  1. That's certainly part of the equation. Selling files converted to FLAC reduces support questions on how to do DSD to FLAC conversions. As to sales, time will tell. NativeDSD has recently added Analog Tapes, 32 bit DXD, 384k PCM, 24/96 FLAC and 24/192 FLAC to their DSD 512/256/128/64 music downloads and Audio Equipment "Gear Store". I did find the recent comment from Blue Coast Music that their biggest selling format was DSD 256, even though they carry FLAC and WAV PCM files interesting. We'll see if NativeDSD has a similar result after the new format additions.
  2. That's right. On the Beethoven 9th, the post production was done by the team at SoundMirror in Stereo and Multichannel DSD 256.
  3. The new Monty Alexander is also available at NativeDSD Music in Stereo DSD 512, DSD 256, DSD 128, DSD 64, and DXD. It's an excellent album in DSD 256 and DSD 512. Highly recommended! (Native DSD on Facebook says it's in their Top 5). https://www.nativedsd.com/catalogue/albums/2xhdre1187-monty-alexander-love-you-madly-live-at-bubbas/
  4. I've used the iDSD Pro and iDSD Micro BL to play "Higher" and some of the NativeDSD Stereo DSD 512 music files. Works and sounds great!
  5. Speaking of new releases in DXD Stereo and DXD 5.1 Surround Sound, there is also the new "DXD Edition" of Patricia Barber's album "Higher" from Impex Records. Worth a listen! https://www.nativedsd.com/albums/IMP7001D-higher
  6. Patricia Barber's album "Higher" is now available for download in DSD and DXD Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound. https://www.nativedsd.com/albums/IMP7001D-higher
  7. I haven't tried DSD 512 Stereo files with Roon, but the ones from NativeDSD work with JRiver Media Center 26 for Windows (64 bit version) as well as HQ Player 4 Desktop here. I've also successfully played the NativeDSD Stereo DSD 512 files with Tune Browser for Windows. As for Audirvana for Windows, I've had it crash on files at lower bit rates than DSD 512. So I stopped using Audirvana here.
  8. Hmm, I tried editing the .bat file but received this error message with Windows 10 ( was unexpected at this time.
  9. Likely a Roon issue. I routinely play the Stereo DSD 512 files from NativeDSD Music, created with the DSD 512 "EC" modulators in HQ Player 4 Pro with no issues on the iFi iDSD Micro BL DAC using HQ Player 4 and JRiver Media Center 26. https://www.nativedsd.com/homepage/dsd512_music
  10. HDTracks UK has now closed. Following the closure of HDTracks Germany last month. https://www.hdtracks.co.uk/
  11. I've used the iFi Audio iDSD Micro BL with DSD files up to DSD 512 Stereo and WAV/FLAC files with great success. At $599, it's an excellent audio value.
  12. exaSound Audio Design, manufacturer of innovative, exceptional fidelity audio products, has just released the Delta Music Server. It premiered at the Florida Audio Expo, February 7-9, 2020. Built around the Intel i9-9900 8-core CPU, the Delta Music Server offers heavy-duty DSP processing and upsampling with Roon for stereo and multichannel applications. Silent, high-performance hardware and exaOS lightweight operating system facilitate streaming to virtually all USB DACs and Roon-supported audio devices. Roon Core delivers intelligent management of music content stored on hard
  13. Simply.... George! from VDM Records in Italy. https://www.nativedsd.com/albums/VDM03855042-simply-george
  14. exaSound does offer a Mini XLR output for their 8 channel DACs. That's how my e28 exaSound DAC was configured. Works fine in balanced mode.
  15. NativeDSD does sell albums recorded in DXD (24 bit or 32 bit 352.kHz) but not albums recorded and produced at 24/96 or 24/192. That's why the two albums from 2xHD mentioned earlier are not available from their web store. https://www.nativedsd.com/ https://blog.nativedsd.com/sell-albums-multiple-dsd-bit-rates-dxd/ The good news is 2xHD has more Analog to DSD releases coming that will be at NativeDSD.
