Tascam HD-P2 audio recorder

If you read this on Gizmodo:
Tascam’s upcoming HD-P2 records up to a whopping “high-definition” 192 kHz / 24-bit Broadcast WAVE and connects to your computer via FireWire
You'd probably be wondering if Broadcast WAVE is some kind of encoding that makes audio more whopping. It's not, it's an EBU standardized version of Microsoft's WAV format. It's not a codec that would effect sound quality. I'm not sure whether the Gizmodo writers know this and it's just a poorly constructed sentence, but either way it's sad we have to put up with this shit.
