And I know mastering is a big deal, but it seems like the music I would listen to isn't stuff that is a serious thing with mastering. Like (good!) hip hop, and modern rock (Skillet, Breaking Benjamin etc.), and metal (Disturbed and Black Sabbath and maybe Metallica). Well I was gonna keep an eye out for different masters on the Black Sabbath and I noticed a difference on some vinyl rips of Metallica's black album vs. the streaming (but that's FLAC vs. MP3 anyway) but the other stuff, I mean....*shrug*
I like vinyl and it probably sounds better because of the better mastering and stuff on them for the audiophile market vs. CDs, but I wish there were such thing as "Audiophile" or "Vinyl-Mastered" CDs that were just the superior vinyl master on CD. Maybe that's what SACD is?


The Super Audio CD is inherently limited in the performance increase it offers by the capacity and throughput constraints of the Compact Disc.  I wanted to investigate the possibility of better approaching the seamlessness of analog via the Digital Versatile Disc Audio format, which is capable of at least 24/192 stereo or binaural performance in typical album durations (DVD has already demonstrated 24/48 performance in multichannel audio formats); the Sony® Blu-Ray®, a further evolution of the DVD, is potentially capable of 24/192 multichannel audio.

Hopefully someday soon people will wake up to wanting better audio quality and then that technology will develop further and have more material.

I agree here. SACD does not only offer higher resolution but also way better mastering process.

There's just been a new addition to the Binaural+ album collection:

 

https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?file=catalogdetail&valbum_code=HX090368035967

 

I'm surprised that HDtracks has done nearly no advertizing for the Binaural+ albums since the sensational/fantastic/amazing album. The last 3 didn't even make it to the featured 'New Albums' on the front page.

basshead.gif   Holy cow ... It's hard to believe I didn't pick up on that! 

 

Thank you.
