I've long been touting the terrific quality of Reference Recordings' HRx releases. The HRx 24/176.4 albums provide some of my go-to material when evaluating audio components and insuring audio software is capable of true high resolution playback and is configured correctly. Computer Audiophile readers who've had the opportunity to listen to HRx albums have unanimously agreed that it's some of the best sounding material available today. One thing that should not be overlooked is the meaning of HRx. HRx is a trade name owned by Reference Recordings. HRx means so much more than simply a high resolution sample rate. HRx material is an exact copy of the digital master files directly from Reference Recordings. There is no upsampling from a lower sample rate. Think of HRx as a complete production process that in the end provides consumers exact copies of the master files. Reference Recordings is refreshingly transparent when talking about its production process and how the HRx files are created. This, when listening to an HRx track listeners are guaranteed they are hearing the real deal, true high resolution. Thanks to Reference Recordings Computer Audiophile is now offering two complimentary HRx downloads. Read more for the download links.
A very big thank you to Reference Recordings for providing these complimentary downloads. Readers who would like to purchase the complete album can follow this link to Reference Recordings
