Definition of Hi-Resolution Audio by Japan Audio Society (JAS)
What’s Hi-Res Audio?
Hi-Res Audio, short for high-resolution audio, is high-quality sound that far exceeds CD standards. With increased expressive power, the delicate details from the ultra-high to low frequencies which were not really available on CD can be reproduced, much closer to the original sound. You’ll experience the realistic sensation and the deep impression as if you were in a recording studio or a concert hall.
Pioneer’s Hi-Res Audio Technology History
The history of Pioneer’s high-resolution audio technology dates back 40 years when the ribbon tweeter was born, realizing up to 100 kHz of ultra-high-frequency sound that far exceeds the CD reproduction range (20 kHz). Since then, Pioneer has accumulated the know-how as the forerunner in high-resolution audio reproduction, while absorbing cutting-edge technology of the times. Pioneer will continue to lead the innovation in high-resolution audio.
