Re: for dogs only

The comment above about steep filters is on the mark, which is why at least 48kHz sampling rate is needed. Buyt frequency response is not the issue. It is the bit representation of the samples. 16 bits leaves complicates orchestral music sounding like a muddle, and puts graininess in the strings. 24 bits is totally adequate. That said, some CDs with bit--mastering which supposedly gives an effective 19 bits, sound quite good.
