Stereo FLAC 24/192 DR's are 7's, 8's, 9's, 10's, 11, 12's.
I absolutely love this cover, so cool, the old and the new.

Wow ubertrout, that’s especially high praise!
There's a real power to what Barbirolli gets, despite the slow tempi. Sound is fine, not an audiophile spectacular, but it's nice to get every last bit from the tape.

HDTracks offering Metallica's Black album in a variety of versions. Of course they try and be a little tricky.

Metallica (Remastered Expanded Edition) 24/192 Remastered album and live tracks, 39 total. $65.98. This is what I purchased, however after download what I got was 24/96. I wrote them to let them no of there error.
Metallica (Remastered Deluxe Boxset) 24/192 @ $327.48, 193 tracks. wow.
Metallica (Remastered) 12 tracks 24/96 $18.48.

My reasoning for my choice based on there advertising:
Box set, too expensive.
I thought well, I will get the Expanded Edition because it is 24/192 albeit expensive.
Remastered advertised as 24/96, so I just thought what the heck, I'll get the 24/192 and some hopefully killer live tracks.

I have not heard back from them yet but I have a sneaky suspicion they will tell me it is an error on there part and should have been 24/96.
Will they comp me? Or is it just a big mind game?

I just checked their website. The 24/96 version is listed for sale for $49.48 so it's pretty clear to me that they owe you access to the 24/192 download.

Regarding this HDTracks Metallica, kind of a shit show. They are nice people and I am sure they will work it out with me. In the description it says
Metallica (Remastered Expanded Edition)
METALLICA

Blackened Records

Rock


192kHz · 24bit

39 TRACKS · 205 MINUTES

* contains tracks in various sample rates

You have a combination of 24/44.1, mostly 24/96 and a few 24/192. I said to the rep, nobody reads the small print and you are selling 3 tracks of 24/192 for $15.00, kind of a rip off.
They say:
We are trying to confirm the pricing with the label as it does seem a bit unusual, but it is not unheard of. I will let you know if there are any updates on Monday.

That is where it has left off, yes I did not read the fine print, but I am sure they will some how make it right?

Woke up this morning, to the 20th Anniversary of 9/11. It is really too much for me, tears is all I have, better for me to listen to music. This Blues makes me feel better.
Orginally released in 1968 and re released as a FLAC download 2/21/2021.
Stereo, DR's are 9, 11's, 12's.
