What parameters do we have and do/will our children have to say this in the age of MP3, Skype, and general data-reduction? Does high-quality audio have a future? Will new high-resolution music-only formats ever be a commercial success? Is generally the sensitivity for intricacies and detail, for dynamics and resolution deteriorating? Do social developments have an impact on this situation? What is the effect of increasing environmental acoustic pollution? What are our criteria for “quality”?
These and other questions will be discussed by a panel of experts with an acute sensitivity for those changes and a fascinating insight into this development.
