More double-DSD live stream concerts – and this time they’re open to all

Two prize-winners’ concerts from the Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition to be streamed live and on demand

Following successful experiments earlier this year with live double-DSD-quality streaming of concerts, two more events are to be streamed tonight and tomorrow on the Prime Seat platform – and this time they’ll also be available in standard PCM sample rates from 44.1kHz to 192kHz.

Prime Seat Chopin Piano Competition

The streams are of the prize-winners’ concerts from the Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition, with the winners accompanied by the Warsaw National Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Jacek Kaspszyk, and will come direct from Warsaw.

Two concerts will be streamed live this evening and tomorrow evening at 19.00 CEST (18.00 BST), and then the concerts will be available for ‘on-demand’ listening from Saturday October 24th.

The original broadcasts were only available to owners of a range of suitable DACs, including Korg’s DS-DAC-100, DS-DAC-100m and several Sony models: this time, using new Prime Seat software now available as a free download here, you can listen to them with a range of converters or amplifiers with digital inputs, using both PC and Mac computers.

I greatly enjoyed the original concerts, as I reported here, so am looking forward to hearing more concerts over the next few days.
