Personally, I think you'd need to be a dog to hear the difference between 196kbps mp3 and flac, even with the best equipment.

And even if you can hear a difference, it's nigh impossible to pinpoint which is which, or which is better.

Of course, I wouldn't ever go so far as to say that you can't hear the difference at bitrates below 196kbps. At 48, you're committing a sin against sound.
