With more labels on board and the archives being reconverted, I think this will set a new standard for codecs, conversions, and audio. I may not need my vinyl anymore.

Talks about audio quality concerning compression of audio files and the true sound of the music. Relates the information to a program that is available to provide an analog sound from standard compressed files.

compressing audio only files messes with the quality but in order to send audio iles it has to be in a small enough file.
