To play HRx, the files on the DVD-R data disc must be uploaded to a computer music server, which then will play the music files through your audio system. (You cannot play them on CD, DVD, or SACD players!!!) Be sure to check compatibility with your software and equipment. Your computer must be able to read DVD-R. Your media player and sound card must be able to output 176.4 kHz, 24 bit audio files. These files require large amounts of disk storage space, up to 4.7 GB. To realize the fullest potential of these master recordings, using very high quality equipment with proper, low jitter re-clocking, feeding the best possible external DAC is recommended.

Best of Show award for “Greatest Technological Breakthrough: Reference
Recordings’ HRx ultra-high resolution (176.4/24) digital music format.”
(Alan Taffel: The Absolute Sound April/May 2008)
"Reference Recordings, a company at the forefront of technical advancements
for the past 30 years, has broken through the technical barriers to deliver to
listeners the exact high-resolution digital bitstreams created during the
recording sessions. The company's HRx format encodes as WAV files on a DVD the
master recording, which was sampled at 176.4kHz with 24-bit resolution. For the
first time, you can listen to the original high-resolution datastream of some
spectacular titles from the Reference Recordings catalog." - The Absolute
Sound, Robert Harley
