I just did also, but not sure how to use the files.

After downloading and unzipping to .wav, I can't burn them to CD. Burner says "inappropriate audio coding in file".

Am I missing something here?

Thanks, pinocchio..
I have an account with bluecoast, but did not know about the promotional deal.

I am downloading the DSD versions of these files which over DSL is agonizingly slow..

I use JRiver MC17 which can play DSD files directly, MC17 converts them to 24 bit 96 kHz PCM so that I can play them through my DAC. They sound quite good, a little more analog like than most of the high res PCM I have downloaded..

dgta, assuming you downloaded the 44.1kHz PCM files and they unzip to wave and not .dsf (dsd) files you still need to use the proper mode to burn these to an audio as opposed to data CD. If these are .dsf files you would get the error you describe. It sounds like you downloaded the dsd files. I'm not sure whether any of the open source players have codecs that support .dsf yet, but that might be worth looking into.

Thanks Kevin, no I downloaded the 96k version. Unzipped to .wav files. I assumed all cd burner software can handle it. Using InfraRecorder at the moment, apparently it doesn't like it.

I also can't get Windows Media Player to play the files. Something about a Tag1 codec necessary.

I suppose I can spend another 10 cents and buy the 44k version, just curious why I can't use the high res.

Download Foobar, unless the files are somehow corrupt you should be able to play them fine. The DSD files I have pulled down so far are quite good.

You can't burn 2496 to audio cds, you must first down convert them to 16 bit 44.1K wave files.

For DSD:

AudioGate - Audio Format Conversion Application - | KORG
unfortunately you have to have a mind numbing twitter account or own a Korg product.

Thanks guys. Foobar indeed plays it just fine. Excellent quality.

I do realize you can't burn 2496 to cd, I just assumed burner software does the conversion. Apparently not. Any recommendations for conversion software?
