SACD and DVD-Audio provide us with high-resolution audio on home audio systems, which have a specific frequency character over 20kHz. In the meantime 96kHz sampling and 24 bits resolution recording has become the standard for the music industry, while 192kHz sampling or 1 bit recording are also used. However it is still not clear whether a human being can or cannot hear above 20kHz.
In this workshop issues will be discussed regarding how recording engineers evaluate high-resolution audio of over 20kHz and the different high-resolution recording systems in the actual music recording environment.
