I think the better question is, does anyone have them in 320 kbps MP3 or FLAC available to torrent? :-D

Hi newtian. The act was selfless, and appreciated.... but i fear it may have been somewhat in vain. The advantage of these disks isnt necessarily the musical compilation, its the recoding quality. When i downloaded the albums, i discovered that they were all converted to mp3. Unless these disks were read with paranoia or a similar program, and saved as wave files, they are not what they are supposed to be, or sound like. To be a reference cd, it really needs to be the original, or like i said, read with a software program that detects, and re-reads annomilies, and saved in a lossless format. Also, half the fun is the jacket, as it shows the location of the players on the stage, so you can see if you are projecting an accurate soundstage. Like i said, thanks for the effort, and this is in no-way meant to be rude, as i feel we have mutual respect for eachothers efforts in car audio.

I would be willing to bet that, on any of the sound systems that the members of this board have, you would not be able to tell the difference between a 320 kbps MP3 and straight CD quality. I know I'm not able to on every system I've had in the past.

I haven't opened the files yet, so I don't know what quality we're working with here.

thx guys those were some long upload nights lol

and Hey Hans I know where you are coming from as mp3 is by no means lossless, but for most at 320kbs the loss of top end fidelity is minimal and be eqed up if even neccesary

of course most audio heads will scream blaaaah to mp3s hence the drz9255, and some of the other non mp3 high end transports

but I mainly uped to share with other guy, so folks can get a start on their test cd collection and also to decide which ones are worht the 20 bucks to buy

as I am a firm proponet of downloads, but 90% of the time I buy the albums I like

I dig album covers and liner notes ( I have over 800-1200 cds lol) but sometimes the mp3s suffice

if folks want the lossless (flac, or ape files) I have most of them , but they are 500-700mb each didnt think folsk would wnat to download that much for just a test cd
and yes they do make a difference, up high above 10k , but that also depends on how good your ear is

but if the interest is there maybe we can all set up a irc or soulseek channel


and man when are you gogn to give up those nd12's :)

I dont have an mp3 head..... but i am thinking of installing a harware lossless player in my install. I can tell the difference, but then again, the drivers in my home system were over $1200, and like most of the people on this board, will have ribbons in my car, so the highend is important. I do understand what you mean though. I cant justify spending money on the cd until i have heard it, so you have done a great service in letting people here the style of music available on these discs. As far as the illusions go, i have seen the future nd12, and i didnt like it.... so it looks like i will be keeping all my drivers. I am suprised that you aren't nagging me over the pair of nd-15 i have. Do you still run illusions?

nah man I sold my nd10 and I never found set of the 12's unfortunately I run some a/ds sereis 3 12" now they are sweet

but I like the tc2+, then the IA (only due to the less throw), then the a/ds

I REALLY like the underung sound

Im going to get a LMT from soundsplinter when they come out and run a center consolse sub setup :)


and man Id kill two chickens for those nd15's but I figured youd never sell them, and or I couldnt afford them and Icnat fit 2 cu ft per driver:)


so the new IA's dont look/perform very well?

pm me if you dont want to post it, I was going to buy some 12's try out, id prefer the originals though

Iwish squeek had two
