Funny, I had a similar issue when I tried to burn a disc using Roxio. It kept putting a few songs out of order. Ended up burning it from a play list in iTunes.

So it looks like HD Tracks screwed up putting the other version on this headphone album, especially when it can cause hardware problems and doesn't match the album's description.

edit: I do have a problem with that track. I have Amarra installed and it can't play through, so it let's iTunes handle it which I believe downsamples. So when I compare the 96K version, I can clearly hear the difference. So I'm just going to make a copy of the good track and place it in the Open your Ears album.

I've reported this to HD Tracks. We'll see what happens.
Well it looks like HDtracks have been listening and has added a note to the page to clarify that track 7 is indeed 24/88.2

On the percussion imaging test (track 9) Richard Crooks starts out playing at 3, 6, and 9 feet, and then it repeats back to 3, 6, 9 and continues on to 12, 15, 30, and 70 feet.

The first time around is clearly in a less reverberant space, but the liner notes don't make any mention of this. Does anyone know any more details?

It's just a curious coincidence, but the bitrate for this track is 2496...

Strange, because didn't someone mention that this same track is available in another album at 24/96? Seems like HDTracks could just modify things and use the 24/96 version to match all the other tracks.

Yes, it's basically the same track but just slightly different play time. It's track 10 on this and indeed in 24/96. They should really swap it out with this:

This is absolutely splendid! This looks very promising indeed. Great idea guys.
post #175 of 274
so, are there people who feel these tracks sound better on headphones than on speakers?

I am going to have to mess with the tagging unless someone has a better suggestion.

I tried that but since iTunes doesn't play flac, it won't let me make a compilation or a playlist, or pull it into iTunes at all. Can I convert 24/96 flac to alac without any loss and then make a playlist?

Yeah you should be able to convert to ALAC without loss, i think someone in this thread said with max you get no loss, and i think that XLD should be able to do it as well. but those are mac applications, but i assumed that if you were using itunes that you must be using a mac too
