Default Can you tell vinyl rip from digital download? listening test

Can you hear a difference between the vinyl rip and the digital sample download file of the same recording?

In this case, you should post an ABX report as well.

Pity about the sound quality of the vocal in particular, I hear the differences clearly and voted Yes without ABX result, I can describe the differences if asked.

Without an ABX report, anything you say about audible differences in this test is just someone saying stuff on the internet. Iow meaningless.

Difference is very clear.
I think alaba4.wav is the downloaded file while alaba3.wav is from vinil.
Nice test, Pavel !

Files are not identical hence the difference.
MD5 for alaba3.wav 2092d5b11ddacd0f5262b3c51533c30a

MD5 for alaba4.wav d8b1feca77a2cdeff6e88e39bac312d8
