If you stream music or buy lossy files, here’s your version of summer fun. Close enough, right?


If you own a ponoplayer or another modern 24bit digital audio player, you can experience this.

Full resolution for all the music you love will return you to the quality you deserve.


Note 1 – I bet your browser showed the compressed image first. That’s why data compression exists – to get the file to you faster. Once they are both loaded, was the wait worth it?

Note 2 – Image is not audio. Audio has more detail, more nuance, and packs far more emotional cues than visuals.
