My bad oztech, the sentence should have read the human ear cannot distinguish sampling above 44.4Khz. Its been a long afternoon at work.
I understand that the higher sample rates are used to preserve waveforms in the studio. As to whether the listner can actually distinguish in a blind test what the sample rate is, is audiophile territory and im not going there.
I'm just very annoyed of the massive missed opportunity for CE industry to adopt display port or some variant. I can predict a future with HDMI 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 .........and we all know how that went.
Time to look into getting some timeless mono-block amps for my theatre and just update the receiver for each new variant i guess (8k?). I'm over the upgradeites these CE company's love to force on us because there sales are falling.
