Hi,

Interested in the format, but not much luck looking for just a taste of this HiRes format without spending $45 on a disc. Anyone know or have a free downloadable sample?

Here's a link for free 24/176.4 HRX stuff:

Here's one with Kent Poon's 24/192 samples:

Also, here.  After clicking the link to the 2L website, go to the pulldown on the upper right and go to the "Test bench HD audio files".  There will be a bunch of them at various sample rates, including 24/192.  Follow the steps (name and password):

I used these just to test the hardware and software setup

There's a list on the Bryston thread for places to get hi-rez, some are free

http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=77478.msg739645#msg739645

I found these interesting

http://theslip.nin.com/  Interesting as you can get the vinyl and disc for a comparison

Here are two new 24/176.4 files to download FOR FREE!  They are from the well-reviewed vaunted HRX label of Keith Johnson fame.  They are native 24/176.4, not upsampled.

Thanks to Chris Connaker from Computer Audiophile (CA) for providing these.  And should you be short on conversion tools, it offers them in either AIFF, FLAC or WAV versions.  Nice!

Hi Wayner,

Wayner  :D

Here's a place to get a 24/192 sample as well as the same thing (from the same mastering session) at 24/96 and 16/44:

New German online site www.highresaudio.com has free 24/192 (or 24/96) downloads when you register.

ted,
I heard a piece done by the Boston Symphony Chamber Orchestra, and started checking on how to buy it.  This led me to their home site.  I didn't like that they were selling the digital stream only in  WMA format.  I went ahead and bought the sacd, used off of Amazon, but started to wonder, which hi-rez service offers the best bang for the buck?  And with other formats besides WMA.  I'm not talking about Apple or PC.  PC here.  I'm talking about FLAC, Ogg-Vorbis, and so on.  Boston offers a yearly fee, and I was tempted, as it would have only cost a little more than this CD, but I was afraid it would not have included the selection I wanted.

Lyndon,
This is the wrong thread.  Please post this good post on the "Sites To Download HiRez Music" thread
http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=67909.0

BTW, the $30 one month subscription gives you a dozen 24/88 albums to download (one days work).  Nice deal! 



This thread is about free samples, which I don't see over on BSO.

Will repost, I guess.
Let me know if there is another thread on the pros and cons of WMA vs. ???
Thanks, Ted

Nine Inch Nails new album The Slip is available for free in 24/96 from the official NIN website. I downloaded it as my first Hi Rez album.

Thanks but his thread is for 24/192 downloads.  The Slip download has been around since last year and is documented here, on the correct "free 24/96 downloads" thread.

A new Linn 24/192 sampler that is free.  Thanks to Marius on the Bryston Circle for this heads up.  :thumb:

Make sure you pick the 24/192 (or less if your DAC can't handle)

DLing now. Thanks.

Anyone know about the quality of Linn's sacd transfers to 192? (I'm assuming they're not going back to some original pcm files/tapes).
