ototoy.jp selling upsampled FLAC files?

    Hey there, I just bought a single, which was apparently "24bit/96kHz", from ototoy.jp and pondered when the file size was relatively small (65mb) for an audio file with high bit depth and sample rate of that duration. So I did small check on spek and the results(shown below) showed a cutoff as if it was upsampled. Has anyone that bought music from ototoy.jp before faced this kind of thing? I tried re-downloading in other formats like ALAC and WAV but they both showed the same thing.

    Even if it was genuine hi-res, it wouldn't make an audible difference as long as the same master was used. It's just an excuse for the music industry to charge higher prices.
