Mobile Fidelity Silver - Downloads!


Recommended Posts

Interesting. I wonder how that compares with the 44.1/24 Rhino over at HDT?

 

Could it be that AS put it by error under the "Mobile Fidelity Silver" label? The product code is "XWAR97902F44", which refers to Warner rather than MoFi.

 

For instance they also have "Linkin Park - Recharged" = "XWAR41156F44", and that's a Warner download.

Speaking of MFSL, does anybody know what DSD ADC they are using for their A-to-D transfers, and whether this DSD front end is 2X DSD capable? (IIRC it's some in-house developed piece of kit, but I'm not 100% sure). It would be great if they could use that killer front end to do 5.6 DSD transfers, wouldn't it?

Good question. Their initial SACDs were done with DSD DACs from Ed Meitner at EMM Labs.

How come the audiophile labels don't offer downloads? Is it because they want their products to be limited edition?

 

It could be it, or some legal matters - if their licensing contracts stipulate they can only sell a given title in one specific format, they simply can't release it as a download (at least without renegotiating the licensing agreement).

I'm sure it's a licensing issue. The record labels license their albums directly to the download sites today. They could do the same with the reissue labels for download. Depends on title availability, the cost of licensing, would the reissue labels get an exclusivity window for some key albums - or not, etc.
