Re: .wav Audio only DVD?

The answer is, quite simply, that 44.1 has been earmarked as the "standard". I agree 100% that it would be better for traders to begin circulating 48KHz or higher bitrate files. If this is on DVD or in FLAC format is immaterial. Where I have an issue is that the poster is looking to upconvert and thus alter the audio.

I have an issue with altering the audio more times to fit more applications than is necessary. If there is indeed a way to make an audio DVD and rextract that audio for sharing in such a way that it matches the original checksum value, it's OK with me. If the files are circulated in higher bitrate or samplerate FLAC, then I would hold the same standard to it.

I don't want people altering the audio, then re-altering it back at a later time for trading. If you're going to change the audio on what you're given, it's best to keep it to yourself is all.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
