Technology for Audiophiles?

The Register: Olive conducts Symphony for classical music fans
Quite interesting concept. Let’s hope it doesn’t deceive and/or that other companies will offer similar products.
Was talking to a composer friend a couple of months ago about audio technology and sound quality. It can be a fascinating subject.
“Fidelity” or audio quality isn’t simply about “resolution” (as in sampling rate and bit depth). Fans of Western Art Music are probably more likely than other music listeners to be attracted to this type of technology but not all audiophiles are restricted to Western Art Music.
There might be a more general principle about taste, these days. Refinement in taste that doesn’t necessarily go with condescension. Actually, open-mindedness and refined taste can make a very powerful mix. In music, in food, in life.
