Links: Warner copyright fraud, RightsCorp bleeding red ink, BBC audio woo.

 

 

Well, all that was a bit cheerless. So how about a rousing topical singalong.

  1. I’m unconvinced that the “BBC falls for blatant hi-res audio woo” in that article. It’s one of their sadly too common content-free fluff articles that doesn’t really commit itself to anything, and the only real facts are that MP3 is worse quality than CD (well, duh), and that the audiowoo (and non-audiowoo) peddlers are selling better quality than that. This is much like Duracell’s claims about many times performance, when the baseline turns out to be those forty-ferra-pahnd vinegar-and-cardboard ones from the market.

    What *would* be headline news is if the audiowoo was *worse* than MP3. I suspect that MQA’s 13-bit truncation might just manage it.
