In celebration of their expansion from single rate DSD (DSD64, SACD resolution) music downloads to offering double rate DSD (DSD128, 2x SACD resolution) and quad rate DSD (DSD256, 4x SACD resolution) music downloads as well, the NativeDSD.Com web site has launched a new section called "Just Listen". It is currently in the final stages of testing but worth checking out.
Just Listen Sampler # 1 offers 8 tracks, 3 of which are available in 5 Channel Multichannel as well as Stereo. One of these was natively recorded at DSD64 - and is also available upsampled to DSD128 and DSD256 to show how upsampling affects the music. But the other 2 tracks are recorded and available in 5 Channel Multichannel Sound at DSD256 resolution - 4x the SACD resolution level as well as downsampled to DSD64 and DSD128 for fans that don't have DSD256 playback capabilities. Very nice!
The Stereo Downloads are shown on the left side of the screen and the Multichannel Downloads are shown on the right side of the screen.
Drop by Just Listen if you own an Oppo 103/105 player (it can handle the DSD64 files) or an exaSound e28 DAC (it can play everything on the list at all resolutions, including 5 Channel, Quad Rate DSD256). You'll need to create an account (free) and sign in before you can download the files of your choice.
A lot of fun for music fans. Enjoy!
