I have downloaded many forms of stereo Hi Res from Flac to DSD and all play well on my rig. I have never purchased a multichannel download. If I purchase one of these DSD mch downloads will my rig pick it up just like a mch SACD?

Conductor Jaap van Zweden will become the New York Philharmonic’s next Music Director in the Orchestra’s 177th season. To celebrate, Native DSD Music is offering all 7 of his Stereo and Multichannel DSD releases in our music store at 10% Off using the Coupon Code ZwedenDSD through April 3rd.

"Producer and Recording Engineer Bert van der Wolf tells us "Jaap van Zweden masters a unique craft to mold the orchestral sound to his own high standards and mental blueprint within just a few rehearsals. He lifts the general level immediately and is relentless in his quest for excellence. Furthermore his experience, with the instrument called symphonic orchestra and it’s fellow player, the concert hall acoustics, is exemplary and creates the most thrilling and magical unity in the musical performance at hand. Witnessing and recording this process is a true adventure and honor."

David Elias is offering his two 5.1 album downloads at a special 2 for 1 price if you order on April 1st or 2nd.

http://davidelias.com/#TheWindow

http://davidelias.com/#Crossing


Get Something for Something - 2 for 1 DSD albums


It's the start of the (zodiac) year and foolish rules, at the beginning at least. I am giving an additional free DSD album download to anyone buying one of these albums (stereo or multichannel) today or tomorrow:

The Window
Crossing
Acoustic Trio (stereo only)
DSD Coffeehouse Playlist #1 (stereo only)

When you complete the purchase through PayPal (be sure to click the "Continue" button after paying to go to the dowload page), I will contact you via the PayPal email address you use and ask you which additional DSD album you would like (choose from the 4 above or "Slipper DSD Sessions" EP).

I'll then email you a link to download the free DSD album you requested.

That's all there is to that. You can also choose the stereo or multichannel versions of "The Window" and "Crossing" if you have the other mix.

Feel free to pass this on to anyone you know who may be interested. I can honor the giveaway until 11:59pm HST Saturday April 2nd (that's by 3am Pacific Time on Sunday April 3rd).

Enjoy the Spring in the North and the Fall Down Under! Many thanks for listening.

Aloha!
DE
