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.

I'm not trying to be a smart-ass but the samples on that website are mp3 samples. Not flac. So whatever you perceived as better quality is not. If the source is not different from the cds. Which seem unlikely with the cover of the cd right next to it and the samples with "cd sample rate" as David pointed out.
Sample rate : 44100 Hz
Channels : 2
Bitrate : 158 kbps
Codec : MP3
Codec profile : MP3 VBR V4
Encoding : lossy
Tool : LAME3.98r
