New "Pure Audio" Blue Ray disc from the London Symphony Orchestra Label

I have just imported this brand-new recording on the London Symphony label.

A "live" concert of Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Valery Gergiev last October.

Quite a bargain for less than $14, including air mail from Presto Classical.

It contains 2 discs; one is in Blue Ray with a HD 1080p video and two separate digital audio tracks:

5.1 DTS-HD MA 24 bit/192 kHz

2.0 LPCM 24bit/192 kHz.

The other disc is recorded in hybrid SACD/CD format at 16bit/44.1 kHz.

I am hoping this format catches on - as it offers superb High Definition 24/192 Playback for "Audiophiles" as well as standard CD quality.

I am playing it back on a Samsung BD P-1500 BR player using the Toslink output (using the PCM 192/24 setting) connected to a Peachtree DacIt, which (I guess) down converts to 96/24 "on the fly".

 

I highly recommends this recording for critical listening.

I am not familiar with your DAC, but Toslink with 192/24 ?

Don't think this output can handle such bitrate as Toslink is typically limited to 96/24 by its technical specs, which is why your DAC shows 96/24.
