I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

The long and the short of the article is that without a decent DAC, amp and pair of speakers you will not hear the benefits High Res and CD quality bring, the gap between compresed music and CD quality being greater than between CD quality and High Res. Therefore High Res is superferlous as far as the mass market is concerned and is just a marketing tool. I would add that it is also lost on peronal audio without a plug in DAC and decent head phones.

I have always scoffed at sound bars. I run the tv through the hifi some of the time, the benefits vary depending on what is on.

Action movie stunt bass has never appealed to me.

Somewhat of an obtuse retort.

I like what I like. I dislike what I dislike.

I don't like TV through my hifi, but a sound bar is needed these days because flat screen TVs don't have sufficient body for even voices

I don't crave anything more from TV

What I expect from vinyl and hi Res digital, is different.

Others will feel differently. My response was to your post that no one on a hifi forum would use a sound bar. I do.
