Sony is introducing at the CES Show what may be the the first in-dash hi-res car audio deck that can produce music above 22kHZ.
A prototype single DIN hi-res audio pre-amp was revealed at the Sony CES press event Monday night. We understand the deck may be due this summer. It has a unique chip set that allows it to produce superior high frequency above 22kHz. Typical car audio decks produce music in the 60Hz to 22kHz range, even those that support FLAC files.
The Sony pre-amp can work with a special Sony amplifier and tweeter that are also designed to handle higher frequencies above 22kHz. The products will be on display at the Sony Car Audio suite at The Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas during CES week.
While the human ear cannot technically hear above 22kHz, we humans are still able to appreciate music with superior range because of musical nuances that filter into our hearing range to create richer sound. say industry experts.
Hi-res audio also restores the fullness of sound of analog recording that has been lost in compressed MP3 files as shown in the chart below.
