So I just did a nifty little experiment where I listened to 1.41 Mbps music through my TV speakers (fed via a HDMI cable) and then through headphones, and did the same with 320 Kbps. I couldn't tell the difference on any track I played. I tried multiple tracks from The Dillinger Escape Plan, including Lurch (Heavy Metal sound), When Acting As A Particle (Light percussion and violins), When Acting As A Wave (Heavy Techno and sharp low guitar work), and Mouth of Ghosts (Electronic effects and acoustic piano). So I ask, what do you use, why do you use it, and can you tell a difference between file formats?
