Qobuz- Money House - Friday - Fake Hirez !?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have downloaded at Qobuz the album 'Friday' from the band Monkey House.

This is supposed to be a 192 kHz/24-bit hirez album.

 

Looking at the music information using Xivero's Musicscope, I get the weirdest frequency band I have ever seen

Even  upsampling does normally not show like this.

Anybody an idea what's wrong here?

That looks like it could be a 96 kHz source upsampled using a rather poor filter. Something with a frequency response similar to this:

Here's the spectrum of a random piece of music upsampled using that filter:

I agree, this does not show as a usual upsampling. The basic frequency range going smoothly up to a bit more than 48 kHz can scratch as a regular 24/192 file. The rest is really strange. I would post this example in the Xivero Forum https://forum.xivero.com/index.php?board=6.0. This guys are quite experienced in interpreting the samples from the charts of their software.
