Hires Audio - Treasure Island

Introduction
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Lets dig up some treasures. It's time to run another little study.




post over at Audio Asylum was referring to quite an interesting article about "fake" HiRes-Audio. files.

Within this article it's been stated that several HiRes audio downloads are potentially fakes.

What is HiRes? What is a HiRes fake?

The problem. The term HiRes is neither being protected, nor it clearly defines what can be expected.

The only thing that's defined is "HiRes Audio = audio data with greater than 44.1kHz samplerate"

Then. Why did HD-Tracks accept to replace potential fakes???  (for those complaining!)
