I hope that this question does not derail this thread but has anyone compared hi rez downloads from Linn, HD tracks etc. with SACD recordings? Does one sound better than the other or are they pretty much equal?
I'm curious because I have been downloading hi rez classical files and have been thoroughly enjoying them and I always wonder if I'm missing out on quality recordings.
For me it is very convenient to be able to sample and download music and then store it on a hard drive. With back-up systems such as time machine on macs there is almost no risk of file loss. Not to state the obvious, but it seems clear to me that computer audio is the future and that audiophiles are already gravitating to this form of music storage and playback.
