slayer199: Very interesting...long listen but still interesting.
bunner: Music is made of one notes, tones, slurs, arpeggios, hooks, lyrics, arrangements and a few gazillioon metric tons of other stuff.

The bit-length is a useful way to set an initial upper limit, because it's easy to work with mathematically (you don't need any combinatorics). There are a number of other estimates that he runs through.
bunner: Well, yeah, but we still bang out 44.1/16 crap when 96/24 could readily be worked into consumer gear. Who's getting paid to keep THAT crap going, I wonder.
t3knomanser: The reality: 44.1khz is good enough if you low-pass the inputs before encoding to avoid aliasing artifacts. Your average listener and stereo system isn't going to reproduce it with enough fidelity anyway.
bunner: See, I'm more about "use the best possible thing" as opposed to "good enough, because good enough is always arbitrary as opposed to limited by physics.
t3knomanser: A 96khz sample rate is not "the best possible thing", it's just a different tier of "good enough". It will have less aliasing than 44.1khz, but it will still contain aliasing.
