Annoying DSD artifacts
All of the DSD downloads I received from you exhibit loud, transient "POPS" between selections and sometimes between movements of symphonies. This is NOT true with other sites,(e.g., not so with the DSD downloads from http://www.superhirez.com site which uses a proprietary downloader designed by JRiver) If not "fixable," for comparison, I would like to try the same files in 24/256 FLAC format which sounds close to the same quality via my Aune player.
The best recording of Also sprach Zarathustra,famous one.Many instruments run and run left,right upper,and down.Really,it's Karajan! Very few tape distortin exist,but no problem! Best choice of this one.
Karajan always did (Richard) Strauss well. And this recording, with the VPO, amply demonstrates this. Nice, spacious sound with good stage, but the upper strings shriek a bit in tutti, especially in the Zarathustra.
Superlative Performances & Exemplary Transfers
HDTT takes benchmark interpretations of classic works and through expert engineering allows them to sound their best. Superb packaging and prompt shipping guarantees the recordings arrive the way they were sent. Highly recommended and frequent purchasing is strongly encouraged.
