HD Tracks is so bad.

    update: Without explanation, HD Tracks issued refund.

    It seems that some of the tracks were not 24/96--- perhaps my ears have gotten pretty good at discerning sound after all!

    Anybody ever buy a 24/96 file and then run it through some software to convert it to 24/48? I think that process should be pretty smooth/painless (no interpolation/creation of "new" data points, just remove every other one)... but in practice I want to make sure that a piece of software isn't going to somehow "do it stupidly" instead of what seems like should be obvious to me.

    My DAP only supports FLAC up to 24-bit 44.1 kHz and 24-bit 48 kHz, if anyone is wondering why I might want to do such a thing... that and I'm personally skeptical of the value of sampling beyond 48 kHz (Nyquist Theorem), but I do believe in the granular benefits of 24-bit and that dr.loudness-war often shows more dynamic range for the Hi-Rez version than the CD 16 bit/44.1kHz CD version...
