New link to Sound Liaison comparison tracks, Comparing 24/96 wav vs 24/96 flac vs 16/44.1 wav vs 320 mp3

These free downloads are interesting, can anybody hear the difference? And what do you think of this;

When you compare the files start with the lowest resolution: D (MP3 320 kbps) and move on up through example C and B ending with A.

Be careful: If you start with A, and move down through B and C ending with D, your mind will remember the ''Blueprint'' of the higher resolution file, making it difficult to hear the difference even when finally listening to the MP3 file. Don't be frustrated if you can't hear a difference at first. Hearing is as individual as taste but hearing is also something which can be acquired, like the taste of good wine.

So they do not recommend a blindfold comparison.
