Toast Crashing Trying To Burn 96K Audio Dvd



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

It's been awhile since I've seen a post about burning 96/24 music DVDs with Toast. I know there were problems and one or more of Toast 10's updates attempted to fix them. My sense is you'll need to settle for 48/24. I wish there was an audiophile who followed the Toast forums. Maybe someone who is experienced with 96/24 audio burning and playback will turn up to give you a better response.

Thanks, tsantee-- I guess I can settle, but the holy grail is still out there, ya know. Wonder why every other setting works fine but the 96/24. The other bugaboo is that I can download and install the 10.0.9 update but it won't let me register the update. Have a tech support ticket it for that one...


Thx. --Scott
