Dear All I have had quite a number of responses to my question yesterday about the limits of high-frequency hearing. Some of you have misunderstood my purpose for which I apologise. The purpose behind my question is to be sure that we are aware of any reasonable evidence in the literature, to which we can point, that allows us to be sure we engineered an audio channel - not for the average aging listener (that exists aleady) but so we can be clear that all listeners can, if they wish, receive all the sounds they can hear. The idea is to actually try to determine what is needed so it is beyond dispute without resorting to over-engineering or anecdotal targets (which for example would be my opinion about the 96kHz sampling used by Pioneer). I will post a consolidated digest of the response in a few days. Thank you all very much. Bob Stuart: Meridian Audio, Cambridge, England
