Big thanks to Dr. David Robinson at Positive Feedback for carefully creating the third volume of the Positive Feedback DSD Sampler that highlights Stereo DSD 512 tracks.
With Volume 3, we focus attention on the even higher resolution format of Stereo DSD 512…8x DSD! We are sure that this selection of DSD 512 tracks will give you a sense of the possibilities that ultra-resolution DSD offers to the discriminating and demanding music lover and audiophile.
Every effort has been made to be reasonably eclectic, but the significantly increased file size of DSD 512 tracks has limited the number of selections that Dr. Robinson could select for this new DSD 512 sampler.
Positive Feedback was the first audiophile journal to come out in support of DSD and SACD, in the fall of 1998, after visiting Mobile Fidelity’s demonstration of the new DSD technology in Sebastopol, California. (See the republication of David Robinson’s original article on DSD in Issue 1 of PF Online at https://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue1/MoFiDSD.htm)
The magazine’s support for DSD and SACD has never wavered since then and has been confirmed by developments in the audio arts and in the marketplace. Positive Feedback is a high-end audio journal that has been in publication since January of 1990. It was published with paper and ink for the first thirteen years of its existence, and then merged with Dave and Carol Clark’s magazine, Audio Musings in Southern California, and converted to fully online publication under the Positive Feedback brand by June of 2002.
With a subtitle of “A Creative Forum for the Audio Arts,” PF has been a very dynamic and wide-ranging magazine, with a large community of over 80 associated editors and writers, located online at https://www.positive-feedback.com. It currently verifies 370,000 – 400,000 readers worldwide per month and is generally recognized as a major and influential voice in the global audiophile community. It maintains a social networking presence on both Facebook and Twitter. There is no charge for visiting and reading PF, and all back issues are maintained in our online archives (https://positive-feedback.com/archive/) for easy public access.” — Dr. David Robinson, Editor In Chief, Positive Feedback
