New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

People compressing or advocating compressing classical music should be shot.

There is absolutely no reason why recordings of acoustic music should have any compression whatsoever. Any decent system should be able to deal with this The biggest problem isn't with the recordings, its with the culture of compressed music and multi-tasking. People should listen to orchestral music with 100 percent of their attention. I used to turn off my refrigerator so as to lower the room noise level.

Fifty years ago I used to wish that the idiot engineers and producers who occasionally compressed recordings would be murdered. Now I see that there are many "music lovers" who are in need of the same treatment.
