    I don’t understand why we care about lossy codecs anymore. With the advanced of our tech servicing the internet providers where they are stuffing an incredible amount of data channels down a wire or fiber using DOCSIS, soon to be DOCSIS 4.0. Our phones and computers easily decode these signals with an error rate of 1*10-9 per sample. I’d say that’s pretty good and that is with the extra baggage of forward error code correction. Audio is so tiny compared to HD video why not use the tech the video streams use! Quam256 up and down is going to happen within 2 years for Spectrum. All that is required is for the streaming library companies to set up with the internet providers.
