Pine Player ~ MacOS HQ Up Sampling Max 32bit 768kHz


Pine Player is an exclusive listening digital music player for music lovers who use the OSX operating system. It can play almost all existing digital audio forms such as MP3, FLAC, APE, AAC, M4A, WAV, AIFF, OGG, WMA, DSD, SACD ISO etc. and it also has a strong playing capability for listening to CUE files in the most convenient way.

1.     Maximum 32Bit 768kHz Up Sampling Function

Pine Player supports various kinds of PCM formats, so it can play sound sources from 16 to 32 bit; it can also reproduce clear and abundant sound quality by supporting a maximum of 768kHz.

Pine Player’s unique Over Sampling Filter is a technique that upconverts an ordinary MP3 file into a 32bit, maximum of 768kHz, and high sound quality sound source and sends it to the DAC for it to be played in best performance. Ordinary MP3 files’ sound quality can actually be heard more clearly and plentifully. Obviously, HD audio files such as MQS and DSD can be upconverted to a maximum of 768kHz as well.

2.     Convenient and Strong Playlist & Prevention of Text Cracking

Pine Player has a very convenient playlist because users can save and manage the music they wish to listen to, change the order of the music being played by simply dragging, and express any kind of language or text encoding perfectly because of its flawless decoding function. There is no Korean code cracking.

3.     Cross Fade and Gapless set-up

Cross Fade function, which is a technique that decreases the gap between songs when listening to files on the playlist or overlaps the songs for no gaps at all, can be set into seconds.

4.     Mass Storage of Audio Queue for Real Time Converting

Pine Player prevents damage of sound quality by having a high-powered Audio Queue for processing excessive amount of digital data. Therefore, it takes a considerable amount of memory compared to other music players.

5.     Automatic Isolation of Damaged Sound Sources

Pine Player has an automatic isolation function for damaged sound sources called Vault. If a damaged sound source is detected while playing the music, the music is stopped and taken to the Vault file for isolation. Through this convenient function, users can easily figure out which sound source is damaged and restore it.

Even with all these functions, Pine Player is a free app. Moreover, there are not any marketing or advertising material. Especially, no information including personal ones are sent to the outside or the Internet.

wtfplay ~ Linux High Quality Sound


Wtfplay project is an initiative to create a quality music player for Linux. Ultimately the project has just one objective – deliver the best sound quality possible – with no compromises.

Initially the player has been created: wtfplay. Soon the project evolved and wtfplay-live Linux distribution was born.

The main features of wtfplay-live are:

  • Memory based, bit perfect playback of WAV and FLAC files with PCM data (16 and 24 bit, up to 384kHz), and DSF files with DSD data.
  • Fully command line driven. No graphical mode. No network either. The whole system is optimised for sound playback from local disks.
  • A small text mode user interface: wtfcui – for more convenient usage.
  • Precisely tailored Linux kernel for best sound performance.
  • Distributed as Live CD: does not require installation on a hard disk, does not make any changes to your computer configuration.
  • Very small system size: the distribution ISO image is less than 50MB.
  • Good documentation – to give you all information that you need to comfortably listen to music.

The philosophy of wtfplay project is simple: provide the minimum set of features for easy use and focus 100% efforts on sound quality.
