And having perfect pitch has nothing to do with it. Pefect pitch has to do with being able to identify the pitch of sounds or in being able to sing a particular note on command. The pitch is not changed by going from a wav to mp3. The note 'C' is still a 'C'. It has not changed in pitch.

What has changed is a reduction in all of the overtones produced with the notes being played which causes them not to sound as full or rich in tonal/sonic quality. Quality of your equipment and speakers will all play a role in what may be acceptable. The better your equipment is in accurately reproducing sound the more you will notice the difference with lower bit rates.

edit: very nice theme song there James, just made me a subscriber
