FindHDmusic.com aggregates new additions to high-resolution download stores and includes alerts about deals and discounts for various online outlets: HDtracks, Pono, Qobuz, AcousticSounds, HIRESAUDIO, Linn, eClassical, Native DSD, Pro Studio Masters, Hyperion, more. You can search by service, or genre, format, sample rate…the site is no-frills and easy to navigate.

The search capability can be very useful — for instance, did you know that the Pono Store added over 1000 titles last weekend?

There’s also a page indexing sites that give away sample downloads.

It appears that all links within the site are affiliate links, meaning FHDM gets a cut for sending you to various services.

I set up an RSS feed for new entries, and soon had difficulty keeping up with the updates — sometimes more than 350 new titles a day. My only quibble is that their RSS feed prioritizes title, not artist, so skimming is more difficult than it should be. There’s also a degree of duplication involved in scanning feeds as new titles are rolled out to various services over a period of time. I’d also love to see entries for Tidal, but that’s a CD-res streaming site, and FHDM seems to focus on high-res downloads only.

Other than those qualifiers, if you like keep up with high-resolution music, FindHDmusic is an easy place to kill an afternoon or evening.
