Music-related Websites

A word about choosing a particular website: 

  • For CD's: Acoustic Sounds is a great site for audiophile recordings. For classical music ArkivMusic is our first choice, since as they specialize only in classical music, their site makes it very easy to find a particular recording—and they seem to be able to fill orders more completely more often than other websites. Amazon many times has reviews that can sometimes be helpful if you'd like to learn more about a particular recording.
  • Downloads: For downloads we recommend that you only listen to Uncompressed files or Lossless Compressed files that are 44.1/16 bit or higher in terms of sampling rate and bits. More information on file types is here. For information on Silent Music Servers click here and here. For info on transferring your CD collection to your Music Server click here.
Downloads - Uncompressed or Lossless Compressed
Link There is a lot of information here - with numerous links to sites for quality downloads

audiophile record label - CD's, LP's, and HRx files.

[Note: It is better to buy the HRx files on DVD-R's (which are 176.4/24) rather than to get them from HDTracks.com if they are then reduced down to either 88.2 or 96/24. However if you are going to get them down-rezzed from HDTracks then only choose the 88.2/24 (as opposed to the 96/24) files as they are superior in terms of downward decimation. Still the best way to listen to the files is at 176.4/24--and HDTracks may be offering them soon at that sampling rate as they recently started offering some other files at 192/24.]
