CEA Announces Expanded Support of High-Resolution Audio

HRA music files provide greater clarity and detail than MP3s and other compressed digital audio formats, resulting in a listening experience that more closely represents the original recording.

Gee, AIFF files provide greater clarity and detail than MP3s and other compressed digital audio formats. What about lossless compression?

Remarkable marketing and an utter waste of time and energy. Just use 44k/16bit. The 4 people out there who have a sound reproduction system that can usefully reproduce the dynamic range available (not necessarily used) on the CD probably get a visit from the police with a cease-and-desist order for sonic abuse of the neighborhood.

Hey Amazon, Apple! How about FLAC/ALAC files instead of your compressed stuff? Make that tune worth $1.29.
