In a way not directly related to the sys6k, I do feel that one. I know I've said this before, but this is why I'm recording at 16/44.1 more than I ever did before. The audible sacrifice of coming down from 24/88.2 or even 24/44.1 isn't worth it, and if no one else notices, then it actually doesn't matter what resolution we started at.

Maybe it's the quality of my converters (which I have great faith in, so....), maybe it's the dithering, or it could be the way I mix. On the final disc, if you can't tell and you don't have to think about it, it doesn't matter.
