Victor's plan to turn CDs into high resolution threatens the entire HD music industry

Interesting or rather worrying news out of Japan that Victor Entertainment, the music division of JVC has developed a way to convert CD-quality recordings so they can be sold as HD music.

Sorry mates, can't get the sense of those last posts. Are you telling that the average listener is not much interested in the (still to be proven) superior perceivable quality of hi-res formats (higher than 16/44.1, according to the subject) because he's got used to the poor lossy encoded music circulating in the wilderness? Right?

Sorry mates, can't get the sense of those last posts.

Those two posts are now long gone*. The aftermath from them can be found in this thread split to the off-topic forum:

(*) I was able to pull this from Google's cache, however:
QUOTE (extrabigmehdi)
QUOTE (zima)
Perhaps more telling, more illustrative of large scale habits & rejection of hi-res music concept, was the rise of p2p music sharing a decade+ ago

Problem with p2p , is that poorly encoded mp3 are circulating, and sometimes even re-encoded.
At least on the <redacted> network.

Moderation note: TOS #9 violation corrected, user has been suspended for two days. We take this seriously, folks.

QUOTE (zima)
Yes extrabigmehdi - but that's also the point, many people still don't mind such "poor"(?) quality (re)encoded files. Similar when listening music uploaded to YT.
