If you consider them a bunch of different tests it may be considered blind. But if you are considering it all part of the same test, it isn't blind.
 To discern higher screen resolution in video, you have to sit closer to the screen. At some point, you have to sit so close to see full resolution that you can't see the whole screen at one time any more. The amount of resolution you can see depends on the size of the screen and how far back from it you sit. The larger the screen and the closer you sit, the more resolution is necessary. 4K is suitable for projection in a movie theater. With audio the determining factor on...
If you look at your results as you go, you aren't doing a blind test.   I don't think that there is a piece of recorded music with a dynamic range that gets close to needing 24 bit, so it really doesn't matter what music you use.
No problem... I have a Mac Mini media server with 50TB of attached storage. On the server is about two years' worth of music ripped to AAC 256 VBR. The library streams throughout the house 24/7 using an Airport network. My amp is a Yamaha 5.1 AV receiver. The system also is used as a theater with an HD projector and 120 inch screen.
I enjoy my speakers. I just use headphones when I can't use speakers (Oppo PM-1)
I'm not getting any corruption that matters.
If they play and I can't hear it, I don't care.
 If it wouldn't open and play.
I've never had a corrupted AAC file. But I have had corrupted AIFF and Quicktime movie files. Always good to have backups.
It talks about throwing out ultra high frequencies that are down at -70dB. It sounds like they are just going to extend some of the compression scemes of MP4/redbook to high bitrate/high sampling rate files.   It seems to me that no one who uses FLAC or high sampling rate files cares a bit about file sizes. They actually want the file size to be as large as possible to maintain the purity of every bit possible. The second they hear about throwing away inaudible...
