Keep On Rockin' In The Free Publicity World

Het USP van de neilPod? De hoogst haalbare audiokwaliteit. Ex-hippie Young, voorvechter van alle 60's idealen, 100% anti-establishment, lekker dwars, godfather of punk etc. mag ongegeneerd reclame maken voor z'n digitale walkman bij David Letterman. En dat doet hij met alle vormen van genoegen in z'n leren jackie, lekker los T-shirtje en kekke strohoed:

Dinosaur sr. heeft de dramatische case van Philips' Video 2000 vs. VHS blijkbaar gemist? 'It's the content, stupid!'

"Articles last month revealed that musician Neil Young and Apple's Steve Jobs discussed offering digital music downloads of 'uncompromised studio quality'. Much of the press and user commentary was particularly enthusiastic about the prospect of uncompressed 24 bit 192kHz downloads. 24/192 featured prominently in my own conversations with Mr. Young's group several months ago.

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.

There are a few real problems with the audio quality and 'experience' of digitally distributed music today. 24/192 solves none of them. While everyone fixates on 24/192 as a magic bullet, we're not going to see any actual improvement."
