2L against the loudness war or DSD64 download

Mozart Violin concerto in D major 2L (Lindberg Lyd Ltd) is about to hammer another nail into the CD’s coffin. You can buy and download albums (not many at that time)  in DSD64, FLAC 24/96 and FLAC 24/96 multichannel formats  from their website. Or test taste the HiRez for free here.

The picture shows sono- and spectrogram of W.A.Mozart: Violin concerto in D major (KV 218) – Allegro
Marianne Thorsen / TrondheimSolistene / Øyvind Gimse (Stereo WAV 24bit/96kHz). And it sounds accordingly ;-)

What a difference from the crap like this recording!

WYSIWYG… It sounds just like the graph in SND.  Especially if upsampled without decreasing the volume – like badly scratched disk. And yes, loud. Can it be any worse?
