Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

Personally I have a very hard time differentiating 16/44 from higher rez

I've done a number of 24/96 and 16/44 comparisons using my Wadia 861es as DAC with its internal transport for 16/44 and my Denon 2900 feeding the 24/96 data stream with a few of the Classic Records 24/96 DVD-V releases that I had in both formats. Too many variables to make a definitive statement but to me the sound was very difficult to differentiate.

Difference between 16/44 and 128/192 MP3 is readily apparent to me but 256/320 gets tougher. Quality of recording/mixing/mastering seems to be the most important factor.
