Having purchased a Thunderbolt ‘sound card’, the Zoom TAC-2, to make life easier when measuring loudspeakers it was too much of a temptation not to try recording some records.
This post is even simpler, linked below are four recordings of an excerpt from the same Nat King Cole track. The only change between recordings was the sampling rate. All are 24Bit Aiff files, one is 44.1, one. 88.2, one is 176.4 and the largest is 192kHz sampling.
The differences are not massive, don’t expect night and day differences. But there are differences and the better the system on which these are played, the easier they are to hear. The record is another charity shop purchase, so it’s not perfect but in some ways the clicks help to show the changes.
