  • Pure Vinyl’s High Quality File Sample Rate Converter (upsample from CD format to files, or also downsample high-resolution audio to 96, 88.2 or 44.1 kHz / 16, 24, or 32 bit files)

“When playing 16/44 sources, Pure Music sounds as good to me as the best CD transport anyone can dig up – as long as I’m using a high-quality jitter-immune D/A converter. But I can play my 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz and 192 kHz/24 bit masters and then Pure Music beats any CD source. I love being able to play a collection of my masters using the friendly Itunes interface, but with Pure Music bypassing any sound processing that iTunes performs. Throw in a calibrated, dithered volume control marked in decibels, and I’m in heaven. Mechanically, the Mac Mini is quieter than some CD players!”
