just cuz it's supposedly legal in romania doesn't mean they actually have a license to distribute said music

Though it was only a passing mention, and not exactly answering the OP's question, the idea of getting music at the library is GREAT. After reading that, I visited my largest local library and came back with 6 CD's in glorious lossless. Personally, after I've ripped a CD, I quickly get over them, as I now prefer to have my collection immediately accessible on my (triple-backed-up) 2TB network hard drive (195GB and counting..).

The library won't add to my personal obsessions in music, but it's very good for a lot of must-have jazz and classical music, all for free.

https://www.hdtracks.com/ sells downloadable music in FLAC or AIFF format (also 320K Mp3, but why bother?). $12 per album. $1.49 per track. They also have a selection of 96kHz/24-bit and 88kHz/24-bit ultra-hifi music. $18 per album, $2.49 per track. No DRM.

They have a pretty wide range of musical styles, but more Jazz, Classical, and Blues than other genres. Exceptional recordings, but not a lot of mainstream music.

CDs from Amazon are generally cheaper, though, and available from all the mainstream labels. But you have to look harder for recordings that approach the quality of those from HDTracks.

I'd get the 96khz/24 bit albums if you're going to buy from HDtracks. I recently wanted to see what all the hubub was about with 96khz (already knew about 24 bit) and I didn't really understand how having 50 000 more inaudible frequencies was worth the money. So I imported some stuff from reason at 44.1 Khz 24 bit and 96khz/24bit and there is a pretty significant difference.

I looked it up and what I understood was the DAC's have an easier time at processing 96kHz than 44.1 kHz and that's why they sound more natural.


To get back on topic: some band's will sell / give away their music on their websites in flac. maudlin of the Well - Part The Second and http://teramelos.bandcamp.com/ give and sell, respectively, their music in flac / 24 bit on their websites.

Though the 96/24bit recordings are there for downloading at HD Tracks, there are great recordings there that are 44.1/16. I was purchasing exclusively high definition, but am now realizing that I was missing some other good stuff.

88-96/24bit music, as you said, gbacic, sounds more life-like. I was stunned when I first heard them with my Ultra Micro DAC.

A lot of the HDTracks high definition stuff can be bought off Amazon, but you'll have a difficult time finding software and tools to get the high definition recording into a digital format.
