That's not a fair comparison. If I go buy a shirt at Macy's and it turns out the sizing is completely off I can return it. I don't expect Macy's to inspect every shred of clothing to make sure the sizing info is correct because I know I can return it if it is defective. HD Tracks does not offer that option, so not a fair comparison.
Should Walmart preview every product to make sure it's up to snuff?
We're not talking about subjective things like like the performance or the mixing, we're talking about recordings that have been upsampled and squashed. The latter is not an opinion, it is fact that can easily be seen with analog waveform charts. You could argue that some people LIKE those attributes with about as much reason you could argue that some people prefer mold on
Ever stop to think that a crappy recording to you may just be good enough for someone else
Ever visited www.amazon.com? They have a review section on every product they sell and they seem to be doing just fine. I'm actually more in support of them doing a review section than doing the research themselves on albums, let the user community decide.
It's about money kids....reviews on their website will curtail people spending money on not so well reviewed songs/albums
I believe DSD are all fully in the digital domain and they're some of the best recordings I've heard, too bad the music doesn't interest more.
Would it not be safe to say that all digital files regardless, start out in the analog world
