RE: Xiph Foundation Leader Calls High-Res Audio a Waste of Bandwidth

Well put.

The "perfect sound forever" group seems to have a blind spot when it comes to the actual engineering - and also the possibility that we may not have a full understanding of how hearing works (or at least the understanding we do have, is not reflected in the Redbook specifications!)

Ah well ... we will always be plagued by people who feel more comfortable putting their trust in math and a sheet of paper rather than their own senses - and will invent all manner of excuses when confronted with "but it doesn't sound as it should if it is really prefectly reproduced"

I truly believe based upon my own experience that digital is far better at reproducing the sound of a live event than vinyl - it is by no means anywhere near perfect!


============================
As audiophiles, we take what's obsolete, make it beautiful, and keep it forever.
