Hello John,

you can assume with near certainty that you will never find this situation in a computer system that is used for concious listening, as any heavy load on the CPU would cause distortions that are a multitude of those that would occur when decoding a losslessy encoded file.

Moreover, such a system would be very vulnerable to any outside RF interference issues.

So, what you describe is as good as impossible.

Moreover, if it were an issue, you could circument it very easily by first decoding the lossless file to WAV and then playing back that WAV. As it is byte for byte identical with the original, any perceived difference could be instantly proven to be originating from a psychological influence from within the listener itself, and not a real difference in quality between the different encoding solutions.

Greetings,
Peter
