Wanda, that bass on there is wicked. I doubt that the music on there will be appreciated by those wanting to make up a test disc though. I would love to see ChrisC sit through that whole song, let alone an album of Erykah Badu.

I might cringe through it!  With earplugs!  No, I will listen to anything, but it does not mean I'm going to rush out and get it.  The best recording I have heard in the past year is a Channel Classics DSD download with Rachael Podger and the Holland Baroque Society playing Vivaldi's La Cetra

Even duct tape can’t fix stupid… but it can muffle the sound

I'm sure that FLAC at 16 bit/44.1kHz and 24 bit/96kHz would be fine.

My initial idea was for a reference list, but of late I am thinking of having it on disc. However, this might cause us trouble. It is simple enough to discretely share copies of tracks  :shh: , but doing so on a large scale... hmmm...  :nono:

can it cause problems if you dont sell it or charge for it ie make a test disc and give it free to attendees of Hi-Fi club meetings etc .... does anyone know the actual law in this regard (ie confirmed with no speculation)

I am Not sure of this is just music or movies as well. House of flying daggers makes for some good reference material
