Thoughts on releasing something in 5.1 or high rez 24 bit

Mixing music for 5.1 is problematic because of the sheer amount of variation in calibration of peoples' home setups. I enjoy 5.1 for movies but for music I just find it distracting and gimmicky. Until we evolve another three ears I'm sticking with stereo.

As for 24bit files, there's no point. They sound identical to 16bit files, they're just bigger. Any 'audiophile' who tries to tell you different is bullshitting.
