New High Resolution Audio Brings Powerful High Quality Sound Back To Music!

Do you remember carrying around that 8-pound binder you had filled with all of those shiny little round things called CDs? The audio quality was fantastic on all the new music and even Steve Miller Band’s greatest hits sounded amazing remastered. And then came along this little device called the Ipod.  And we said, “You mean I can take all my Weezer, Nirvana, and Pink Floyd CDs and put them in my hip pocket? Count me in.

” All of that convenience and portability was great but…there was a catch; the compression of bit rate and bit depth. Without getting into a lot of technical jargon, what that means is all of that uncompressed data on a CD had to be smashed to a smaller size for transportation and storage on an Ipod or MP3 player. And the result? Lower sound quality. Most of us now accept the quality of our stored music as “normal”. Most millennials don’t even have any idea what else they can compare it to. The CD format to them is like an 8 track to my generation. And this generation has moved into the world of music streaming. Music is now stored in a cloud server and played on demand through the network on your computer or mobile device through various streaming services. But yet again all of streamed data requires compression…until now. Our recent advancements in computer processing, networking bandwidths and speed have made lossless audio accessible outside the realm of the CD format. The music and audio industry have gotten behind a new standardization called High-res or high resolution audio. With High-res audio we will have the ability to steam or download music in as good or better than CD quality audio. New high-res audio players will be able to play and stream the new format.
