AIX Records, an award-winning audiophile record label, will be presenting “High-Resolution Audio: Formats, Facts & Falsehoods” at CE Week in New York City, June 24-25, 2015. Mark Waldrep, blogger, audio engineer, record producer, and founder of AIX Records, will be holding demo sessions using real high-resolution, surround-audio recordings to help make sense of the confusion and conflicting definitions surrounding high-resolution audio. Attendees will learn about the evolution of audio quality and consumer delivery formats, including the latest developments in high-resolution streaming as imagined by Jay Z’s Tidal service, our hi-fi future with Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) tracks, hi-res download websites like PonoMusic, and surround music delivered in headphones.
