Through the years I have collected my favourite tracks of audiophile quality music on some burned CD-R's I have called the Roysen's Reference series. They have gatherd quite some enthusiasm among the audiophiles I have played them to over the years, so I thought I should take the time to list its contents here. I hope you enjoy. Please don't hesitate to ask questions in case something is unclear or you want to know some additonal information about anything. My thought was to use some time in the coming weeks to include a picture of the cover of the disc every track is taken from and the specification of the that disc. If that is of interest of course. Maybe everyone knows pretty much everything on these discs already? I wouldn't know.
