Saw this on the Steve Hoffman forum, I figure to spread the word here.
Japan HMV list Blu-ray Audio titles ready for release in May 2013
Back in January 2013, Universal Music had the following to say....
High Fidelity Pure Audio is an exciting new physical product which uses Blu-ray technology to deliver an ultra-high quality listening experience to the consumer. Blu-ray discs offer increased bandwidth and capacity, meaning audio can be encoded without the compression required on CD releases. This allows for pure, uncompressed 24bit/96khz audio – so you can really hear music as it was meant to be heard!
Following on from the incredible feedback received on previous releases (including the Rolling Stones new Grrr! Greatest Hits compilation), more than 50 titles are now available. These releases include all the greats of classical music that Universal has to offer as well as a selection of contemporary material, including legendary titles from artists including Bob Marley, Queen and Stevie Wonder.
