Just read about the UK launch of qobuz HiRes store. The cost of many HiRes albums is still very much cheaper when downloading from the States (although not all are available due to 'restrictions' imposed by the record companies). Eric Claptons latest is about £7.00 cheaper in HiRes, in fact it is cheaper than the Standard Res version in the UK. It seems that $1 = £1 applies here as much as in hardware. What on earth is the reason for ripping off UK consumers like this?
