Thanks Norman.  Nice way to compare one's DSD-capable DAC at DSD and 24/192 since analog music was converted to both directly (at least that's how I read it).

Edit:  Yes, Mr Sommer confirmed to me in an email that there was no mastering at all, just clean analog transfers to either PCM or DSD.  The redbook, of course, is a downsampled PCM version.

I am unable to download the PCM versions.   :scratch:  Can someone please tell me how they were able to do this?

This is one sweet sounding track! The 24/192 is louder than the DSD though...cant say which is better as its too late here.

Here are a few more free DSD and 24 bit very hirez songs.  Kent Poon's Audiophile Jazz Prologue series has been mentioned before here on the Circle, but this time he offers both DSD and 24/384k samples (as well as 24/192, etc).  The only rub is you'll need to register; takes 2 minutes.

I'm gonna make this topic a sticky, and add to it whenever I (or Circle goers) see additional free DSD song samples.

Don't forget to register with Cookie Marenco's BlueCoast label for a treasure trove of monthly free DSD downloads (including 26 free DSD songs from CAS2011, CAS2012 and an alternate version of Slow Day, currently in her download section).

The Nordic label 2L has taken their wonderful DXD-based surround files and converted them to DSD (for their SACD releases, mainly).  There are now 10 free tracks of multichannel DFF on their test bench website.  Morten claims they did it in response to the Oppo announcement...so it's working.  :)

Also worth noting is that they have also added (in the past month) a column for their 2 channel DSD128 samples too!!  Nine of them!!

What is the secret to unzipping the 2L DXD files? If I double click the zip, it creates another zip.

I'm sure I'm being thick here.  :duh:

Thanks.  Good compilation through Dec 2012.  Missing newer sites like Opus 3 (dsdfile), etc.

I follow John Dario on YouTube, and his webpage etc.

He’s arranged a free download that maybe of interest here. Ambient sounds.
