Roll up, roll up, get your Rolling Stones 24-bit 88.2kHz downloads here...

...what? Quality not good enough for you sir? Pay an extra $10 for the 24-bit 176.4kHZ version here...

...and hear those 1964 recordings in all their, er, glory. (Play the previews if you don't understand why this is so funny).

Cheers,
David.

P.S. No flames please. I think some of the music is great, and this may well be the best digital release of it - but 176.4kHz for this?!

Nearly 110 db down at 20kHz. Those images really tell the tale. Thanks!

Even still, ~70 dB down from peak says enough.

EDIT: I had originally said something about the music being incapable of having a peak at 0dB, but that doesn't excuse my mistake. My thinking was more along the question as to whether it's possible to capture the high frequency garbage along with the music (the complete spectrum) using only 16 bits.
