Info on Formats

from HD Tracks
[ click here ]

The list of file types include lossy formats like MP3, WMA and AAC,

but also lossless formats including ALAC, AIFF, WAV and FLAC HD (up to 24 bit, 192 kHz). Moreover, the DNP-730AE can even playback DSD files (in 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz resolution) over DLNA streaming. DSD is becoming popular among audiophiles around the world. Gapless playback is also available for DSD, WAV, FLAC, AIFF and ALAC files.

you want the very best pressing of the album; pressings vary like the vintages of a wine. Aficionados will pay $1,000 for a “white-hot stamper”. In the case of Led Zeppelin II that means the very first 1969 pressing mastered by Bob Ludwig, which had “such energy and dynamic range” that the record players of the day couldn’t cope, and Atlantic Records ordered the sound to be dulled down on later editions
