Music lovers seek to pump up digital audio quality
WASHINGTON (AFP) - When he sees people listening to music on portable digital devices, David Chesky cringes.
"You can have an US$8 million (S$10 million) Stradivarius, and it sounds like you bought it at a local hardware store," says Chesky.
A composer who also has his own record label, Chesky began a music download site in 2007 called HD Tracks, offering "high resolution" music which retains much of the fidelity lost in most digital music.
"We are making a quality product for someone who is passionate about music," Chesky told Agence France-Presse (AFP).
