I'm not familier with PBTHAL
and I don't know what it means. But I prefer vinyl rips in preferably in 24 bit 192 Khz or 24 bit 96 Khz FLAC.
It's a shame that (official) The Beatles Box set at USB Flash drive (2009) only was available at 24 bit 44.1 Khz.
I have most of the Dr. Ebbetts and Purple Chicks releases in my collection. I will check it out...
