 What is HD Audio?

HD audio offers music fans the best quality audio file possible to enjoy. Standard MP3 files are generally heavily compressed and below CD quality. When you purchase an HD audio file, it is not only as good quality as a CD, but the studio level quality the band recorded it in. With a richer tonal range and wider sound stage, it offers the fan the best possible representation of how the music was intended to sound! 

The HD audio FLAC files are 24bit and at a sampling rate of 96kHz, compared with a standard CD audio format of 16bit and a sampling rate of 44.1kHz. 

Simplified, digital audio is recorded by taking snapshots or samples of an audio signal a number of times to reproduce it digitally. In digital audio, ‘bit’ describes the number of bits of information recorded for each sample, and as such refers to the accuracy (‘resolution’) of each sample. The resolution of a 16-bit system like CD or WAV audio has a resolution of 65,536, compared with a 24-bit system like the HD audio that has a resolution of 16,777,216. 

In addition, the sampling rate defines the number of these samples taken from the original audio source per second – the more samples you take, the more accurate the representation of the original audio source. As such the HD Audio’s sampling rate of 96kbps is double that of a CD or WAV file.

 

Will HD DVDs play on normal DVD players?

HD-DVD's will NOT play on a regular DVD player. You need an HD-DVD player to play them. Ignore the responses that say otherwise--I've given them the thumbs down. Even the stickers on the HD-DVD packages proclaim that they're only for HD-DVD players. And note that there are TWO high-definition disc formats: HD-DVD and Blu-Ray, which are incompatible with each other and are competing to become the dominant format. Neither HD-DVD nor Blu-Ray discs will play on regular DVD players, but HD-DVD and Blu-Ray players are backwards compatible and can play regular DVD's. 

Simply put, HD-DVD's (and Blu-Rays) require a different type of laser (a blue laser, hence the name) that can read more densely-packed data. DVD players don't have this laser. 

There are a few titles that are "flipper" discs--they're HD-DVD's on one side, and DVD's on the other, so one can play them on both machines with a flip of the disc. These titles are few and far in between, however--"The Lake House" and "Good Night and Good Luck" are among them.
