Recorded to 96kHz, 24-bit WAV PCM and mixed through an analog stage to DSD128 (5.6MHz). The DSD128 files are the original digital file generation received from the artist or label. The WAV 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 WAV files may not.
After several blindfold tests, it is our opinion that the DSD128 files sound the best, followed by WAV 9624 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.
