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.

I'm just listening to a Youtube album at the moment and I do that quite often. It's a great way to discover new albums and bands (don't need CD quality for that). When I like a CD enough, I just go and buy it physical. Sometimes, buying the stuff I hear on YT is not even possible (live performance, limited release etc.).

When I was 18 we had FM radio instead of YT and compact cassette in place of file sharing. And the SQ spread (hem... pardon EU mates wink.gif) between those media and LPs was wider than nowadays equivalents, but just then the CD started to grow unstoppably because the perceivable SQ was vastly superior than that times best to anyone's ear.

As I see it, hi-res formats are not actually making the grade because they aren't the same quality leap as CD to analog. Simple and plain.
What I fear instead, as I told other times before, is that the music business will forcefully differentiate using ad hoc mastering or worse, gambling games like the one this thread is about!
