Beatles in high res audio - again

The Apple shaped memory stick
In an article in Showbiz411, it is revealed that the Beatles catalogue will be made available for Neil Young's high end music player and library, Pono.

Paul McCartney himself is said to be supervising the transfer of the Beatles’ recordings so they can be added to the Pono catalogue which can then be purchased and downloaded into the $399 Pono player. Pono is offering a wide selection of music on its site at 192 khz.

Of course, the Beatles already released their catalogue in high resolution lossless audio on an Apple-shaped memory stick back in 2009, available here. It contains FLAC 44.1 Khz 24 bit and MP3 320 Kbps formats of the Beatles remastered catalogue, as well as the 13 mini-documentaries in MPEG4 video format.
