That is fantastic! If anyone would have these it'd be the guy who has enough iddems cred to put out an exclusive Aphex 10" only available in his brick-and-mortar location!

Boc Maxima wav files have been floating about for many years now, usually bundled as two files 'side A' & 'side B'. The tape hiss extends cleanly into the 22kHz range
I'm pretty sure my first set of Maxima was either WAV or FLAC, obtained privately circa the Napster era a couple months before it got leaked onto file sharing sites (back then, the only BoC releases you could get besides MHTRTC was a vinyl rip of Twoism or Hi Scores)
The thing I mainly remember about them was that it was broken down to something like 7 or 8 tracks, with 2 or 3 tracks segueing together per file. I wish I had kept them - it didn't really occur to me to perform spectral analysis on them back in 1999 or 2000 or whatever it was. They are long gone, just like my copy of "14 - Godever.mp3" which was floating around on Napster back then, which was actually Audiotrack 14A from R35TT, long before the rest of that tape leaked.
