I hope viewers don't fall into the whole HD/high resolution trap. HD audio (16+ bit/44.1+ kHz) provides no benefits to the end listener...so there's no point in wasting your money on the highest resolutions in that regard. The music itself (recording and mastering) is great on the other hand, and that matters far more than the resolution of the file, if that even makes an audible difference.
I also highly recommend Ottmar Liebert's "Up Close" album, which is another binaural album. I bought both the 16/44.1 and 24/96 versions of the album; don't waste your money on the HD version as it doesn't provide any sonic benefits over the Red Book standard version upon blind tests.
I just got the new Chesky 24/96 album with the discount, thanks Jude!
I might be tempted in buying the 16/44 version and do the abx comparison on Foobar although I gotta figure how that's going to play with the drivers or if WASAPI and Foobar takes care of the bit and sample rate swaps automatically (?).
There were some people at the Seattle meet that swears upon high-res though, although DSD rips so maybe those make a difference vs red book.
