I'm not saying that you need a $10k system to enjoy lossless audio, but at the same time lossy will sound better on that system than lossless on a $700.00 Onkyo 606 Polk Rm6750 setup. Lots of factors in sound. All things being equal - lossless does sound better (on decent systems - I can't tell on HTIB type systems).
Agreed and if you have a good system the new audio sings and puts DVD to shame.

My modest system: Speakers: Three 802D, two 802, two 803, JL Audio Sub Fathom F113, Amplification: Classé CA-5200, CA-2100, Pre/Pro: Integra Research RDC 7( waiting for Classé SSP-800), Kimber Kable
