High Resolution-Audio is the next evolution of digital music. Just as television technolgy leaps every few years with the addition of more pixels that deliver increasingly greater detail in the image, so too has digital audio evolved from its roots in the mid-1980s with the launch of the Compact Disc. Much has changed since those days, with many of us now collecting our music online as downloads, or enjoying live streams from Internet-based music services. Initially, sound quality gave up some ground to the convenience of cloud-based media and digital music libraries stored on our computers and smartphones. Now, with advances in computer memory and processing power, and today’s faster Internet speeds, music labels, audio equipment manufacturers and their supporting retailers can deliver in Hi-Res Audio the convenience of digital music with wide-bandwidth audio frequency range and improved dynamics that exceed even CD sound quality. It’s a difference that can be heard.
