This might of interest to people who followed the media hype the last 3 years surrounding the notion that kids prefer low-quality MP3 versus lossless CD sound reproduction based on an unpublished study by Jonathan Berger that never made scrutinized by the scientific community.

This past month I presented at paper at the 132nd AES Convention in Budapest that summarized some follow-up research where I tested 58 high school and college kids to determine their preference choices for CD-quality versus MP3 (128 kbps) music selections. as well as their loudspeaker preferences. I also ran 149 native speaking Japanese students through the same loudspeaker test to see if cross-cultural differences possibly influence sound quality preferences.

The findings and slide presentation can be found in my blog and S&V has written a nice commentary.
