As far as I know blind tests have already been conducted between DSD and PCM and people couldn't hear a difference, despite the fact that DSD seems to be a broken format according to a paper published by Stanley Lipshitz and James Vanderkooy, which just shows us how forgiving our ears really are.
The faults are typically about 100dB below the music, so never audible. It was more an objection on principle.
Yes, exactly. I don't get positively excited when I see DSD printed somewhere, since I know any difference in format isn't audible. About that paper, though, the +20 kHz errors were many.

Also, the Fourier transform can be used to convert audio data to a frequency domain representation, which is a 2D array of frequency bins that vary in intensity over time, so in that sense audio could be considered 2D.
"Low - Equivalent to approximately 24 kbit/s (HE-AACv2 format). Normal – Equivalent to approximately 96kbit/s (Ogg Vorbis format). High – Equivalent to approximately 160kbit/s (Ogg Vorbis format). Very high – Equivalent to approximately 320kbit/s (Ogg Vorbis format). Automatic – Dependent on your network connection. "
24 kbps is too low in my opinion. But I imagine it's the way to go on 2G/3G networks. ~36-48 kbps will be considerably better. Parametric stereo is quite bad in headphones.
