You know those DVD rental kiosks that are in supermarkets and fast-food chains everywhere? In June, they will start renting Blu-Ray movies for the same price as regular DVDs ($1.49).
Two Blu-Ray music-only releases have been released recently:
Norway orchestral music: Formats include 2.0 LPCM, 5.1 LPCM, 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio, 5.1 Dolby True HD, 5.1 Dolby Digital at 48KHz. Via Engadget.
Nine Inch Nails Ghosts was released on regular CD, a variety of downloadable formats, and, for collectors, on a high quality Blu-Ray disc. From a review:
This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for: how does a CD @ 16/44.1 sound in comparison to the same content on a BD at 24/96? Will there be a difference? Is there a large improvement? Is high resolution PCM worth the hype without all of this DSD or MLP baloney in between? The short answer is yes.
