    this is not a direct question as a result of this post. I am new to this industry and have been reading your posts as a means to get “educated” as to what high resolution is and your thoughts on the subject. Thank you so much for the informative and enlightening posts!
    I am wondering if you will be attending this upcoming conference:

    thank you!

      Lauren, if you’re in the Los Angeles area and headed to the AES convention, then by all means stop by the panels on high-resolution. I’ve been approached by an organizer and hope to be involved…although I hardly think that focus of the entire convention will be on High Resolution Audio.
