Blue Coast has some great stuff. If you like Mahler, they distribute the San Francisco Symphony’s Mahler cycle, which IIRC was recorded direct to DSD. LOOONG downloads in DSD, but worth it – I think the performances and recording are first-rate. They still have 20% off on the Mahler, so I’m not sure if the 2 for 1 offer would apply.

Edit: after posting the above, I noticed that the name of this label turned bold with a link to alpinesoft website. The automatic links run amuck again.

While we’re talking about Free Music, don’t forget the new “Just Listen” section of the Native DSD.Com web site.

They have several selections in resolutions from single rate DSD (DSD64) all the way up to quad rate DSD (DSD256) - all free. Nice…
