Bajo esa mirada, es imposible cuestionar la vivencia y liricas potentes del disco de Beck. Dec 12, 2014 - Leaving behind the aesthetic crutch of lo-fi production for a warmer, more-sophisticated sonic template, Krell deftly incorporates a variety of disparate aural flourishes—crisp guitars, jagged and. Beck claimed his latest effort was a spiritual sister piece to 2002's Sea Change, arguably one of his best.

OK, which high res retailer will be the first to publish these type of graphs with an A/B comparison against the CD equivalent (and let’s include an LR loudness rating too)? It would be fairly simple to automate the analysis with off the shelf software (possibly even open source), so I dont think it would be too a high cost to provide this info across the entire catalog. You want me to rebuy my albums at high res? Fine, I want to, but I hate to play the lottery. PROVE to me they’re better!
I dont need to understand all the metrics, production and analysis techniques, but the average non-audiophile should have no problem interpreting a well designed comparison graph. Even if they end up sounding identical to my ear (maybe my hearing sucks or I have crappy equipment or a noisy environment), the visual proof should be enough to avoid feeling hoodwinked. It’s perhaps the difference between feeling scammed on the whole high-res experience, and seeking out better equipment to discover what I can’t presently hear–so I can become a repeat customer. Definitely disappointing to see the Beck tracks rolled off at 16 kHz, given the high profile the album now has, but kudos to HDTracks for at least mentioning the exact amount of 48 kHz content present in the album! That is a step in the right direction towards transpatency, at least. Not sure they could have further explained the 16 kHz/MP3 fingerprint issue given the limits of a small side note like that without thoroughly confusing most customers.
For me we have two issues here one of which is relatively easy to resolve with quality control. Being duped into purchasing a low fidelity recording instead of a pukka Hi res one is like purchasing a Louis viton handbag off the web only to find it’s a fake. Both are damaging to the market and erode customer confidence. As for the justification for all the hype I agree with you it should be handled by the marketing gurus carefully as it’s easy to p*** on your chips as we say in the Midlands.
Hi res is similar to premium pressing vinyl album sales targeted at those audiophiles who have the kit to extract the difference and should be advertised that way. Fun times ahead. Gary has a great point about hi-res retailers publishing graphs such as the ones John provided in this Beck hi-res article, but it likely won’t be HDTracks. I’ve contacted HDTracks many times when the Redbook CD version sounds as good or in some cases better than the HDTracks hi-res version and their standard response is ‘that’s the version the record label provided to us’. Seal’s ‘Best 1991 – 2004’ download is a prime example of HDTracks not doing their homework. Not only is the sound quality of this download not as good as the Redbook CD version, but some of the songs have different & missing voice tracks.
To top it off, HDTracks lists it on their website as 44.1/24 and it’s actually 88.2/24 as seen by my DAC. Well done HDTracks. To their credit, there are some terrific examples of the hi-res version being a worthwhile investment.
Tommy from The Who is a great example. The Redbook CD version is almost unlistenable and the HDTracks hi-res version is superb.
Does anyone know of a simple social media website that rates hi-res recordings from various retailers? We need a Yelp for music downloads. This is truly one of the best audio articles I’ve read in a long time – well, done John! As youve pointed out before, good sound definitely starts in the studio and has less to do with bit rate and depth. Recently, I’ve been exploring the Sharp Nine Records MP3 catalog (all superbly revorded) from Amazon and stumbled upon David Hazeltines New Classic Trio release. Wowit is amazing just how great a 200 kbps MP3 can actually sound when proper recording elements align. Conversely, many of my HDTracks downloads are much less revelatory.
Poop in = poop out I suppose. Looks to me like some of the songs do have information past where the CD would have it. That is my conclusion when I listen to the hi res version. Some songs sound the same as the CD, some sound better. It is too bad people just can’t enjoy it for what it is, a great album that captures the sound the artist was looking for. Does every song take advantage of hi res?
