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

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)
