I noticed several albums on HDtracks at 24-192 but only 24-96 on Qobuz.
I then read that at least the Van Halen 24-96 are different mastering (loud like CD remasters) than the 24-192 versions (well mastered) and thus there is a clear preference for one vs. other.
Had the mastering been the same the difference would be the resolution which is less a concern for me.
I would like to buy some of the better sounding HiRez albums (ideally using Sublime discounts) but if the mastering is notably preferred on the 192 versions I will want the better mastering.
Are most hi-rez albums the same mastering between Qobuz 24-96 and HDtracks 24-192?
How can you tell?
