Will you please post its “original”, not FLAC-compressed, file? Thanks in advance.

The FLAC sample posted itself, and “Wav”s obtained by conversion of the FLAC sample posted into “Wav 16/44,1” and “Wav 16/48” gave a spectrum bandwidth a little bit wider than 24 kHz (up to 25 kHz at some moments)
Berlin Drug from 4.6s-9s is pretty killer.
Thanks a lot, /mnt! I noticed that most of the Kraftwerk samples you uploaded in the past have a similar sound: isolated beats and high-frequency clicks or zaps (similar to the phasor sound on Star Trek). Most of the time you claim to hear pre-echo artifacts. Could you give a little more detail to us insensitive pre-echo listeners on where exactly in the spectrum (higher or lower frequecies) the artifacts occur and how they sound. Are these clicks or zaps where you can hear the artifacts?Thanks,Chris
I think that, for optimal testing of transient response of the encoders under test, we should revert to the old master. The added (or better, non-removed) noise might even be another useful encoder stress factor (since it's clearly audible, it "pulls the bits away from the actual signal," so to speak). /mnt, since you're the official Kraftwerk uploader what do you think?
