Are you looking for Indian albums in DSD format? I am not sure if we have any Indian album converted into DSD. For western collections there is a few websites which sell DSD files that could be downloaded. Few examples are HDTracks, DSDfile, SuperHirez, Prostudiomasters, NativeDSD, etc
However none of these allow free dowload of the files.
That’s nice, thanks. I checked the FAQ and it says their HD tracks are lossless. The pricing is decent too. Hopefully they aren’t compressed files loaded on lossless format. I’ll try downloading something that I have in CD format and compare. If it holds up well, this can be an excellent source.Saregama (HMV) brings to you a most comprehensive collection of Evergreen Hindi songs, Ghazals , Hindustani, Carnatic & Devotional music to Listen and Download.www.saregama.com
When you add to cart you get two options - mp3 or HD.
HD is actually wav format at 44.1 KHz sampling rate.
I'm not sure if this is correct ,but i have heard that home theatre experts is a business that provides a lot of material for enthusiasts, they are authorised dealers for some brands which I'm not sure specifically.Hello Friends..
Please suggest the best palaces to buy source materials in Delhi/NCR with address.
Thanks in advance.
I too paid for and downloaded both mp3 and wav versions of one track. When I opened them in audacity, I couldn’t see any difference in the spectrums.15+4=19 Rs Saregama fun. Song is mid 70s bollywood song. No difference between mp3 and wav atleast according to me. No content above ~6000hz
Why? If they look similar, isn't there a case to instead go for the mp3 format as it is much cheaper? (Wonder why one'd do that either when the same is available to stream on various platforms!)Though I would recommend to go for wav format even if they look similar.
Looks like they are identical. Maybe their master copy is mp3.Why? If they look similar, isn't there a case to instead go for the mp3 format as it is much cheaper? (Wonder why one'd do that either when the same is available to stream on various platforms!)
Here are the spectrums that Audacity mapped for the mp3 and wav versions of the track I purchased from their site. I couldn't note any difference.
These* are just some of basic (but important) visual information of the content of compressed form of mp3. There are others that I would have to search for as I have forgotten. Remember Wav file is much much larger than mp3. Where does this data go ? The data is truncated or levels reduced or approximation is used to compress. If you look carefully the high frequency low sound level (Purple area on top) has some minute differences in second sample. But since most of listeners do not have high frequency hearing and levels are very low one may not hear the difference. But I see no reason to not have best quality source material (And some times good recording and mastering) after having quality amplification and speakers.Why? If they look similar, isn't there a case to instead go for the mp3 format as it is much cheaper?
