    Do you need a discount code or something? Looks like it's still $67.99 to me.
    EDIT: Never mind, just saw your edit.

    Nah, no code. Was all automatic. The sale will probably come back around later this year and they've got a bunch in-stock. Patience might pay off. FYI: They're very good about a weekly new release and restock email / newsletter, which also gives a heads up on their sales, so subscribe to that if you're interested.

    Not sure if you (or anyone else) is still in the market for this but it's on sale + additional 15% off for a total of 43.34 before shipping.

    Other stuff 15% off too, including Saul Williams (which I just grabbed).

    So, I guess Mank is available in both 24/96:

    and 24/192:

    I wonder how much of that is upsampled.

    I think 24/192 is a new high for them, and I have to imagine there's some upsampling there, because it seems like overkill to record that high.

    The Bowie box set a few years back with Low/Heroes/Lodger had a 24/192 option, which makes sense given the master tapes we transferred at that resolution for Tony to work on. It seems to make sense when transferring old analog master tapes, but I'm not sure anything above 24/96 makes sense when recording digitally now. I guess there has to be some reason they went that high.

    Well, I'm thinking that maybe it's because they (TRAR) didn't record anything at all. From earlier in this thread:

    So, perhaps 24/192 is what the recording engineers who worked to get all the performers to record their parts remotely worked at. Or what the mastering engineers worked at. Looking at the credits on this score, all that stuff was handled by people that TRAR do not usually work with.

    Good point, and likely the correct answer.

    So, I bought the 24/192 files, and did a spectrogram comparison. This reveals that it was, probably, recorded at 24/192 (and not upsampled), and that there is real audio information that is cut off on the 48-KHz files. But probably nothing that is actually perceptible. That said, if you're a completist, you might want to consider buying the 24/192 files, especially since they're relatively affordable on 7digital.

    Here is the spectrogram, with the 24/48 file from Bandcamp on the left and 24/192 from 7digital on the right. Sorry, the vertical axes are not at the same scale.
