    Bitrate stuff

    Hello! So I bought a Flac at qobuz.com and it came in 919kbps(checked the bitrate). So it says CD quality and I read usually that means higher than 1000kbps. Do you think it will make a difference? Or will it be the same as 1411kbos CD for example? Before you ask I am using the Audiotechnica M70x.
