Depends on the material ...

"The result was that no one can tell mp3 apart from CD quality if the bit rate is sufficient (IIRC 256 already suffices, 320 most definitely)."

Depends so much of the source material that this kind of 'test' is basically worthless.

Take mainstream commercial music and already the source is shit: It's not getting any worse by compression, therefore no differences either.
