Silver Street Music is proud to announce that high quality audio files are now available to purchase and download from this site. We have undertaken a lot of research on the best formats to use and have settled on the following: 24-bit WAV files for best quality, which surpasses the detail and resolution offered by the CD; 16-bit WAV files for medium quality, which are exactly the same files as on the CD; and lower quality files in the form of MP3 files, which are still good to listen to and particularly useful for use on MP3 players & iPads etc. but don’t offer the dynamics and realism of the WAV files. All files will play with Windows Media Player and via iTunes. All audio files are at 44.1kHz sample rate.
ZIP - all downloadable files are standard zip files which contain the WAV or MP3 files. The CD tracks have been divided up into groups - a classical selection, an orchestral selection and a theatre organ favourites selection. We also have a bonus download of two tracks that did not appear on the CD.
