Streaming Hi-Res… “Crossing”

Something I’ve wanted to do for a long time…

…is present high fidelity recordings of my stuff to as many people as possible. In the past this has been done using special gear which used to be a lot more expensive than it is today but still requires quite a bit of knowledge and interest in buying and setting up hi-res fidelity.

Today that has improved because they are ways to stream hi-res that don’t require any special hardware at all. I’ve been an MQA partner (artist/content) for over a year now and released a lot of 24-bit downloads of my work.

Now for the first time I have a streaming 16-bit CD version of the hi-res that will soon be on TIDAL and 7Digital/Onkyo as well as Deezer as remastered MQA. This was folded from the 16/352.8kHz DXD remaster.

On TIDAL’s HiFi subscription ($19.99/mo) you can hear full MQA masters and other 24/96 masters from thousands of titles coming from Warner. This includes the likes of Tom Petty, Costello, Black Sabbath, JT, Joni, CSNY, Talking Heads, Emmylou, Albert King, Alice Cooper, Bowie, America, The Who, The Doors, The Band…you get the idea.

With the 16-bit streaming version of hi-res MQA I can print the CDs that will sound just as good. Anyone with MQA decoding at their end will hear the full resolution on these hi-res albums as they get released.

For now, you can try streaming the whole album at the link! It’s not lossless MQA streaming from CDBaby like it is on TIDAL but maybe that’s the point cause it still sounds good.

Aloha!

    David, revelation time — again. Sound quality of the CDBaby stream is phenomenal. I’ve enjoyed this album in other formats and this one seems even more alive sounding. “Morning Light/Western Town” is a knockout. You are there, front and center, clear and deep bass notes rolling across the room, John Havard’s guitar just rips into us from stage left. Renewed by remaster. Thanks for putting this out.

      Dez it’s such a good progression in tech innovation to keep raising the bar on sound quality and at the same time lowering it for delivery, deployment and cost.

      Good quality sounding music should have to cost much more if any more than poor quality deliveries. Mahalo!
