Music - Reference Recordings HRx Files


Keith Johnson and the team at Reference Recordings have released the exciting new HRx files. These are exact bit-for-bit copies of the original master recording. For the first time ever, music lovers can hear what the recording and mastering engineers hear when they listen to these high resolution files. The HRx files are recorded at 176.4kHz 24bit. These recordings were made using the finest analog-digital converter ever made, that being the Pacific Microsonics Model Two, which it just so happens was also designed by Keith Johnson et al. (For more about the Pacific Microsonics converters click here.)

These HRx files are designed to be loaded into a music server and then played. If you would like to learn more about music servers click here.

Ideally the music server will be connected to a high end digital-analog converter. If you would like to learn more about a high end DACs please click here.

Once you hear them for yourself you will instantly understand why listening to master tapes in the old days was so incredible. Of course few people have ever had access to master tapes. But now for the first time you can experience master recordings played in your own home.
