    HDTracks Discount Code

    I used to buy music from HDTracks. But today, with the ability to stream Hi-Rez music (Qobuz) and upsample any CD-quality music, I have not bought anything from them in several years. Early on, I thought that they had a good business model but I am not so sure anymore.

    Re: HDTracks Discount Code

    I do purchase downloads from HDTracks now and then. I used to buy much more but recently been buying albums to get a reasonable vinyl collection built up. Since I prefer to own my music versus streaming HDTracks is a big source. Also, anything I download is higher resolution then whatever I could stream . To me CD is the absolute lowest quality level I will consider.

    Lately been making some purchases from Acoustic Sounds because they have an over the top selection of vinyl.

    Since I use HQP, any music that I stream (even plain CD-quality music) is upsampled and converted to DSD512. That is actually a higher resolution than the 96/24 or DSD64 downloads that I bought from them. Give it a try Randy, I know that you use HQP as well.

    Re: HDTracks Discount Code

    Yup, definitely Nico, but I am also a firm believer in better in better out. I believe the higher and/or better the file going into HQPlayer the better sounding the end results (or course with other variables).

    I mean a CD rip upsampled compared to a high resolution download or a SACD rip sounds better when upsampled with HQPlayer. Of course I know there are other variables, such as original production quality, etc. Just an in general rule of thumb which seems to be true to me; as always YMMV.

    Anyway, I just thought it would be nice to have a thread for HDTracks discount codes. If other AS members don't want to use them that is totally up to them.
