I’ve converted the public domain audiobook of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (total run time 10:17:59 – original version found here) into the low bit Codec2 audio format at 2400 bps (more info on playing Codec 2 files (.c2) in Windows here).
What makes this audiobook different is that each chapter is presented by a different narrator, with a variety of accents and genders present. Voice quality varies too, hence the larger bitrate (2400) being used. Still some tracks suffer quite noticeably such as number 11, while others fair much better such as number 5.
The Codec 2 “Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” audiobook can be downloaded below (either in separate chapters or in a complete compressed folder). You can hear an mp3 sample of the Codec 2 Sherlock Holmes first chapter here.
