I have my first 24bit/192kHz USB DAC, a little cash, and I want to buy my first 24bit/192kHz album... baroque.

 

Ideas?

 

 

Edit: I found this list, I will be browsing these tonight, trying to decide on which label and album. :)

 I think this thread is the right one to mention a good deal  on amazon

  http://www.amazon.com/Freiburger-Barockorchester/dp/B0054MEHZ8/ref=pd_luc_sbs_03_04_t_lh

Freiburger Barockorchester may not be the most flamboyant baroque group  out there, but they have a solid reputation and a knack for finding and recording off-the-beaten-track works. Here is what they have in this collection (which I have just ordered)

There's a lot of good high-res files for free at this link: http://www.2l.no/hires/

 

If you have a 24/96 or 24/192 sound-card/DAC, I recommend trying the SoX resampler for foobar, so you can downsample the 2l.no/hires files on the fly, or upsample your regular 16/44.1 music and see what you think, you can find SoX here: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?s=2a12ac29077b1014274e1a1eef2ff413&act=attach&type=post&id=6470
