It sounds like you compared two different recordings, that is, different songs, artists or actual recording sessions. If this is the case the test is of zero value, Tom.

It'd be difficult-enough to discern any differences using carefully-controlled, scientific A/B techniques, let alone when comparing two entirely-different recordings.

No, it's every 0.023ms, Tom, approximately 1/50th of a ms. Huge difference.

It is information of higher frequency than we can hear, mate; the "useless" stuff is filtered out before the sampling takes place.
