I've been exploring the high rez. audio arena and have downloaded some FLAC music files which sound great on my computer. I really want to hear them through my quite high end home system so have experimented with burning to CD, converting and playing with iPod, etc.
I am totally convinced that the best sound comes from music burned to audio DVD (not DVD-Audio, btw),and played from my standard home DVD player. Pretty incredible really, HOWEVER, no matter what I try via Toast (or any other software) I am getting some spectacular sounding discs but also a very slight distortion-- high end "rice krispies"sound if you will.
The other anomaly is that I can choose almost all of the Toast options for encoding and get successful burns, EXCEPT when I choose the very highest of the quality options - PCM, 96Khz, 24 bit - Toast builds the "graphics" first, and then starts encoding the first file and crashes every time.
Any thoughts out there?
Thanks in advance-- Scott
