Dear friends,

this article explains some of the reasons why High Resolution files (or discs by the way) don't always sound better than the CD (or vinyl...).

Hostly? I cannot tell the difference... and I bet that in a blind test, most people also cannot. There is a paper out there where they show this, though it also states that with some training people can spot differences IIRC.

Hi Manfred,

I was able to listen to the higher resolution in these files:

http://www.playclassics.com/album4

http://www.playclassics.com/album6

The 16/44,1 version was downsampled from the 24/96 original.


I was really surprised about the outcome.
I had listened to the recordings a reasonably amount of times before in 24/96 and it didn't take too long to identify the shortcomings of the 16/44,1 version.

And once I nailed the characteristics of those shortcomings it was hard to miss them.
I can still enjoy 16/44,1 but I am convinced of it's lower fidelity.

Best,
Ricardo
