I am not a great believer in psycho acoustic engineering....

Personally, I cannot bear to listen to these facsimile audio formats!
I agree about mp3 but just because there is one very poor implementation of psycho acoustics does not invalidate the whole. Masking is very a well established phenomena. The point is that, at the tiny levels we are talking about, masking certainly takes place. and means you will not hear these artefacts in the presence of the material itself.
