Those blind tests have been debunked for flaws like choosing music that's been badly mastered. And bad mastering is one of the evils these HD proponents would like to do away with - which will benefit everybody, even when played back at 44.1kHz, 16-bit.

I'll ask again, what's wrong with archiving music with the highest possible quality? We're upping the quality with which we capture digital images and video all the time. Storage costs are dropping all the time. And HD audio doesn't even involve killing kittens. But, oh no, we have to get all grumpy and stick with our shellac 78s.
