Which formats can my device play?
In the TRPTK Shop, every title is available as download in 7 different formats, from CD quality all the way to the original DXD Studio Master. But which format is the right one for your device?
Windows and Mac systems support FLAC 96 kHz in almost all cases. With software such as Vox or Roon, you’ll be able to play these without any issues.
Smartphones and tablets support FLAC 96 kHz in a lot of cases as well. However, oftentimes, you’ll need specific apps to play them. The built-in players of iOS and Android will usually support up to FLAC 44.1 kHz files.
(High-end) HiFi systems usually support higher resolutions, such as FLAC 192 kHz. In some cases DSD64 and DSD128 is also supported. Less often, there is also DXD and DSD256 support. When in doubt, refer to the user manual of your equipment, or send us a message at email@example.com.
How do I play downloads on my Mac or PC?
To play TRPTK titles on your Mac or PC doesn’t require a lot; only a piece of playback software, a pair of headphones or loudspeakers, and you’re good to go. Software-wise, there are many different packages.
Vox Music Player (Mac) is a free playback application that lets you enjoy music in high resolution. The interface is completely designed to make high-resolution audio as simple and fast as possible.
Foobar2000 (Windows) is another free playback application that is very advanced in nature, but also highly configurable. The interface is definitely less beautiful and simple than that of Vox, but the sound is still great.
Roon (Mac / Windows / Linux) is a beautiful piece of paid all-in-one streaming software that we at TRPTK know and love most. The interface can be controlled from a smartphone, tablet, Mac or PC and the sound is absolutely phenomenal. Roon enables you to search easily through your entire collection, by artist, composer, work and numerous other attributes. While playing music, you can read the booklets, checking out which engineer recorded or mastered the album.
What is the highest quality available?
At TRPTK, all of our titles are recorded in the DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition) standard. This format has a sample rate of 352.8 kHz and a bit depth of 24 bits. If you’re looking for the highest quality available, the DXD Studio Master is what you need. It’s a one-on-one copy of the original Studio Master without any intermediate steps.
Which payment methods are available?
At TRPTK, you can pay for your favorite music with many different payment methods, such as credit card, PayPal, iDeal, SOFORT Banking, Bancontact / Mister Cash, KBC / CBC Betaalknop and even with Bitcoin.
