Nine Inch Nails released a new album today for free. It can be downloaded from http://www.nin.com. I thought it interesting that Trent made available a "high definition WAVE 24/96 (1.2 gb)
better-than-CD-quality 24bit 96kHz audio" version.

It's a torrent that I am getting now, but it is going to take a while. I want to hear it on the Axioms! I'm getting the mp3 version to hold me over in the meantime.

This free download made possible by all the people who've been stealing music for the past 10 years. Sometimes, crime does pay, I guess. ;\)

So I'm done downloading the high quality version. 1.42GB for 10 songs. I either need to burn 2-3 CD's to try this on the Axioms, or perhaps a DVD-A? I've never tried to create one of those, so I don't know how these wav files would work with that format.

Maybe I'll just copy them over to the laptop and hook that up to the receiver and play them that way.

If you burn it onto an audio cd, it will defeat the purpose of the high quality data as the audio will be converted to cd quality. Using the laptop's audio out is your best bet, as long as you're sure it can output at 24bit/96kHz.

cool! downloading the ultra high quality version now. I THINK I can stream wav files to my denon over my network... so this should be cool.

I don't know what the output jack of the laptop can output at. It's an HP 6230. Receiver is an Onkyo SR600.

According to this page, your HP can only do up to 16bit/48kHz, so you won't be able to squeeze all the data out of the audio jack.

Went home for lunch and I thought I could get a sneak peak (or listen) to the album. Unfortunately a storm came through and a power surge reset my computer so the download stopped. I think I am perhaps more interested in hearing the quailty of the recording than what is actually recorded.

I verified that the denon can stream WAV files- not sure how to get the songs to your axioms without networking though. I wonder if it will be a problem streaming this over the network too?

For those who own a PS3 that is networked, can you download the music directly to the PS3, and then play it from there (to your Denon 3808ci of course!)?

What about burning it to a DVD-A? Is this feasible and would it keep the better format?

I'm starting to think I'm not going to have a good way to get this to the Axioms, which will defeat the purpose of the better quality. I can check what my sound card in my desktop. If that can do 24 bit out, perhaps I can get a long cable and run it from the computer to the receiver.
