Hi, they have issued an SACD that is not OK. All layers seem to have a 100Hz low pass filter applied!!!

Meyer Moran result debunked - again
September 8, 2010
Hi, this is an interesting paper but the authors need to carry our further research before the results can be accepted as a scientific fact. There are some interesting results in the paper: Using orchestral music material, 13 participants out of 16 were statistically able to detect + native 88.4kHz and native 44.1kHz from each other However, ... more
