Just released! The PF DSD Sampler, Volume 1

09-02-2016 | By David W. Robinson | Issue 87

Great news!

Positive Feedback and NativeDSD (http://www.nativeDSD.com) announce the release of a joint music project, the PF DSD Sampler, Volume 1. This project was done to celebrate NativeDSD.com's amazing achievement of passing 1000 albums at its site in early September of 2016.

The PF DSD Sampler, Volume 1 is a collection of ten selections from the very large library of excellent recordings carried by NativeDSD.com, made by myself as Editor-in-Chief of Positive Feedback. Having long experience with DSD, NativeDSD approached me with the opportunity to put together a representative cross-section of music from their archives, a request that I was delighted to take advantage of. I was given the privilege of compiling the tracks from among my favorites, and of providing my impressions on each one for listeners.

It took quite a long time to do this! I ended up with over an hour of music, with selections from various labels and in an array of genres. Some tracks are Single DSD (64fs), some Double DSD (128fs), and some are Quad DSD (256fs). This will give purchasers the opportunities to hear various DSD sampling rates, as well as different types of music. It's also quite useful for those who are curious about the difference that higher-rate DSD makes in their own systems.

To review the tracks/purchase this DSD sampler, go to http://www.nativeDSD.com. You'll need to create an account there if you don't already have one. The process is simple, and there is no charge. If you already have an account, then log on. Then you can either click on the banner ad at the top of the home page, or go HERE. The price on the sampler is a very reasonable USD $9.25 (8.26 euros).

The even better news is that you, as a reader of Positive Feedback, can get the PF DSD Sampler, Volume 1 at a 50% discount! Just click on the price button, which puts the album into your cart, click on the cart icon, and then enter the discount code in the Coupon Code field:

But hurry! The 50% discount is good from September 2-October 31, 2016. After that, it turns into a pumpkin….

Note that this is "Volume 1." If this goes well, Positive Feedback and NativeDSD.com hope to collaborate on future DSD Samplers.

Many thanks to the good folks at NativeDSD.com…Jared Sacks, Jonas Sacks, and Floor van der Holst…for working so enthusiastically and diligently with me on this project!

A special offer from the artist…

The cover art for the PF DSD Sampler, Volume 1 is one of my fine art photographs from my portfolios. Entitled Elementals No. 1, Joshua Tree, CA, 2010, it is a key image in my work.


If you would be interested in a 7" x 10.5" very high-resolution photographic print (the above web-resolution image is only 150ppi; the print is gallery resolution), personally made by me, mounted and overmatted on four ply museum-grade art board to gallery standards, and signed by me, I will be doing a special edition of no more than 25 to celebrate the release of this album.

The special price for these prints will be $295 each, plus shipping and insurance. VISA, MC, AMEX, and PayPal are all payment options. Delivery time will be 4-6 weeks.

A 12" x 18" (approximately) version is available at a higher price; contact me for details if interested.
