The best place to listen to music is on a mega yacht at the marina in Monaco. 
Do we really need anything greater than 24/96? Opinions?
+1 for GeoffI was able to compare the same recording from HD tracks. One in 24/96 and the other 24/192 and I couldn't hear any difference at all.

Auraliti PK90 replacement

Synergestic Black Fuse vs Audio Magic BeesWax
