Audio-stuff: Pono discussion

An article in German about Neil’s new media player, lossless digitalizing, close to what he had in mind with the late Apple-Steve-Jobs:

“Pono”: Neil Young will iTunes & Co. audiophile Konkurrenz machen
on Heise.de

In essence:

Pono = 24 Bit/96 kHz or even 24 Bit/192 kHz lossless coding.

“Unfortunately, there is no point to distributing music in 24-bit/192kHz format. Its playback fidelity is slightly inferior to 16/44.1 or 16/48, and it takes up 6 times the space.”

Well, maybe technicians hear other stuff than musicians…

It confuses me to hear people shouting at us that musicians should just shu…t up and entertain. Where the hell did that lame-ass idea come from? Music was, is and always will be about social condition and cause and change. Music speaks for the oppressed and downtrodden. Music launches revolution. Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams and Bob Dylan and Joan Baez and Johnny Cash and Joni Mitchell and Willie Nelson and John Lennon and Eddie Vedder and Neil Young and all the giants of the art know this. What the fuck kind of music and musicians are these boneheads actually listening to?
