Physical Graffiti HD downloads NOT 96/24

Recommended Posts

I just redeemed my HD download code for the deluxe Physical Graffiti boxset. To my surprise they are serving up the main album in 44.1/24 not 96/24 that was advertised. Anyone else notice this? I see over at hdtracks.com they are offering the album in 96/24.

Cheers

What email did you use, or was it the form that they provide?

EDIT: Just tried the link the email and the file-size of the download is bigger, so I'm assuming they've fixed it across the board.

Naw, it's more a time issue with me. I just don't have the spare time to spend downloading...and even if I did, where would I download it? On my phone? Because at present I don't have a computer. I doubt my phone has space to hold all the HD files.

What if I'm still seeing "link expired"?

if you email them explaining the situation, I'm sure they will help you...every attempt with LZ I timed out until I ran out of chances, they are willing to assist you and they should be able to verify your previous attempts

Indeed. I contacted them yesterday about this, and this morning received a "we're looking into this" response. I guess I'll wait my turn.

Wouldn't really work on your phone, unless it can unzip the files and play the resultant FLAC tracks.

The 24/96 files are my go-to versions of the albums. Currently don't have a record player, and I'm able to listen to them on my phone (which is honestly just an expensive music player for me).

Maybe a stupid question but how can I tell if my download is 24 96?

Easiest way is to look at the size of the zip file. It should be 2.77 gigabytes

What Glyn said; plus, most audio players (including the free ones, like foobar2000 or Audacity) actually show you the resolution of the audio.

Add me to the list too. Just emailed them. Curious on how the correct files are going to sound compared to the 44/24.

Just letting everyone know I got my HD download coupon reset. I now have the correct 96/24 download :)

What a difference in sound from the 44k. The 44k sounded tinny with more hiss. The 96/24 is richer and fuller in everyway. When I first did the download and played it, my thoughts were disappointing because it was flat. Only after reading this issue on this forum did I realized what had happened. What great forum!!!
