I was checking the following website:

http://2xhd.com/

Selling extremely expensive real-2-real music tapes and HD mastered audio files with very detailed technology and photos.

You would expect them to make a difference between millihertz (10^-3), kilohertz (10^3) and megahertz (10^6)... but a lot of their booklets simply completely missed the mark.

DSD11.2kHz (correct is DSD11.2MHz)

DSD 256 kHz (correct is DSD256 = 256 x CD 44.1kHz = 11.2MHz)

The Jaco Pastorius was also wrong but it seems it's offline now.
The text was copied/pasted to Discogs here:

https://www.discogs.com/Jaco-Pastorius-Truth-Liberty-Soul-Live-In-NYC-The-Complete-1982-NPR-Jazz-Alive-Recordings/release/10492686

"... recording it in DSD11.2kHz..."

There must be other instances of that.

kHz -> kilohertz, correct
mHz -> millihertz, incorrect
MHz -> megahertz, correct

Contacted them to point out the mistakes but haven't heard back after one month.
