Sony votes for pcm ?


Recommended Posts

It means they are doing new Rock transfers to hi-res PCM, I think. I don't think the Springsteen catalog was ever transferred to DSD/SACD. If someone knows differently, speak up.

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Path: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Cayin iDAC6 MKII (tube mode) (XLR)>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: Ropieee (RPi3b+ with touchscreen) + Schiit Modi3E to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

If they had done DSD transfers, I assume they would be on Acoustic Sounds.

 

Not necessarily. The labels, for reasons of their own, seem to have quite inconsistent policies about what they license and in what format. Sometimes stuff we know has been transferred to DSD and never released is not made available for digital download, even though there is almost no chance today that an SACD will ever be released.

 

As a side note, noticed that AS doesn't even have, as of today, the PCM hi-res of Springsteen? I'm sure they'd be happy to sell it.

Sony has been supporting DSD on a bunch of devices including smartphones.
