Starting in June, Apple Music will offer the full catalog in a seamlessly compressed ALAC codec (Apple Lossless Audio Codec), which is fully compatible in standard 44.2kHz / 16-bit audio format with Music CD. For some albums, HD version of 48 kHz / 24 bit or 192 kHz / 24 bit will also be available, depending on the studio manager.
You will need an iPhone or iPad with at least iOS 14.6 and a cable connected to the headphones to listen. To listen to music at sample frequencies above 48 kHz, an external digital-to-analog converter must be connected to a headphone amplifier with the Lightning connector.
The same applies to race, at least macOS 11.4 is required. HomePod and HomePod mini speakers will be able to overcome the loss of compressed content later with the help of software updates.
The wireless headset cannot be restricted to high-fidelity listening in the Apple ecosystem, as it connects with the help of the AAC codec, which creates sounds with HD players. In the case of some Android phones and tablets and some headphones from other manufacturers, the situation is funny, because the AptX HD and LDAC codecs provide high-fidelity sound via a bluetooth-connected stylus.
Also among the novelties are streams in Dolby Atmos Headphones surround format. You will be able to listen to albums, which have created a special mix in the studio, with surround sound with any headphones.
It should be noted that with the change of many competitors, for example, with the Tidal service you will not only find lossless compression and HD audio, but also albums and songs in Dolby Atmos, or competing 360 Reality Audio from Sony. Unlike Apple Music, however, all of these are available and available at the subscription level (drama).
