All our downloadable albums are available in high-resolution and compressed formats. This allows you to make a choice based on the quality you prefer and the speed of your internet connection.
FLAC/ALAC (high resolution)
These high resolution formats – also known as studio master downloads – are the highest resolution formats we have. In all cases they are higher resolution than CD-quality audio. While FLAC files have the widest compatibility, ALAC downloads are recommended for users of Apple iTunes.
This option is best if you value listening to the highest quality sound, and to hear the recordings as the producer intended.
This type of file has been compressed by reducing the detail of certain parts of sound that are deemed beyond the hearing ability of most people. It reproduces near-CD quality with a much smaller file size.
If the download speed of your internet connection is a concern then this file may be best for you.
This file type is compatible with almost all music-playing devices.
