High Definition Audio - Can You Hear The Difference?
I hope nobody minds that I posted this in several Facebook audio groups. My goal is to collect enough responses to report the results with confidence. If anyone would like to share this further, I'll be most grateful. ?
I created a set of music files that lets people learn if they can hear the difference between "high definition" audio at 24 bits and 96 KHz, compared to standard CD quality at 16 bits and 44.1 KHz. The main feature of a self-test like this, where people download files, is they can listen as many times as they like in the comfort of their own environment through their own audio system. A self-test also avoids people complaining that someone else's audition system "isn't revealing enough to hear the difference" as an excuse for why they can't tell one file from the other. So please read this short article, download the files, and email me your choices. When I have enough data I'll report the results on my own Facebook page.
