Just a note: it has been scientifically proven that sounds are not perceived only through ears...

Anyway, in our case, bit depth is *mutch* more important than frequency IMHO.

I don't think it matters—when you're sitting in front of the speakers, doing an ABX test, you can use any organ of your body you like to help make the determination (you might want to lock the door first though).

Well, in this perspective lossless is useless if you can't ABX lossy... blink.gif

No, ABX isn't the unique method to evaluate sound quality, IMHO.

BTW just think about low frequency effect on your floor (then to your feets): even if your ears hear certain frequencies, the listening experience wouldn't be the same if the floor would not vibrate. wink.gif

Do you remember the 10th of December 2009? It was the day you joined the wrong forum. wink.gif


Seriously, it's pretty trivial to ABX the feeling of the floor vibrating beneath your feet as you play a deep bass line.

The other commonly known "non ear" perception of sounds is via bone conduction (though I think it's your hears that do the final transduction). You can "hear" 50kHz if the transducer is coupled to you. Plenty of research into this. All rigorous stuff using double-blind testing.

Ultra High Frequency bone conduction is irrelevant for normal listening (unless you have your speakers a lot closer to your head than most people! wink.gif ).

Cheers,
David.
