Who knows man. Maybe it's better streamed or does sound better for new, digital recordings. Pretty much impossible for me to know. I just wrote that for "high-rez" versions of older analog masters digitized with 16-bit ADCs. I have seen "high-resolution" stuff for sale of late 80s and early 90s records that were recorded and mixed digitally on Betamax or DAT tapes though which is hilarious as the purest release would just be a direct dump of the 44.1khz, 16-bit PCM on the DAT like the Earache "Full Dynamic Range" series of reissues.
