Marketing and customer farming at is best. Always find it highly amusing when people flock like sheep onto the “high resolution audio” bandwagon. What high resolution audio does, very effectively is, use more storage…

Remember, Don, this survey covers only the CE Pro 100, which skews to the high end.