No but so what, some do and I’m fine with that. I feel I have the best version of the album in the hi res download. I’m sorry if you don’t agree. This business that everybody seems to think HDtracks needs to have better “quality control” is just crazy to me BTW. They are a retailer, they are selling a product that is provided to them. Some people will like it some people won’t.
I have personally purchased lots of hi res from all of the different hi res stores and have found that HDtracks is the most forthcoming about the releases and I rarely have been disappointed with what I have purchased from any of the sites that offer hi res. The grocery store analogy is a terrible one since the store doesn’t get rotten fruit from the farmer, it gets rotten in the store. A better analogy would be a record store. You aren’t going to get graphs or DR values or anything from them telling you what to expect from the purchase. Or how about a comic or regular book store.
You don’t know if you aren’t going to like the book or comic you buy until after you read it. You may find it is too boring or the print isn’t as sharp as you would like it to be. It’s still readable but you want sharper or a better read. These things aren’t the book sellers fault, it is what is given to them.
Should they put up signs saying “hey 10% of the customers that have purchased this book are not happy with the print”? No of course not, that is ridiculous. Music purchasing has always been and will always be a crapshoot. You don’t know what you get until you listen to it.
That’s right, I said listen to it. You can give all the graphs and charts and readouts you want but that won’t tell me with certainty whether I will like the way it sounds.
The samples will do a better job than those will and hey, they provide those don’t they? Yes, yes they do. The big grocery stores have quality control practices in place to ensure they only take foodstuffs that meet certain criteria. Why couldn’t hi-res download stores do likewise? “You don’t know if you aren’t going to like the book or comic you buy until after you read it.” That’s also true of the music found in a download or on a record. But we’re not talking about the artistic content and its attendant ideas but the delivery medium.
With a comic book that’s the paper and ink (and not the storyline or characters). You can see in-store if the print quality and/or paper is to your liking *before* you take it to the counter to pay. “Music purchasing has always been and will always be a crapshoot”. That may or may not be the case but with hi-res downloads the crapshoot is easily side-stepped. More info about provenance and quality lets the consumer know what they’re buying *before* they drop their cashola. GREAT post John! There was a big dustup about this album in a lot of quarters, and an interesting back and forth with John Atkinson over at Stereophile who first measured these tracks and noticed the very obvious 16kHz brickwall filters as obvious signs of MP3 compression on at least part of the tracks involved in the album’s mix.
The reason why the album seems to be such a mess production wise is that the various tracks were recorded over a number of years and then kind of slapped together into an album – this wasn’t something that Beck started working on recently. Why you would have certain parts of your mix in MP3 I don’t know, but that’s what was done, regardless of what excuses Ludwig makes. There’s another issue with this album that Ludwig also has no excuse for – it’s WAY too loud. In an interview, even Beck himself mentions being “surprised” at just how loud the mastering is. Nearly ever track is DR5 and hits 0dBFS with hard clipping distortion, except for the last track, “Waking Light,” which is DR3. That’s “Death Magnetic” loud, and frankly Ludwig should be embarrassed to have his name attached to such garbage.
The vinyl incidentally was cut from those same MP3 based mixes as all other versions of the album, BUT they at least backed off of the insane mastering of the CD and HD versions, and as a result, the vinyl version sounds far better. I covered this at the time in my article “A New Low For HDTracks” on my site Metal-Fi. When I wrote that article I thought that the “vinyl experience” MP3 version included with the vinyl purchase was artificially made to sound like live vinyl playback, but as it turns out, it actually was live vinyl. They simply played the record and pressed record. Since the MP3 version came right from the vinyl rather than the typical MP3 coupon that’s sourced from the CD, it sounds better than all digital versions of the album including the HDTracks, despite being “ruined” by the MP3 format. Chris from Computer Audiophile reached the same conclusion on his article on the subject.
Dynamic mastering beats HD formats every time.
