  • Burning hi-res to CD for testing CD players.

    For testing CD players my favourite disc is a hi-res download of the Donald Fagan’s Kamakiriad burnt to CD. Yes I know it’s 24/96 and burnt to 16/44 it shouldn’t sound different but it does. It must be down to engineering but playing the original CD against the hi-res burn is night and day different. This doesn’t work with all hi-res files but it does with some of the better recorded material.

    I wonder if there’s a Hi Res version of The Nightfly. That would be my go-to from Donald Fagan.
