Nobody needs 192kHz. Can you name 10 albums that you would actually want to listen to that are available in a format over 96/24?
As President of The Ugly Crack Guild, I would remind you that pretty isn't the only way to go... ;-)
 You won't get any argument out of me on that front, and it is something I have said many times in this thread. The HD600s sound good out of just about anything, but I do find that they sound particularly good with the Crack.I'm reminded of a discussion I had a while back with someone about the Denon D5000s.
