The latter can only be downloaded from in the original recording format (dxd) as well as in dsd 128 and dsd 256. Native dsd has only dsd 64 files available.
    Thanks for the clarification. Larry

    Some additional video info regarding the CC Prokofiev recordings:

    Here is a link with a review of Bert van der Wolf’s latest dxd recording with music of Korngold and Berstein:

    I ordered both this recording and Bert’s latest Prokofiev recording (in dxd as well as in dsd 256 format) but did not have the time yet to listen to these two files. Therefore will report my findings later on.

    As mentioned earlier on this thread I ordered the two last recordings on CC made by Bert van der Wolf in the dxd as well as in the dsd 256 format. Have only been able to give the (last) Prokofiev recording - of his second and fourth symphony - a serious listen. What else can I say then that this a beautiful (or should I use the word ‘stunning’) recording. Although not the most ‘easy’ symphony Prokofiev’s second symphony fascinates me due to its extremes while the fourth symphony is just plain gorgeous. Great achievement by all persons involved.

    Due to the various changes and progress in my Tidal LA / Kondo / Tripoint audio system I am currently revaluating (some of) my recordings / files from a sound quality perspective and in that regard I need to correct myself. The Debussy / Ravel recording from Bert van der Wolf in dsd 256 / dxd format - which recording came along earlier in this thread - is better than I originally thought: it belongs to the very best of Bert’s recordings. So gorgeous French orchestral music played as well as recorded gorgeously: get it and enjoy yourself!
