“We’ve now got MP3 as the main format, which is another big mistake. The only real hi-fi is high-resolution audio, which you can find on the internet. There’s various companies offering high-resolution audio – and the stuff that’s available on Blu-ray and DVD. That’s all quality. But MP3 needs to go away very, very quickly.”
