin "Rhapsody in Blue" from HDTT. Even if you're not a fan of symphonic music, this is so recognizable and a great demo.
