What is High-Resolution Audio?
High-Resolution Audio is a collection of digital processes and formats. Music is encoded and played back using higher sampling rates than the standards used in CDs.
Record at a higher frequency than CD
High-Resolution Audio typically records at 24bit/96kHz, or even 24bit/192kHz – much higher than CD.
Hear a full range of sound
A wide 3Hz–40kHz frequency range complements the top-end range of High-Resolution Audio.
Balanced audio capable
With a balanced cable comprising four silver-coated copper wires, and independent ground wires for both channels (in blue and yellow), you’ll hear clear, precise sound.
