I downloaded a 24 bit 96 kHz FLAC from archive.org and converted to Apple Lossless which left it 16 bit 96 kHz. It’s still a large file though. If converting to 320 Kbps MP3 do you think it’d convert better better at 48 kHz rather than 44 being exactly half the original sample rate? It’s only ripped from a crackly vinyl of Stockhausen so seems rather a waste of space as is. ;)

Yes, the "rule of thumb" is 96 kHz converts better to 48 kHz than 44.1 kHz, but that depents on the algorithm used. 96 kHz can be downsampled to 44.1 kHz with excellent quality using sinc interpolation, but you probably don't know how your mp3 converter does it so 48 kHz is the safe bet so yes, that's a good idea because it means only ~10 % bigger files.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Thanks, I’ve reconverted from 24/96 FLAC to 16/48 Apple Lossless and it’s now 25% of the size. :)

Played three times over the last three days. Always found it fascinatingly odd, but now really coming to admire it.

Now enjoying the latest remaster of this great album. Thicker, richer, more analog sound from Bernie Grundman this time around.
