I did purchase Beck at HDTracks, some contend that it was sourced from the cd master, which is Red Book Quality, and not Hi Rez. 


This kinda stuff annoys me:



And how are you supposed to know what you're getting from HD tracks? That's annoying as well.


What makes it less annoying is that I probably couldn't tell the difference anyway, so I can just go for the cheapest option lol

Word of warning on the Beck...this is not party music! He basically has 4 tempos...slow, really slow, dirge, and "does this guy still have a pulse?" beautiful stuff, though.

People need to realise that HD is a scam because its theoretical benefits aren't even appreciable by human ears. There's a potential benefit resulting from other factors if the files on HDTracks come from different sources than the standard releases, but HD has nothing to do with it. Everyone could save themselves some storage space by avoiding that stuff.


Don't take it from me, take it from a genuine expert: http://people.xiph.org/~xiphmont/demo/neil-young.html

Y'know, u can find experts on any side of an any subject...
Good sound is complex, Many factors come into play. Analog vs digital arguments have been going on more than 30 years. The difference is likely multifactorial, but many think the original Red Book standard is a big part of it. That doesn't automatically make a larger file better than CD quality, but other things being equal, my opinion is that the sound quality improves.

Boy, I just can't win. I purchased the 850's about 4 or 5 days before the price went down. Just purchased the Doppios last week, and now the price drops this week. Timing is everything.

anyone here tried the sennheiser ie80 with galaxy silver cable? I find it way better than all my previous iems namely w4,um3x,gr07,fx700,etc.

Doesnt sound like an in ear and has a super big soundstage that rivals headphones. Id compare this almost to my UM merlin

Ok, so I tried to get the Doppios through one of the services, couldn't get it to work, gonna take it as a message, "you don't need any more headphones". There, feels better...
