Those links were 2 things I had read\watched recently that I thought had some good information in there I didn't know. Thought it was worthwhile to share.
I wasn't being sarcastic, I was sincerely wondering what the gist of the articles was and I was hoping for a recap. My kid had Soccer so I didn't have time to read them thoroughly. It seemed to imply that a person really can't hear the difference and I've heard that before from other sources. Something along the lines of "full transparency happens at 192".
Personally I have no idea. I honestly don't have a dog in that fight. The only bit rate I've ever downloaded was the 256k at iTunes. I've never heard any of the others. To me the 256k sounds great. I'm just happy it sounds as good as it does, since it's so convenient. I do hear some garbage on some tracks, but I'm not so sure those aren't just glitches in the original source and have nothing to do with the bit rate.
