Yes. My Sony 5100 Blu-Ray player does not like the FLAC so I listened to the MP3 and both WAVs. I could not discern the MP3 from the lower-resolution WAV but in both cuts, the 24/96 WAV was distinctly different from the others. More airy and almost lower-volume; clearer maybe? I need to listen more closely and without room correction on (I really only did a quick listen). Not what I was expecting, for sure.

I feel that the wav and flac 96/24 files are wider,deeper, clearer and with a more clearly defined sound stage.
After repeated shuffling( Blindfold) of the files it becomes less obvious. And I can not tell for sure what is what.
I believe that the blueprint theory of the Sound Liaison people has a point.
But incredible well recorded music it is.

CD is good enough IMO. The most important aspect is mastering though. Garbage in = garbage out.

If the files are properly made, and I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, then the freeware FOOBAR2000 ABX comparator can help people address all such problems.
