Read a nice summary today on Computer Audiophile about some of the issues folks are having with (so-called) high resolution downloads:
Many of us download our High-Resolution music from sites like “HDtracks” “High Definition Tape Transfers” (HDTT), and the Linn Records site. We make these purchases confident that we are getting, for our money, 24-bit/192 KHz, 24/176.4, 24/96 or 24-bit/88.2 KHz copies of master tapes either analog or, in the case of Linn, hi-res digital originals. But is that confidence misplaced?
Forewarned is four-armed (or maybe even six-armed), as I always say.
