    I bet it boils down to "If we charge them higher prices, we can make more money!"

    I think it's somewhat supply & demand as well as depending what you're looking for. Downloads are now more common than CDs & many downloads highlight "High Rez!" the value of which is debatable. I haven't tried it yet, but Quobuz seems to have a lot of "CD" quality downloads pretty cheap, and bandcamp can be reasonable too.

    don't forget

    usually 16/44 is standard CD price (though not discounted), and when > 16/44 is available it's always cheaper than the usual "Hi Res" outlets...

    The album I was looking at was 11.49 via Qobuz, 11.99 7digital and 17.99+ hi-res. But only 6.49 for CD via Amazon. It’s messed up

    Yes, it's an inversion but such things are common in market transitions, and in this case the long slow death of the physical media market.
