RE: Is single sample of 44.1kHz sampled data audible?

Definitely. If it's the most significant bit you will hear a loud click if the music is quiet. If it's the low order bit and it's only a single sample it will probably be inaudible. I had no trouble hearing a single sample that was 35 dB below maximum when listening with the volume control set at a normal setting.
