How High-Resolution Audio works

Listen like you’re in the recording studio

High-Resolution Audio works by converting analog sound to digital at a higher and more precise rate than CDs. High-Resolution Audio can sample sound at a rate greater than 24 bit/96 Hz, capturing more details and subtleties, resulting in music that is as real as it gets.
