Yup.  Compared, side-by-side, to a good vinyl recording, a CD sucks.

But you've got a point.  Falling back to OSS gives horrible sound
quality from (lossless) rips of CDs, which are, as you say, 16 bit to
begin with.  So what's the big difference from Pulse, then?

Most people who graduate with CS degrees don't understand the significance
of Lisp.  Lisp is the most important idea in computer science.  --Alan Kay
