There's an infinite number of good reasons to introduce substantiation - for rational human beings, anyway. Choosing to remain deluded and ignorant of fact- ultimately- leads to a much less satisfying existence in just about any vein of life- audio codecs much less than some, and more than others, to be sure.
I'm fairly well-read in the power (and lack thereof) of human perception and time and time again the majority of those imagining things as they aren't
find it to be a less-satisfying way to live as opposed to subscribing to things the was they are
- even if they need a bit of help sometimes.
See the hundreds of "recovering" speaker wire, interconnect, and painted CD addicts right here on AVS.
Less money and time spent on things they thought
(lol) were improving sound and more on what actually does
. Definitely something to be said for a product/change with a real distinction that can be identified over one that cannot.
