Re: Bob's Audio Reference Tracks

Bill: Do you have an Android phone by any chance?
There's a cool free app that you can use to control Winamp with your phone that is very similar to what James uses. It's not as good, but it's free and it also works with wifi and over the internet if you want.

Problem is that the Winamp people had it pulled because they want everyone to use their shitty app.

I've got a copy if you have the phone.

Let me know.

Thanks man, I see them now.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Re: Bob's Audio Reference Tracks

I also added a .rar file to the 1st post. It has all the files he listens to. DL it, and extract the files.
Most are FLAC files, and a couple are 320 MP3 files.

.rar = Roshal ARchive - commonly used on Linux based servers, also runs on Windows / MAC with correct versions of software.
Compresses and adds encryption if wanted / needed.
