    They offer four files of the same song, all reproduced in different file formats and bandwidth.

    I'm still evaluating but one can hear differences.

    And it's free to download.

    I downloaded the same file collection today. I have other files from Blue Coast. After listening, I've kept only the dsf format files. The dsf files IMO sound better than the other types.

    For anyone (like me) having trouble getting Foobar to work with dsd, dsf files you may want to give TuneBrowser a look. Just install and configure (very easy config) it. The free version has a 500 file limit. It's an easy way to hear how good dsd/dsf files can sound. You can get it from either the Microsoft store or the website. If you're running the latest version on Win10 (founders?) get it from Microsoft. I like it better than HySolid which requires using a phone as a controller.

    The full version is $19.
