Don't underestimate the human ear. I know that some audiophiles could
be considered pathological cases when it comes to quality, but some of them
really have the ears to notice small changes in audio quality. All you need is
good hearing, lots of training and quality equipment. Lossy codec is just that,
lossy - it can sound very close compared to original, but don't expect that
no one will be able to distinguish the difference...
