This piece gives some nice ammunition to those of us who believe that good sound is an important part of musical expression, and that regular ole people, even the mp3 generation (!) can discern differences in sound quality....and they might even prefer higher resolution.
Provides just a tiny hit of job security!
As I have said many times, I don't have much of a gripe about mp3....or cassette or whatever, so long as it is where it belongs: in the domain of the consumer. In fact mp3 represents a leap forward for people in many parts of the globe.
Where I DO have a problem with it is when it is confused with professional production tools. That is a non-starter in every way. It is tough soetimes to distinguish between a professional tool and a hobbyist toy when they both reside on the same platform; laptop, desktop or tablet. Indeed there is a world of difference however!
