To understand high-resolution lossless audio player software, we should first know what HD audio and lossless audio are:
High-resolution audio aka high-definition audio or HD audio, generally refers to audio signals with bandwidth and/or dynamic range greater than that of Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDs) – sampling rates greater than 44,100 Hz and with bit-depths greater than 16. These HD audio files are closer to the original sound with clearer effect.
From the earliest HDCD attempt in 1995 to Pure Audio Blu-ray, to High Fidelity Pure Audio in 2013, the HD audio keeps evolving to higher standard. And gradually developed many file formats capable of storing high-resolution audio including FLAC, ALAC, WAV, AIFF and DSD. FYI, HD audio files are generally made lossless.
Lossless Audio refers to the audio file that can be decompressed to an exact digital duplicate of the original audio stream, therefore far less compression would be conducted in comparison with lossy audio, which makes it way bigger than the regular files.
Lossless formats like Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC), Apple's Apple Lossless (ALAC), MPEG-4 ALS, Microsoft's Windows Media Audio 9 Lossless (WMA Lossless), Monkey's Audio, TTA, and WavPack are commonly used for storing.
Therefore, HD lossless audio player software should at least support the above all formats and can render the audio quality to the closest state to the original.
