If you're new to high resolution audio, we suggest downloading the 44.1kHz WAV album in the column on the left. This format will play in iTunes without additional setup.
Provenance: West Side Story was originally recorded to 9624 PCM. The 9624 WAV files are the original digital file generation sent to us. The DSD and FLAC files are considered second generation and made from conversions using our Blue Coast conversion methods. DSF and FLAC will offer the convenience of metadata that the WAV files may not.
After several blindfold tests, it is our opinion that the 9624 wav files sound the best, followed by DSF and after that the FLAC 9624. The difference is minimal. We suggest you purchase files for your best performing home DAC. The DAC will make more difference than the file type.
If you have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
