I read Bob's blog over on "Recode" and in his own words -
Recording resolutions could go even higher, but for any applications involving people, there’s no point.
So, this begs me to question what really sets Hi-Rez audio apart from a quality recording - any quality recording? Trying not to be a skeptic but this has kind of a 30 minute infomercial spiel to it, a Sony spiel. With that being said, I would be interested in the "new" format (if that's what it is) only if I could test drive it with the equipment I already own. Is that possible?
