High quality hires recording section on the upcoming new PS Audio website?


#1

Is it a good idea to have a high quality hires recording section on the new (upcoming) PS Audio website? In such a section we can put hyperlinks to e-stores with very good PCM24 and DSD files!


#2

I was thinking of creating a list of such stores and keep it up to date. This is something we can do now in this forum. *-:slight_smile:


#3

I don’t believe a list with hires stores is sufficient. We realy need to know what hires recordings are excellent. FYI: some recordings on Linn records are bad and some are excellent…


#4

If we create a category for this and solicit input comments on the SQ of particular releases, how do we keep it organized and tidy so it is easy to navigate?


#5

Well the same apply to CD’s not all are good and some are good for some people and bad for others, YMMV. So a second list of good or bad recordings can be done to.


#6

Please skip the list with bad recordings…

I am not sure how to organize this. It might be difficult. @Gordon: maybe you can discuss this with your PSAudio contacts?


#7

Maybe an web input form can be created to submit your hires recordings with predefined fields such as Composer, Artist, Album Title and url.


#8

At the moment we only have the present forum format to work with.

There is a new web site in the works so perhaps it will allow more flexibility.


#9

I opt to think about it using the new website. What could be an option is to create a dedicated page with these high qualiy hires recordings. This dedicated/separate page could then be maintained by one webmaster (Gordon?).


#10

There must be a forum and/or list like this already somewhere.



I do not suggest this forum should not do so also, but there may already be some nice resources out there already.


#11

I have not found any good (= non commercial) websites with high quality hires files…

A good starting point for a list of DSD Download stores would be the DSD Database list that Ted Brady and Jesus R of Sonore maintain.

@bmoura8@comcast.net That is excellent thanks for share.


#14

Using Google Docs for the high quality hires music files is indeed a very good idea!

@Gordon: could we use this in the future?


#15

This might be useful on how to embed a live Google Docs spreadsheet into a webpage:

Glad to share the info.

On the list of Quality Hi Res recordings, I'd suggest a list of favorites that music fans could use with the DirectStream DAC.

Could be a list of some of the really excellent DSD Downloads now available (like Crossing by David Elias, Somethin' Else by Cannonball Adderley, Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section, Count Basie & the Kansas City 7, The Nat King Cole Story, Blood, Sweat & Tears, etc.) followed by an indication of how many forum members voted it a favorite.

That would be handy information for new DirectStream owners.

i suspect the list of enjoyable albums will grow with the new DS as even older recordings tend to sound better.

#18

That’s true, some old Philips recording for instance are fabulous…

Yes that’s true but some recordings on e.g. Linn records are bad and some are excellent…
