Sorry if everyone already knows this but following a recent read of another Hi Fi mag, came across reviews of Eagles Hotel California + others.

Anyway, just assumed it was sourced from HDtracks which is now 'out of bounds' to anyone in the UK. I was wrong, however, as it came from Highresaudio.com which is a German site (English translation available). I registered and discovered it had a good selection of pop and rock although much less currently than the American site.

The real surprise though was finding a hi res download of Donald Fagan's new album 'Sunken Condos' (without the 'm'). Had to stop a pre order on Amazon for the Cd.

The downside to the site is the expense. Still borderline rip off I'm afraid,

I wonder how it's been abused though re: loudness wars??? It guts me really! all the potential is there but so much modern music is abused

www.qobuz.com based in europe france

used to use hdtracks but think copyright only allows usa clients

could try a usa proxy server
not any more - you need to confirm a billing address.

From what I can see the tracks on that French site are either 320kbs mp3 or standard CD res. Couldnt find any 24/xx tracks anywhere, in which case might as well buy the cd and rip it.

I find it remarkable that the UK doesn't have it's own mass-market hi-res download site like mainland Europe and the US

The land which gave The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to the world, and to buy hi-res music you either have to 'hack' into a US website or have your knowledge of French and German tested
