As in every other technical discussion, ask 3 experts, get 4 opinions. However, this one sounds pretty reasonable to my non-EE mind.

I the case of High Rez audio, ask 100 experts, and everyone except those few with High Rez ax to grind agree. Look at the market of available music, a small fraction is available in High Rez, follow the market, not the self interested "experts".

Why would I want to follow a market where people listen to 128K mp3 on Beats headphones?
