  • I have to admit I have most of those albums in several formats already, and at $22 I’m not in a hurry to buy them again. I’d like to see more artists/labels go back and do partial or full-career boxsets in hi-res.
    Which sounds more attractive:
    A – The first 8 Prince albums at 24/192 for $120 on USB, along with a nice collectable box
    B – The first 8 Prince albums at 24/192 for $22 each

    I realize I’m asking for more to cost less. I think the value proposition has to be there for hi-res.

  • any of those first 8 albums in 192/24 should be perfect. time to get one of those new digital players!

  • Update —
    1 – the pono store is being re-worked and is closed temporarily. I’ll update links when they are available.
    2 – the estate of prince announced they will be opening paisley park as a tour and museum, much like graceland.

  • I’ve been rocking Art Official Age lately, very good album. I haven’t fully digested it yet to give it a overall ranking type thing, but it’s a great listen, lots of variety, great playing and singing as usual, and the sound quality is sick at 24bit.

  • Prince needs a 24bit box-set, like 5 albums at once for $50.
