About the Talk

Audience Level: All
Apple, Amazon, and Tidal all offer hi-res music, but what does that mean, and should you even care? In his talk at Macstock VII, Jeff will dive into what makes a song HD or hi-res, why that might matter to you, and what's just marketing hype. He'll also look at what you need to listen to hi-res audio files, the limitations you may encounter on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad, how HomePods fit into the mix, and what to expect from your AirPods and AirPods Max. Even better, you'll learn all of this without the discussion turning into a deep technical dive that makes your ears buzz and eyes water!

What you’ll learn:

  • What is hi-res music
  • Where to get hi-res music for streaming and purchase
  • How to get the most out of hi-res music with your Apple devices
  • What limitations you might encounter and how to work around them
  • How to find a music listening experience that makes you happy

Who should attend:

  • Everyone interested in exploring a better music listening experience
  • Everyone who wants to learn about hi-res audio without suffering through techno-babble
  • Everyone who wants to know what audio quality their Apple gear supports
