The Truth Behind High-Res Audio

Mark Waldrep, recording engineer and founder of AIX Records, talks about the truth behind high-res audio and how the concept has become very confusing in the marketplace, how it all starts with the original source material, how he records to capture as much as the human hearing system can discern, how modern commercial recordings are mastered to greatly reduce the dynamic range, how the music business is more about making money than producing high-fidelity recordings, his upcoming book that explains it all in great detail and the accompanying Blu-ray that lets people hear the difference between various formats and techniques, answers to chat-room questions, and more.
