It's worth it, particularly for #1 Record, which is an audiophile album for sure. Believe it or not, it was state of the art at the time; their recording studio was stacked.

DVD-A is dead. Long live High Fidelity Pure Audio.



 
Honestly, I'm sure the format will be DOA, and it's just a fancy term for Blu-ray audio. I also have no way to rip this, so I can only listen to it in my living room.

I just got the Beatles Stereo USB Apple. It contains all 13 studio albums plus Past Masters in 24-bit, 44.1 kHz. Allegedly this is audio straight from the studio masters. I never had upgraded to the remastered CD versions, so I'm glad I held out for this. Haven't actually listened to anything yet. The files are in FLAC and I'm converting them to ALAC so I can play them in iTunes.

The apple itself is much smaller than I was expecting. I thought it would be the size of a small apple, but it's more like a crabapple. Here it is with my R2-D2 USB drive (and a regular USB drive) for scale.

I knew you would be jealous of my R2-D2.

How much are they charging for this, if you don't mind me asking?

Look's like R.E.M.'s Chronic Town EP has been re-released in hi-rez with little fanfare or detail. It's available from Acoustic Sounds in 24/96 PCM and DSD (basically SACD in a downloadable file format.)

REM-Chronic Town-FLAC 96kHz24bit Download | Acoustic Sounds
REM-Chronic Town-DSD | Acoustic Sounds

I'm guessing this is the same master they used for the 2010 vinyl release, but they really didn't provide any info. Sounds a little more dynamic to me than the tracks on the Dead Letter Office CD, so I think it must have been remastered.

I was just going to listen to the Chronic Town songs off of Dead Letter Office a couple days ago. I didn't though.

What is the point of this story? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

The 40th Anniversary Edition of ELP's Brain Salad Surgery is out tomorrow as a 3-disc release. Disc 3 is DVD-A with two high-res stereo mixes and includes high-res FLAC files.

This is a steal for $17.

Maybe it's a great deal on paper, but it's still Emerson, Lake, and Palmer.

I despise ELP and I love prog. I can't imagine how everyone else must feel.
