Are you able to tell the difference between DTS and DTS-HD MA/TrueHD?

I can't, but I have mid-range speakers.

@ezekiel43: I can but DTS is actually pretty good as it has a higher bitrate than Dolby Digital. So, it doesn't sound as compressed. Dolby Digital compared to the uncompressed formats is more noticeable of a difference.

I know. Dolby Digital is 640 kbps max. Not asking about that, though. 1536 kbps (compressed DTS) is already such a high bitrate.

I also can't tell the difference between MP3 and FLAC with my Sennheiser HD 6XX headphones.

I wanna save space, but I don't wanna get rid of something that does make a difference.

@ezekiel43: Which songs have you tested the MP3 vs FLAC versions of?

The first time I tested some decent headphones, I could tell there was a small difference between MP3 and FLAC. Probably a really shitty mp3 version of that song.
