Think i must buy myself a X-Fi card again so i can enjoy 24bit.( even if it was fake it was fun with a loudness button.) Is there no way to rip a sacd in 24bit?

only if you take the analog output and record that.

Just downloaded the tracks and took a listen Impressive (the classical tracks at least, haven't heard much of the other genres to do a baseline comparison).

Felt that there was greater amount of spatial information in the recording, and greater ease of detail retrieval.

Any idea how much improved recording/mastering techniques contributed, other than being packaged in a 24/96 format?

@xchagg: "Greater ease of detail retrieval" ??
And you're listening this through which set of 24/96-capable DAC?

M-Audio Transit ASIO @ 24/96 to Foobar. It's basic, but Foobar hasn't thrown an error message at me, so I'm assuming it works, somehow.

Greater ease of detail retrieval as in I didn't have to concentrate as hard to follow a specific instrument throughout a piece.

Seeing how my DAC is rather basic, I posed the question on how big a factor improved recording or mastering techniques might have played a part in these recordings.

Maybe I should just resample the files to 16/44 and see if I can hear a difference

It's very hard to hear the difference between 24/96 and 16/44 in my opinion. Or should I say with my ears.

A fair amount of credit goes to the recording and mastering techniques. Chesky records is famous for their painstaking efforts in this regard and I believe that this site was started by the guys at Chesky.

The ultimate demonstration disc vol.s 1 and 2 by Chesky are well known here.

the marta gomez track is very nice, enjoying that in 24/96, downloading the rest on my slow connection

If the DAC don't accept 24-bit files, then you either have to convert the bit depth. Or simply download the 16-bit files...
Some of the fun will be gone though.

Any portable amp/DACs that accept 24/96?

I thought Pico had a 24/96 DAC, but I must be confused.

Does iBasso D10 do this?

Thank you, I'm looking forward to hearing these.

If I'm not mistaken, the Pico's DAC upsamples to 24/96, but only accepts 16 bit 44.1/48kHz inputs via USB.

Wow, that's a drag!

Stupid question because I have no idea: If I d/l them, convert to WMA Lossless with Media Monkey, will they play full 24/96 on my Zune?
That is if Media Monkey preserves the 24/96 in the WMA Lossless file?

THANK YOU!

WOW... thanks!

In addition... these have been posted many times... BUT, some people are new (like me) and haven't also heard of these free Hi-Res download sites:
