RE: I have the Sibelius 2 in 24/96. (NT)

Yes, that's one where the data rate is shown.

However, sometimes the data rate is shown, sometimes not. Sometimes titles are ony available in lossy formats, sometimes not. Sometimes the lossy formats are MP3, AIFF (rate unspecified)and WMA, sometimes only MP3. Sometimes HD is 24/96, sometimes 24/88.2, sometimes unknown. A couple of recordimgs come in 16/44.1. Sometimes AIFF attracts a premium, sometimes not. Sometimes the premium is $1, sometimes 50 cents.

Do I get any idea from this that they have a policy or that they even have a clear idea of what they are doing? Not really. It all looks like amateur time. It also gives me the opinion that if I buy an unspecified "HD" recording then what I get will be, MP3 aside, pot luck. And for some unlucky folk that HD may turn out to be 88.2 and not playable with their digital processor, especially if it is a few years old ( I recall JA complaining in several reviews that he couldn't replay his own 88.2 recordings).
