Head-Fi and HDtracks (David Chesky) Collaborate to Assemble A Headphone System Test Album! - Page 6

Guys, so what is an *easy* way of converting FLAC 24/96 to 16/44 Flac?
Adobe audition 3 does not support flac, maybe I should simply let Nero do it and burn to CD and then back to Flac?

Very interesting concept. I'm a big fan of Chesky Records so this is a no-brainer for me. Downloading now.

fixed!

Only me who feels like being kicked in the backhead on track 3 lol

I download the album in 24/96 FLAC and got problems with track 1 & track 2. I think during the download something went wrong. I've sent hdtrack an email still waiting on the reply.

From track 3 to 12 they all work fine.

Although this is suppose to be for headphones but they sound great on speakers too...

Nice. The 24/96 tracks sound good even on my lesser headphones.

Downloaded on Saturday and listened during the week end. As expected the recording quality is excellent, but I've got some doubt about the artistic quality (some tracks are simply too distant from what I usually listen to).
But it is a nice idea, well done :-)

Great record! Thanks to all involved!
Funny how listening to this record gets your ears "in the mood" for critical listening.
I listened to this, then followed it up with Richard Thompson's Action Packed: The Best of the Capital Years, and my ears are hearing subtle touches i've never picked up on before...

So I was a little bit skeptical at first... and the download manager stalled on me first use... but man.. once I got my soundcard set at 24/96 a huge grin appeared on my face. this HD stuff is great...

I really wish my favs were recorded like this

That's exactly what I did and it works without a problem

It's free , son anyone could download them

Hey, I can't find any sample on the HDtracks website. Can you give me the link?

Is anyone else using a Xonar STX? I can't get track number 7 to work with foobar2000... says

"Unrecoverable playback error: Unsupported stream format: 88200 Hz / 24-bit / 2 channels"

Any thoughts?

Thanks

EDIT: using kernel streaming output fixed it... but neither WASAPI or ASIO will work :/

The bass tracks will test your Ultasones. They sound awsome with my Ed8.
Apart from being a "test" cd, as I have previously said, it is full of simply great music, and for me stuff I wouldn't have normally picked up.
Another of those collections. Great. They're very good value.

You should also check out "The Ultimate Demonstration Disc Vol:2" That makes for a nice collection.

There's also "The World's Greatest Audiophile Vocal Recordings", a wonderful collection of stunningly reproduced vocals. Another great piece of value.

Both are also available at high definition.
