Adding to the list of hi-res music download sites is the Classical Music-focused site, Primephonic. As a way to advertise and promote the hi-res music download site, Primephonic is offering a special discount code that will snag you a free album, Primephonic Selected: Spring, which is a collection of orchestral pieces on the theme of spring. Vivaldi, Stravinsky, Beethoven, Mussorgsky are just some of the composers headlining this cool-looking offering.

As with many download sites, you can download files in DSD, FLAC, or WAV. ALAC does not appear to be a supported download format, but you can easily convert any FLAC files to ALAC forma quickly and easily with our how-to article here.

What’s very interesting about Primephonic is that they appear to offer a spectrogram of the album. I’m in contact with Primephonic on this topic and hope to have more information. Nevertheless, there is a unique spectrogram available for every single album. If this is indeed the spectrogram of the hi-res version of the album, it will allow users a unique way to see what they are actually getting. As we know, some hi-res music download sites sell only CD-quality files up sampled to hi-res. This is misleading because all the benefits of hi-res music are stripped out. You’re just getting a 16/44 file wrapped in a larger file container.
