Good sounding music starts with excellent quality DSD & DXD data

What we do

NativeDSD provides listeners a top quality resource for DSD Stereo, DSD Binaural (for headphone listeners) & DSD Multichannel music directly from Native DSD,  Native DXD, Native Very High Bit Rate PCM (24 bit, 384kHz) and Analog Master Tapes transferred to DSD in Stereo, Multichannel and Binaural.

Where it comes from

The music we offer comes directly from the musicians and recording artists recording in DSD, DXD, Very High Bit Rate PCM (24 bit, 384kHz) and Analog Tape to DSD Transfers. NativeDSD will never sell upsampled PCM at bit rates below DXD (24 bit, 352.8 kHz PCM) and Very High Bit Rate PCM (24 bit, 384kHz). That’s how we make sure that you get as close to the actual performance as possible.

How we present it

You can choose to download as Stereo (and when available in Multichannel and Binaural) DSD 256, DSD 128, DSD 64, and DXD and in a growing number in the popular Stereo DSD 512 bit rate.

NativeDSD also offers Stereo, Binaural and Multichannel FLAC files. These are created from the DSD and DXD editions of these albums using the unique “Zephiir” conversion process created by Bit Perfect which produces exceptionally high quality FLAC files.
