Following on from the EV-4 test/comparison set released last year is this QS test/comparison set consisting of a DVD-A/V containing ‘Chimera’ decoded tracks and a CD that was created using the same file that was used to produce the decode. All of the tracks on this set were sourced from QS encoded CD’s.
The tracks used were not chosen as demo quality tracks but completely at random from a pile of disc’s i had close at hand at that time. Just by chance there is one track, the last one, that has any form of gimmick in its mix.
So, what’s the idea for this release? Well firstly it’s a demonstration of ‘Chimera’, and secondly it allows people to compare their decoding methods, be it hardware or software, with ‘Chimera’.
It would be nice to have some feedback here of either the decode or of any comparisons with other methods of QS decoding you may have made.
