Your hearing: better than Fourier uncertainty principle?
An article discussing results of an experiement in time/freq and our perception of it, and why MP3 (and, by implication, digital to analogue conversion) has been on a hiding to nothing for years.

audiophiles with gold-coated connectors and 'unidirectional' coaxial
cable, but this data is something I could buy into." But these findings
can also point to why different people, especially audiophiles who spend
a lot of time and energy just listening, may respond to the same hi-fi
gear differently since some people are more in tune with frequency,
others more in tune with time/timing, and others still perceive both
better than most and different hi-fi gear excels more and less in
reproducing these same values. It also helps explain why for some people
MP3s are good enough while for others they aren't"
