How were these transferred to digital format? I'm quite underwhelmed by the sound quality of Morning Phase, so I have to ask.

Hi Doublea71,

 

We can only provide information on how these albums were transferred if the label provides us with that information, and in this situation they haven't.  We can however, say that every single album that is released on HDtracks is tested for resolution and bit depth validity.  Including the morning phase which many people are very happy with the sound.

Right, but can you specify which version of the remaster this is? Is this based on the 2014 remasters, the 2003 SACD remasters, etc.? That will at least give us an idea of how they were mixed.

The charts seem like they indicate the 2003 SACD remasters, but that is only for these three albums.

Yes seem, we can't say for sure because we weren't told exactly which masters they were and you know what happens when you assume.  We can tell you though the resolution and bit depth is valid. 

 

This is exactly why we dont put the info because you are not happy with the answer.  You want us to tell you something we don't know.  How is that possible?

One reason HDtracks makes me uncomfortable... trying to sell to audiophiles with no clue what the source material is? I realize that would take more negotiation with the labels and all, but... seriously, how do you expect us to react? 

 

Anyway unless it's some brand-spankin'-new master, nothing touches the MFSL releases of Dylan, IMO.

Interesting discussion on a computer audiophile site shows how hard it is to pin down the best digital version of a release:

If you weren't told, why not just send them a quick email and ask? It's a reasonable question.

Hi.

 

I appreciate you participating on the forum here, and can't express how great it is to have a high-resolution alternative to the iTunes lossy juggernaut.

 

I did want to ask what you mean specifically by the above statement.  Are you stating that you have verified that the data itself is 24/96 (or whatever is stated)?  Or do you mean you have verified that the waveforms were indeed sourced at 24/96 or higher?  (I am not sure if this is even possible, but curious.)

That's shocking. As a HD Tracks customer, this makes me more than a little hesitant about purchasing from there.

They need to provide more information about the source of their tracks. Saying 'We don't know." is not good enough IMO.

It`s not good enough and it`s more than a little bizarre.  I`m also an HDTracks customer, or was, and I find their attitude completely unacceptable.  This is an enthusiasts` market: we know what we want, and it`s often quite specific.  I`m into the details.  That one of the main sources of this content, that charges for their services, can be so blasé about their own lack of knowledge is really lame.

 

I`ve been toying with the idea of undertaking the PS3 hack and it`s suddenly become much more appealing. . .
