Victor's plan to turn CDs into high resolution threatens the entire HD music industry

Interesting or rather worrying news out of Japan that Victor Entertainment, the music division of JVC has developed a way to convert CD-quality recordings so they can be sold as HD music.

Are hi-rez placebophiles really interested in today's mainstream music? My impression is that they predominantly aren't; rather, they are interested in music from previous generations, recorded to analog tape long before the hideous practice of reducing dynamic range that began in the early '90s.

Breath is found in waveform and spectral plots;
DR figures too, of course.

That's a small market. They might be trying to turn the mass market on to it. And by delivering a different mix, so it certainly sounds different.
The record industry has made many attempts to sell the same recordings over and over again, so why not try once more.
