Free DVD-A Album

In my last post I explained how you can play and rip a DVD-A with your computer. Some of you may not have a DVD-A, so I found one you can use to try this out.

Check out Diatonis - Dark Edges, an ambient style electronica album. The download link is for a DVD-A ISO image of their 24-bit 96 kHz 5.1 surround sound recording. Diatonis also sells DVD ISO images (both DVD-Video and DVD-Audio) through tradebit for only US$6.00 per album.

After you download the ISO, you can use foobar2000 with the dvd-audio plugin described in my last post to both play and rip the tracks. The method described below works on both physical discs and ISO images. If you have any questions, just post a comment below.



  1. Thanks for the pointer.

    I'm not a huge ambient music fan but was impressed with the recording quality of this album (24/96 5.0 surround DVD-Audio) and also the "dark ambient" style was different enough to be interesting.

    The ISO image file provided was also easily burned by the DVD burning software I already had on the PC (Sonic RecordNow).
