It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

I don't necessarily disagree

But I contend that we'd like Pristine's "activist" remasterings whether or not they're issued in 24/96. And perhaps 24/96 does give the engineers more "headroom" when they're in the process of remastering the historic recordings. Nevertheless, I still think that 24/96 is overkill when the extremes of dynamics and frequencies of the historic sources themselves lie comfortably within the confines of CD-quality sound. It's not a big deal of course, since most listeners today have the ability to play music in 24/96. And of course, I'd say the same thing if the reissues were done in DSD - it's just overkill. But perhaps it allows the companies to eke out a few more dollars on each of our purchases and thereby stay in business! ;-)
