1000k and Beyond

Control the terminology, control the message.

I am listening to Sam Cooke right now. It’s stunning. Through $24 computer speakers. You think I’m kidding?  Try it yourself.

It’s a 3000k bitrate file. That’s sure helps.

It’s being played on the ponoplayer and it’s amazing analog circuitry, that helps a lot too.

Those two, combined, are what you need to achieve musical playback bliss.

  1. 1000k and up bitrate files (1000k is roughly CD quality up to 6000k studio masters)
  2. capable playback device (not a phone tablet or computer)

Apple’s iconic iPod ads had the uncontrollable movement part right, just the wrong device playing the wrong files.
