The cash cow that is the Pink Floyd back catalogue strikes again! HDtracks have released these albums in HiRes, either 24/96 or 24/192. It would appear tyhat these are the remasters used for the most recent remastering for vinyl release. Should be interesting:

For those interested, it appears that with the exception of the albums not released previously in the Discovery Box Set, these are Hi-Res versions of the 2011 Discovery remasters: Pink Floyd in Hi-Res at HDtracks | Steve Hoffman Music Forums


But with slightly better DRs in many cases, apparently resulting in somewhat better sound quality.


In case anyone missed them, a number of PF albums (eg, Meddle, Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, The Division Bell, Pulse, The Endless River) have been released previously in Hi-Res PCM or DSD versions.
