Reviewed – Top 5 High Quality Lossles HiRes Audio Music Players for Windows and Mac

If you need High Quality Lossles HiRes Audio output, then dont use Winamp, Windows Media Player, VLC, Foobar for music, instead use these. They offer higher quality listening experience.

In its simplest terms, hi-res audio tends to refer to music files that have a higher sampling frequency and/or bit depth than CD, which is specified at 16-bit/44.1kHz.

Sampling frequency (or sample rate) refers to the number of times samples of the signal are taken per second during the analogue-to-digital conversion process. The more bits there are, the more accurately the signal can be measured in the first instance, so going from 16-bit to 24-bit can deliver a noticeable leap in quality. Hi-res audio files usually use a sampling frequency of 96kHz or 192kHz at 24-bit, but you can also have 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz files too.

Hi-res audio does come with a downside, though: file size. A hi-res file can typically be tens of megabytes in size, and a few tracks can quickly eat up the storage on your device or be cumbersome to stream over your wi-fi or mobile network. These large file sizes have been why Bluetooth hasn’t yet been able to pass through hi-res audio without lossy compression yet.

Though Winyl has not been developed since 2019, we still feel it sounded the best (even in 2023). We dont know what makes it sound better, but it sure does.
