I'd like to test some HDCD's? I heard that some mainstream CD's are coded in HDCD. Vaguely remember the Austin Powers soundtrack. Any more?


You know what I'm testing.

>What are you testing anyways. HDCD on computers?


Since Microsoft bought Pacific Macrosonics, they added HDCD capability to Media Player 8 which at the time being is a beta for WinXP. I got the beta player and installed it under WinMe and Win2000.


It seems to detect the above Austin Powers CD and add a little 'HDCD' logo to the player indicating it knows the media and is playing it back but I can't tell much difference on my system.

I have a Rotel CD player with HDCD and a few titles I have make the little red HDCD light come on:


Modest Mouse -- Lonesome Crowded West

Beck -- Mutations

Beck -- Midnight Vultures

XTC -- Wasp Star Apple Venus Volume 2


Best,
