As I posted somewhere else, I've been refusing to go for the digital media releases until now. Reasons?
1. Hildur Gudnadottir is one of my fave contemporary icelandic artists (played/recorded with bands Pan Sonic & Múm)
2. The kind of music is unique and very icelandic (highly recommended if you like Sigur Rós, Jóhann Jóhannsson). Very minimalistic and ambient... neoclassic as is it.
3. Beeing a fan of 5.1 music, I'm hungry to listen new music in multichannel (I'm not into this pletora of reissues in SACD format of 60/70/80's music, even when I'm loyal to the format).
4. The release is an special edition (papercard cover hand made by Hildur herself).
Name: Leyfdu Ljosinu
Formats: CD, multichannel USB stick, CD+multichannel USB stick
Date of release: may 7t, 2012
About the format:
1. 2GB USB stick with aif multichannel files (I ignore the surround format: DTS, DD, PCM, etc.)
2. You can choose the surround version: 4.1 or 5.1.
3. Does not include the stereo mix.
Well, now here's my trouble: I own an Oppo BDP-95 and AIF is not supported (here's why I don't like digital media, nothing like a SACD or DVD-A to put on a tray and press play).
If someone know please give an advice: is there a converter so I can have WAV or FLAC format from this AIF files? which one? are they free? Any help will be appreciated.
I'm very happy with this release, just hope I can play it as soon as I have it in my hands.
