Did you know that overseas some labels are re-issuing hi-res albums on audio-only BluRays? Single layer BluRays hold up to 25 GBs of data, so they are the perfect physical medium for super hi-res audio (which can require a few GBs per album).

Most releases are mastered at 96kHz/24bit, with a few at 192kHz/24bit. Every disc includes a hi-res stereo transfer, and half of them have hi-res 5.1 surround mixes as well.

Most have large notices on the back that say “Ultra High Quality Audio. No Video Content.” though they all do have visual menus. And some also include bonus music videos and/or animated lyrics on screen.

A few of the early discs include this statement in the technical specs: “The 96kHz/24bit audio on this disc has 256 times more resolution than a CD, providing greater detail and reproducing the music’s full dynamic range, from the softest to the loudest sounds.”

Yeah, hi-res downloads have been a thing for a while, but with the BluRay you own a physical product, which is great if your hard drive crashes before you have a chance to back it up, or for resale value. You can’t resell a download.

Of course, the first thing I do when I get a new one is rip it to FLAC so I can add the album to JRiver and shuffle it in with the rest of my CDs/SACDs/ripped vinyl/cassettes/downloads. But playing the physical on my home theater is a lot of fun too.

Anyway, just wanted to share my growing BluRay “High Fidelity Pure Audio” (that’s the official name) collection with you. Some of these are the definitive masterings, some are really good but might be second/third best, depending on your ears, and so far only two were disappointing… not horrible, just not as good as they should have been, given the format and other masterings that easily top them.

Tagging notes:
Show information is embedded within the header of each flac file. It will display on any player capable of directly playing flac files. If converted to wav during processing, all tags will be stripped, however audio data will remain unaffected. If you must transcode to a lossy format, do so directly Flac > Lossy. Use ffp to validate audio integrity.Md5 values will change if tagging is altered. B. Proctor 4-2-08
