In Reply to: RE: Recent BIS SACDs (and one more non-BIS) posted by Doktor Brahms on March 14, 2012 at 08:38:33
Dr brahms, thanks for that.
Question: Is your Sibelius review on sonics based on 2 channel or 5.0? The reason I ask is that Robert's eclassical download service allows one to download only the 5th (since you poo-poo the 2nd) and in the original (read; not DSD-converted) 24/96, all for $7.52! However, it is of course only the 2 channel version.
I love SACD and DSD as much as anyone (own two DSD-capable DACs), but since BIS's majority of SACD recordings are PCM-based (includng this one), thought I'd ask. I can fully understand, however, if the beauty, etc comes from the multichannel..in which case I spring for the SACD currently. Thanks.....
Sorry--should have stated that my system is stereo only in my OP.
Great, that means obtaining the master files for the Sibelius 5th for less than $8 and playing them on your 24/96+ DAC of choice. (thumbs up).
Brahms horn also, but 88/24.
The new releases are being offered at the 44/16 price for the higher resolution downloads, at least for a while. And the older albums are being offered 50% off, one randomly each day. Very good music site...
