Re: 24/96 Masters

As I understand it, the error rate (around 5%) of CD-quality (and all other PCM) audio is the same across the entire spectrum because most misrepresentations of the signal (except aliasing and jitter) are not frequency/time dependent, they're amplitude (bit depth) dependent. What you're talking about with the bass being easier to represent is more true of DSD audio, a 1-bit ultrafast encoding method, where the error rate is near zero at the low end and raises as you go up the audio band.
