New Japan audio tech packs sound of trillions of CDs

This is kind of cool.

And they live in our beloved Yurakucho.

“New audio chips from Velvet Sound, a brand of Asahi Kasei Microdevices, combine to reproduce up to nearly 10 quadrillion times as much sound data as a typical CD.

This adds up to an “as if you were there” experience, the unit of Japanese materials group Asahi Kasei said.

To achieve this, Asahi Kasei Microdevices split its previous generation of technology into two. The new AK4499EX digital-to-analog converter will go on sale by this fall. Samples will be shipped this summer”.
