We appreciate your visit to our website and online store. Information about placing an order can be found here.
The Channel Classics site offers both physical and digital download products. Here we explain these products so you can choose what is right for your payback system.
All CD’s and SACD’s that we ship can be played one ANY normal CD player.
If you would like to get the full benefit of the higher quality audio, then please opt for the higher resolution FLAC and DSD files when choosing the product on the album pages instead of a regular CD.
To play the higher resolution layer contained on SACDs, you will need a player that can read the extra information on these SACD discs. However, any SACD disc can be played on a regular CD player.
Another way to get the highest quality is to choose for a DSD download. Channel Classics hosts all recordings made in DSD as .dsf data, complete with metadata and album art. For those who are not familiar with DSD audio: it’s a one bit, 2.8MHz audio format and the closest digital representation of acoustic sounds available. For more in-depth information about DSD, we recommend this explanatory article from Positive Feedback. You can find many more DSD downloads on NativeDSD.com
Playing DSD files
NativeDSD has built an amazing DACs Database that lists equipment and software that will play DSD files. Please look at this document to discover them. The price and quality will not disappoint you.
Please take a look at our ‘Gear’ page on Nativedsd.com. http://gear.nativedsd.com Maybe this can help you finding a DAC, headphones, or cables. If you live in or around the Netherlands, we can also make an appointment if you would like to try different DAC’s.
