A Cure for the DSD/HRA Download Blues…
Have you had some not so Aloha experiences trying to download some of the big DSD files? 24/192 PCM files are even bigger.
Maybe your Internet connection is not-so-quick. Maybe your provider dings you for the amount of data you download above 2GB or 4GB each month. Maybe you want more than one album worth of files and don’t have the time to babysit the downloads. Maybe you are into 5.0 surround and know how big those audio files can be (average about 400MB per song as DSD64)…
Whatever the reason you can now purchase a single USB stick with the combo of my DSD albums and mixes (2.0 stereo and 5.0 multichannel) that you want.
You can purchase this option through my web page at
The DSD USB Stick offer is good ONLY in the United States!
All my online purchases go through secure PayPal which I’ve used as a merchant online since 1999. They have been a great service to rely on.
If you would like the USB stick shipped to you and do not see the album(s) or mixes combined that you prefer, please reply to this email and let me know what you are interested in.
I ship the USB Stick USPS Priority Mail with tracking and can let you know when it goes out and the tracking number.
You can copy the DSF files from the USB Stick to your PC or Mac or simply plug the stick into your media player like an OPPO and play the songs. Pretty darn simple.
One More Cup of Coffee…
With the launch of Revelation9 at the T.H.E. audio fest in Newport Beach, Calif this weekend, I created my first “curated” playlist of my native DSD songs. The curated idea is not exactly new to me though the term is. It means (to me) that some thought and expression are put into making the playlist for some focused intentions by the curator.
In this case, the curator is me. So my intentions were to create a coffeehouse playlist that reflects some of the power of recording in Direct Stream Digital (DSD) and delivering those mixes to people interested in high resolution audio. All the songs in this playlist are mine ranging in recording sessions from over 10 years ago in Boulder, CO to fairly recently in an offgrid cabin here in Hawaii.
I started my rekindled approach to Independent Acoustic in coffeehouses in the SF Bay Area in the early 90’s. I think coffee and acoustic and DSD for that matter all go together very well.
The Playlist is online for download as well for $15.95. It contains selected tracks from all 3 DSD albums as well as the “Aspen Rose” single. These are stereo mixes.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
