interesting read for anyone interested:
24/192 Music Downloads are Very Silly Indeed
Tsk tsk, I thought people should have been smarter about the 192/24 nonsense.

This video is about additive synthesis, and how sounds can be constructed by pure sine waves. If you are a musician or sound engineer, this video is a must for you!
Should show this to the reviewer Steve Guttenberg.

Edit: Don't want no lawsuit

Yeah he's just another high-end audio salesman in his previous job, so you know what he does best.

the 24/192 article was very interesting. Guys what's your stance on this? Now when I read bout people raving bout 24/192 recordings on the dx100 forum on head-fi, I can't help but feel skeptical.

Technically speaking 96db sound level from 16bit isn't enough to cover the known dynamic range of the human ears which is something like 144db, but that's the level of pain. But you have to consider transient sounds(very short 1-2 millisecond peak outputs on certain types of music i.e. live concerts) and that's where 96db might not be enough to cover the range required. But that being said, I guess 24bit @ 88.2 or 96Khz is a future proof format for a long time(assuming our DAC tech and tranducer tech improves further). Oversampling/Over-engineering is better than "tight tolerances" for sure.

It's like cameras, we are unable to see beyond a certain megapixel, but high end cameras nowadays can do 50mpixel or more. It is absolutely necessary? No, but it's certainly nice to have. But anything beyond 3-5mpixel is really a hugh drain on diskspace(basing on current tech)

If I recall correctly, someone by the name of Gregorio(?) on the head-fi forums said that 24/48 and 24/192 is only beneficial in the recording stage of the music. During the playback stage, there's no point.

But don't quote me on this.

I thought that's the general viewpoint of the recording community...
