Oldfield watermarked at qobuz? 2016-02-07 13:11:58 I became very cautious buying any music related to Universal so i checked before buying.Lately i did buy a Frank Sinatra at qobuz that sounds not really good, like worn tape and i still believe it is the tremolo of the watermark Universal uses. Link: Sinatras "Strangers In The Night" Studio Master"I still have the Email where qobuz denied any watermarking on its files when i contacted their support"Unfortunately till today i had no chance to counter check with another release.Recenty Mr. Mike Oldfield did an overhaul of his 1984 Discovery.I did buy "To France" as 16/44.1 track at qobuz to check if it is any better sounding as my older CD version. I was not convinced and had some sparetime to play so i got me the "Studio Master" 24/96 of the same song.Downsampled with SoX this gives a pretty interesting delta file.If that isn't the Universal watermark in action what is?I remind on Matt Montags Universal's Audible WatermarkI uploaded a delta sample here: Upload ForumBesides that the 44.1 version must have been butchered thru a really weird resampling routine as you can see in the delta. The hefty pattern in the HF spectrum is not dither but a very early roll-off and aliasing in the qobuz 44.1 version against my SoX resample. Since i have only these 2 versions i am not to sure in what samplerate file the watermark is?I guess my reasoning is correct and please tell me if i am wrong.Still a bit baffled what to think of that all...Purchasing music should be straight and with best quality in mind. Making it a gamble on purpose is really annoying.
