It would be better to know whether audiophiles can back up their own claims through blind testing, rather than people who don't necessarily care either way.

Personally, I can most certainly hear a difference in music with measurably lower dynamic range. I would happily put my claims to the test.

Doing blind tests I found it pretty hard to differentiate between 24-bit WAVs and 320kbps mp3s, but that could do down to the system and DAC as much as anything.
