In Reply to: RE: According to the booklet, the recording was made in as many as 7 (!) different halls.... posted by PAR on March 11, 2017 at 03:29:24
search "Ravel: Daphnis et Chloé" with a release date of Mar. 16 and...
But it plays only 45 second samples per track at mp3. :-(
They will sell you a 24/96 download for 16 Euros.
Yes, that restriction is typically Harmonia Mundi.
I am going to have to query with them their download offer. Until now their offer for hi-rez only applied to subscribers to the "Sublime" option. For this disc, however they show three prices, CD at 9.19 gbp, 24/96 at 13.90 and 24/96 also at 9.19 but for Sublime subscribers.
Thinks: I may upgrade my subscription for the purchase price advantage plus the two free months. I think I will be staying with them so I am not over concerned at the pay all at once annual fee. However I hope that their downloads are better for metadata than their free Dudamel/Beethoven recording is as I had to spend time correcting it.
Talking of staying with Qobuz I see that Spotify have announced that they are going lossless (date yet to be announced). Subscriptions will be 19.99 (whatever currency). The lossy option remains. That will be some competition.
IIRC, early QOBUZ download deals only played using the QOBUZ player (which claims to be configurable to play up to 24/196).
If that's a real 24/96 FLAC download available at what they call mp3 prices, let us know.
