Home Hi-Rez Highway

New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

works for me!

I thought I would not do it, but for whatever reason I took the plunge and can share first impressions about Qobuz hi rez classical catalog ...

It sounds great, a clear step up from their 44.1/16. No tech issues with hi rez internet streaming so far.

But the hi rez catalog is less than I expected. Seems to go by the label: e.g. DG and Harmonia Mundi titles are in hi rez; but BIS and Chandos are in 44.1/16 only. Commercial decisions by labels I would guess ... (Of course, cd quality Qobuz classical catalog is head and shoulders above Tidal, different leagues altogether.)

Enjoying immensly Kempff's Beethoven sonatas in 96/24 as I type this ...
