This is seriously hard to swallow. Dr. Dre and audiophile go together like 20′ rims on a Porsche 911. Big wheels like big bass does not make things better. All his ‘Beats” based gear is blown out BOOM BOOM bass centered. I think it is an interesting combo of record label, artist, and technology company, but audiophile or even close to such a thing it is not. Besides, didn’t ogg files already prove there is better then MP3 technology for audio on computers, and how popular are those?
Interscope Records is enlisting the help of Dr. Dre as well as HP for an initiative that would boost the quality of audio on computers, the combination of a leak as well as some official information. While Interscope head Jimmy Iovine will only acknowledge that the label hopes to improve quality across the “entire chain” from the files themselves to listening devices, CNET hears from music industry contacts that HP will launch high-end notebooks, earphones and software with Dr. Dre’s “Beats” label sometime in the fall. Specifics of the arrangement weren’t included. ”
