Longtime Axiom fave site, HDTracks, has added even more hd music tracks to their repertoire.
HDTracks recently announced the addition of Warner Music Group to their list of labels and in doing so opened up a wide range of music to audiophiles, including:
Jackson Brown: Running on Empty
Miles Davis: Tutu
Carly Simon: No Secrets
The Eagles: Hotel California
HD music tracks have long been endorsed by Axiom. In an interview with co-founder David Chesky at the launch of the website, his philosophy clearly echoed our own goals:
“Serious efforts have been made throughout history to deliver a pristine live-music experience, from the design of concert halls with perfect acoustics to the building of precious hand-made instruments, to the years of work put in by performers to perfect their craft. We offer the best alternative to those music enthusiasts who will not compromise and accept recorded music that is compressed, flat, lifeless, and represents a mere fraction of the original performance.”
One of the simplest demos we do at our house is to play a song with really great range (for example, kd lang’s version of Hallelujia from the 2010 Vancouver Olypmics – guaranteed to give you chills) – from our iTunes collection on our media server, and then directly from the CD. The sound is really quite good from iTunes, but once you’ve heard the CD version you understand immediately what you’re missing.
