Subject: RE: Tech: Are CDs becoming obsolete?
Though, keeping this in reasonable perspective;
I do agree Treewind, there are too many 'ifs' and variables clouding the debate on Hi Res music playback.
It's not helped by some 'alleged' dodgy seller practices of upsampling early 1980s and 90s digital master recordings
and passing them of as 24/96...

Also, when it comes to my own recordings,
taking into account the limitations of my own gear and environment,
I see no convincing practical reason to record higher than 24/48.
Stadardising at that rate seems to me a fair compromise to cover most options.
