Due to my busy time, I haven’t written much on this blog. But in next few weeks, some hot entries will come - as I have purchased some new toys. Wait and see…
Let’s fill the entry with some “light-weight” topic. I bought some CD during my business trip last week. Let’s enjoy some.
Standard CD, although considered as an obsolete formats for many years, but still become a most used audio format until now. We have seen DVD-Audio and SACD were the strongest candidates to terminte Red Book CD Audio. But still, CD Audio maintains its superiority as widely used audio format, until present time. Perhaps we can see the digital storage format like WAV or loseless stored in your giant HDD, someday will terminate the life of the CD Player. But before that time comes, we still enjoy the CD as the main audio source.
I knew JVC recording long time ago. It was XRCD (eXtended Resolution Compact Disc), continued with XRCD2 and XRCD24. About one or two years ago, they release K2 HD format, which claimed to provide better sound at standard Red Book CD Audio, without additional decoder. Could it be?
This is one recommended collection from FIM, contains various artist. All remastered with K2 HD technique.
