I was looking at some discs at Chesky's site and they have a couple of free downloads from the Area 31 disc http://www.chesky.com/core/details.cfm?productcode=SACD288 . This disc is in David's personal top 10 list. One of the tracks available for free is "The Girl from Guatamala". He says,
"
Now let's listen to Track 4, "The Girl From Guatemala." This is my all-time reference for a female vocal. The soprano is about 10 feet behind the mike. You hear her delicate voice right in the center of the orchestra. This track is a great speaker crossover test as her voice should be seamless from the low to the high ranges. Here, should be a sense of coherency to the voice from octave to octave. There should not be any suck-outs or brightness in the frequency range."

These tracks won't give the sound of the disc but they are still pretty darn amazing!

There are handful more. Rather than link to them all I'll tell you how to find them. Go to Google and enter "free download site:www.chesky.com" without the quotes. Each link will be to a page with free downloads by a different artist. On the Google search results page it might say that some results were omitted. Click the link to display those results since they are to more songs.

There, fixed the title.

Also, I don't think they'd release the files for free, at any better quality than the 192kbps MP3s, because they want you to buy their physical discs.

Thanks for the title correction. WHen I first saw the original title, I thought it was the "mp3" that was incorrect (why 192Khz with a lossy compression?) and that it was 192KHz FLAC or some other encoding. This now makes much more sense!

I thought it was a nice teaser for them. Even in a lossy format the tracks from Chesky still sound amazing. It convinced me to order their setup disk and their test disk for both my Father and myself.
