Which album & track #?
Audiophile: There is almost no other group that prides themselves more on wasting good money on utterly worthless ****, and then trying to furiously blow smoke up their own ass to justify it.

Free your mind...and your ass will follow.

I have been listening to CD vs Hires quite a bit last few weeks. A lot of the time I found the "thin" sound to be the fact that thay changed the dynamics of the original recording. I figured this out by listening to a few vinyl rips and they correspond to the 24/96 track. I will listen bit to Purple rain and hear  :thumbs:
I was born analog, not digit by digit....

I have bought Rush- The Spirit of Radio in flac, not to impressed. Also bought Acoustic Alchemy - Roseland in flac 24/96 and was blown away by the quality. I suppose it depends on the original recording and the era. Downfall of getting these formats is the download size about 1.5gigs for 10 tracks, the price you must pay :OMG:
