RE: Too many assumptions...


It doesn't surprise me that much that they're getting it to sound indistinguishable. They have a pretty clever compression algorithm that packs a high-res file into a very small one. On the other hand, does it matter? I mean, why do we need to save the space? For streaming over a phone, yes, perhaps -- for now. But for the home -- not me.

More important is what I was reading from numerous writers -- that, sonically, this is far beyond anything we've heard before. Is it? Compressing a file to much smaller and having it be sonically indistinguishable from its larger-sized counterpart doesn't seem like anything that I should be running out to buy.
