Above?

Most would struggle hear any difference between a lossy file and 16/44...
It really does depend on your equipment. With a very high quality DAC, you can tell the difference. One of the most astonishing examples I heard was when I played Fleetwood Mac Rumours at 96k. It literally sounded like a different album, as if a veil had been lifted and given the resolution, be close to the original master tape.

I have recently returned to CD listening - bought a (very) reasonably priced transport (Audiolab) which feeds a Linn dac/preamp. The sound is superb. Enough for me to dig out a few boxes of my favourite CDs and listen to them in their entirety (not as individual tracks as I tend to with streaming).
The sound is detailed, layered and has no sign of a digital ‘edge’ - it is very engaging. Mind, it’s helped greatly by my present system, which is by far the best that I’ve ever owned.
