I'm not a sound engineer but 44.1 khz in stereo is supposedly cd audio quality (see the edit), dunno if there's some compression going on when the Saturn is streaming a file.

I would bet the difference between both those two examples and a well produced redbook track for the system is unnoticeable to most people, production and arrangement is more important at around 22khz and up.

Added a page for CD audio (and LD audio) and have covered most games from 1988-1994 (I also ended up adding some MCD, FMT, Amiga and PC-FX chiptune OSTs to other pages). Just 1994 3DO games and possibly some PC-98 games left to add and then it's back to sequenced PS1 music.

Finished documenting audio formats used in 1995 PS1 games:

I'm gonna double check 1995 Saturn games and then update the general 1995 page with Saturn redbook audio, and probably streaming audio as well. Then other platforms for that year.
