Yeah, the technology behind H.265 is absolutely amazing. That it only requires half the bitrate when compared to H.264 (visually speaking) is a huge leap.

Personally I find transients very important in the mix, that is where the attack and clarity is in the sound, so it is a good idea to bring them up.
What the fans heard was not the tape hiss and poor quality record but the heart felt words and emotion he expressed. Certainly anyone would want to be able to capture every single subtle nuance of a performance that brilliant gear can do so well but the listener at the other end will be moved by the emotion not the the converters, pre amp or microphones used.
I don't think Altus or anyone else is suggesting that artists do not have the right to release their works in any way they see fit.Thanks for clearing that up, Chris. That was exactly my point.
The point is that are real costs that result from limiting people's access to your work via limited editions or by choosing to not make your work available digitally via legal channels.
The "buy now or lose your chance" strategy seems risky to me. It is certainly a way to move product quickly. But it can also be aggravating for fans. I had to get Segue's Pacifica on vinyl, for example, because there was no way to buy a digital copy (and I'm not a torrent type of guy) and the CD sold out quickly. Annoying. (No offense to vinyl fans.)
