In brief, High Definition Stereo (HDS) is a technology in software that opens up for a more exact and
natural sound than traditional stereo and surround. Sonic improvements are most often audible as a
general refinement. And while normal stereo tends to limit the soundstage in between the loudspeakers, HDS is stepping past this boundary, literally filling the room with a holographic and ambient soundstage, if allowed for by the quality of the recording.
HDS represents a major step forward in the modern listening experience. It is dedicated to all people in their everyday music, movie & media consummation, be it on small portable speakers or in advanced setups as the natural companion to the emerging Blue-ray & HDTV formats.
Being compliant and transparent to commonly used multimedia codecs, HDS will enhance the sound quality on almost any multichannel audio stream, and is suited for a wide variety of modern audio equipment, like:
- Laptop and desktop computers (OS X, Windows, Linux),
- mobile phones and mp3 players with stereo speakers or connected to a music docking station,
- widescreen TVs and sound bars.
And of course, the true potential of HDS can really be exposed when combined with top quality multichannel systems utilizing 192KHz sample rate and 24bit.
