So I was making a call to Russia earlier, and I found this rather interesting. Given that it's Russia, I'm a little unsurprised that something like this is out there, but it seems so out of place. The first call is simply a normal call (sorry for the low volume, I was experimenting with different routes to get rid of the comfort noise recorded on the second call), and the second one is what happens when you try and interact with it. The ticking in the background suggests it might be something of electromechanical nature.

Interesting topic. I'm not having any luck listening to the files though. Neither Windows Visa nor Ubuntu Linux give me any options besides saving them. I searched for "cdxa" and it seems to be some sort of video format, not audio?

You're kidding, right? I don't mean to sound brash, but really, it's a green book standard, I thought everybody would have support for it by now - even Sony of all people has been incorporating a similar format into their videogame consoles since the nineties.

For everyone else, what's your thoughts on it? Crossbar, maybe? Electronic switch with funny carrier?

i did not want to seem like a complete noob by not being able to open that format either, i googled around and it appeared to be a xvid codec or something like that, so when it did not open in WMP i tried with VLC and my DiVX player, and got nothing...

Um, yeah, didn't Sony invent this? Why would it be so shocking that they used it in their video games?

At any rate, cdxa is obsolete, and it's perfectly fine if you enjoy using it, but when you post something on a forum and want people to check it out, using an outdated fucking CD-ROM format is retarded. Sony's been using it since the 90's? I haven't touched a CD since the 90's.

For everyone else, what's your thoughts on it? Crossbar, maybe? Electronic switch with funny carrier?


And then ignoring those who rightfully ask how to play it is a real asshole move.

Edit: I forgot to mention that nearly all the players that claim to have cdxa support are lying, so don't waste your time.

That's true, the CD-ROM-XA standard is an outdated medium; it was devised as a kluge to work around hardware limitations to begin with. As those limitations don't exist now, it's fallen out of use, but CDXA audio, hence not being on a CD when I posted it, isn't limited to just a CD-ROM format; it's flexibility and superior encoding scheme is why it enjoys widespread usage.
Seriously, CDXA compression will make something only a quarter of the original file size, and decompression time is amazing. A proper decoder on a modern PC will decompress a whole minute of CDXA audio in less than three seconds. It sounds better too - compare this sample of an Aerosmith CDXA release with the atrocity that is an mp3 - http://thoughtphreak.../aero_cdxa.flac


Anyway, sorry if you feel that way about my format. I just found something I thought was amazing, and wanted people to enjoy it in the highest quality possible.

The first one I found on Google worked...

If you'll look closely at the header, you can see it's a Nortel DRAM file. The container format is somewhat similar to h.264, you might have luck playing it if you use Real Player Plus.
