High-Resolution Audio Explained (PCMAG, February 1, 2012)

[Neil Young] was referring specifically to the compressed MP3 and AAC files most people listen to today. Truth is, they just don't sound all that good. [] Even 256Kbps (and yes, 320Kbps) files are still audibly different than what you hear on a CD, although at least those are somewhat closer to the mark. [] Switch to an uncompressed FLAC file, and all of the above flaws go away. [] Stereo sound fields become three dimensional, with a sense of depth and space. It sounds as if a veil has been lifted; everything has more definition and natural sound.

I don't see any ABX tests to back their claims.

Perhaps not, but i'll gladly take the lossless files anyway, thank you very much.

Same here, but this "high res" crap is getting really old. If recordings are louder/less dynamic than ever who cares? Why does no one ever address this issue? :|
