"one benefit of high-res audio was immediately apparent in the super-wide dynamic range, from extremely soft to exceedingly loud with no distortion I could hear in the few seconds I had my fingers out of my ears."
I will never understand the need to crank up the volume to 11 when doing an audio demonstration. If your listeners have their fingers jammed in their ears to protect their hearing, then the demonstration is a waste of time. I've had that same experience at a hi-end audio retailer who was demonstrating a pair of B&W Nautilus speakers powered by McIntosh electronics. All I came away with was that my fingers make great ear protectors.
