I thought I'd create a "breaking news" area where we can post new announcements about the Hirez industry, whether it be new discs, new DACs, new players, etc.
Yeah, I've spoken and emailed with Barry a few times. He's a big HiRez fan and uses thes Metro Halo as his DAC at home too.
Not sure this qualifies as hirez "news", but I just came across a recording studio that puts out 24/96 DVD-A's (at least has one and others coming). Their first DVD-A has some great music - folk/bluegrass style. See http://www.soundkeeperrecordings.com/ Came across it as I was seeing posts by the audio engineer over on Steve Hoffman's forum re DAC's.
To be clear, the 24/96 disks from Soundkeeper are not in DVD-A format. They are in standard DVD-V (video) format, with stereo 24/96 PCM audio tracks, which have been part of the DVD-V standard since the beginning. This means they will play in almost any DVD video player.Those who want to use an external DAC with the DVD players, should ensure the DVD player's internal menu is set to pass 96k from its SPDIF (digital) output. Many players default to 48k and will decimate the audio on our DVD-Rs (in more than one sense of the word ;-}), unless the player's menu setting is changed to 96k.Best regards,Barrywww.soundkeeperrecordings.comwww.barrydiamentaudio.com
Barry,Welcome to AC, and welcome to my HiRez Circle. Folks, Barry is a player!! He formed Barry Diament Audio 1987 when he left Atlantic Records to become an independent audio engineer. He'd been a music lover, amateur musician and audio hobbyist since childhood and a professional audio engineer since 1975. Having cut tracks, recorded overdubs, mixed tracks, edited tracks and mastered for vinyl, in 1983 Barry became one of the first engineers to master for CD. Aside from his work on location and in the studio, he enjoys writing about audio. A number of his articles have been published in The Abso!ute Sound and in MIX Magazine.In addition to the recording, production, mastering and editing work he's done since starting BDA, Barry has worked as a consultant, designing systems and studios for recording, mixing, mastering and playback. He's also very involved in remote recording and mixing....and is a forum contributor on a number of online forums, especially Steve Hoffman's. Barry is also a HiRez DAC enthusiast and is experienced in the Metric Halo DACs as of late (for professional and personal use).P.S Barry's site also has a nice comparo of cd and hirez resolution differences. http://www.soundkeeperrecordings.com/format.htm
Hi Barry, Any plans to offer your recordings via download in 24/96 WAV or AIFF? I would pony up a buy them that way in a heartbeat.Peace, Lee
I thought I'd create a "breaking news" area where we can post new announcements about the Hirez industry, whether it be new discs, new DACs, new players, etc. July 13:For all us King Crimson fans, it's been known for quite awhile, via Robert fripps blogs, that they've been working on a complete remastering of the catalog. Well, the first three discs were announced today:To celebrate 40 years of the Crimson Kings, DGM & Panegyric proudly announce the release of a series of CD/DVD-A editions of the original King Crimson studio albums.Each CD/DVD-A release features the full original album plus bonus tracks on the CD. Two of the titles ? Lizard & In the Court of the Crimson King feature entirely new 2009 stereo album mixes by Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp.The DVD-A presents each album fully remixed into stunning 5.1 Surround Sound with Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) in the producer role and King Crimson founder member Robert Fripp as executive producer.The 5.1 mixes are accessible in full MLP lossless audio on DVD-A players & DTS 5.1 on standard DVD players/DVD Rom drives. Additionally, High Resolution stereo is also accessible on the DVD-A (24/96 DVD-A & 24/48 DVD/DVD Rom).Selected DVD-A titles in the series will also feature era specific, rarely seen, King Crimson video footage. Each album is presented in a double Digipack, with booklet artwork featuring new sleeve notes by Robert Fripp and King Crimson biographer Sid Smith alongside archive material and photos, enclosed in an outer card slipcase.The first three titles are set for release this year with further titles to follow throughout 2010:Red: September 21st 2009In the Court of the Crimson King: October 12th 2009 (various editions)Lizard: October 26th 2009Here's the full press release:https://www.dgmlive.com/news.htm?entry=2505Always excited when new HiRez stereo and surround remasters are announced, and even more excited when they are released. Add in the fact that King Crimson is a perfect choice for surround (and Lord knows their catalog needs some updating) and we're in for treats!!
