Hi.. I've only recently started enjoying FLAC recordings. I'm trying to find the Rachmaninoff Piano Concertos recorded by Vladimir Ashkenazy. I've found these short samples (miles ahead of my cherished CD in audio quality) but nowhere to follow up and purchase. Is anyone else familiar with these recordings and might be able to point me in the right direction? I know I'm a newcomer -- is this the appropriate forum to ask this question? If not, I apologize.

Hi... thanks for the replies. These seem to be links to CDs. I already have the CDs (have enjoyed for years) and was looking for the high quality FLAC (now that I can appreciate the improvement). If I've missed something in one of these links, please let me know. The one from France seems not to be available where I am in Canada (not sure why).

What makes you believe that the flacs are sourced from anything else than the cds? How have you tested that you hear a difference? Placebo?

New to this forum and not wanting to start a flame discussion, but I've listened to some FLACs sourced from tapes for which I have the actual CD. I do have good D/A, powered monitors and a treated listening environment, and I can assure you that to my ears and anyone else I drag into my listening room to listen to both versions of these particular materials, it's like the veil was lifted. Stunning. So I want more of my favorite stuff...

That said, if the source is the CD, then of course the FLAC is useless, so you bring up a good point.
