RE: MP3 (320 kbps) VS flac/wav

one size fits all by frank zappa in 24/96 flac, if i burn it to cd its loses some detail and the difference between higher volume sections and lower volume sections become closer

You also hear through your bones. And as bone density differs from person to person ...   Cool

I've witnessed very noticeable differences between 320 and CD, in the CD's favour.

RE: MP3 (320 kbps) VS flac/wav

Well I just recommended the Sound Liaison recordings on another thread.(soundliaison.com)

On their site you can listen to the recordings for free in a resonable high Mp3 conversion.(my guess is 256)

If you like what you hear, you can buy one track or a whole album as a Hi-Rez Studio Master Wav download.

My point is; they sure believe one can hear a difference or they would not offer their product for free  in compressed form.

If you listen to the first track  ''I'm on Fire''from the Carmen Gomes Album  ''Thousand Shades of blue'',

you can listen to it here: http://www.soundliaison.com/products-from-our-studio-showcase-series/1-carmen-gomes-inc

there is this beutifull little intro where the drums are playing what  I believe are called rimshots,If you listen to that in the Studio Master Wav Download version,to (do that you have to download it first ),the decay of the sound is so much more rich than in the mp3 version.

I must say that listening to high resolution is a bit of a learning experience,the more you do it,the better you hear the difference.

But beware,it's like with good wine,once you like it, there is no turning back.

And of course you need good equipment,a pair of Sennheiser HD 800 headphones is a relatively cheap way of enjoying high quality audio.

I agree with you. I'll tell you more, nobody who claims they can hear the difference has been able to prove it  through blind testing. I don't think I can hear the difference between CD and AAC 256k either. Visit my site (http://cdvsmp3.wordpress.com) to try the online test I've devised.
