Thank you for this link, this is a great lecture. I enjoyed it and watched it back and forth for a couple of times.\n\nI don't find anything I contest in this video clip. It is about what gets certified as high resolution audio in today's market, but I don't hear him say all hi-res is snake oil. Even he thinks there IS such a thing as hi-res, but there's less of it than one might hope and, as he says, "true to the source" is not hi-res, it is just true no matter how good or bad the source might have been. Also, the benefits are minute, but they are not nonexistent.\n\nFurthermore, I never thought I was listening hi-res, I don't even know how good I can hear. Maybe I'm below average?\n\nI see hi-res as a safety format. I don't want anything to get lost even if it can't be reproduced with today's technology. If we have the technology, let's do it the way he says; if it came out of an instrument it should be found in the recording. I'm fine with that. I'm completely fine with the fact that LP's are not hi-res, it just doesn't bother me.\n\nI'm not for surround music, though. That's simply virtual reality in my book (I stress "my book"), so I don't care if it's better, I don't want to be in the middle of a band or "standing" where the conductor is.\n\nPerhaps this deserves a topic of its own and I'll be happy to join in if you start it.
