One instance where i vastly prefer the 24/96 download is with dream theaters "a dramatic turn of events." dynamic mastering, much more pleasing to listen to.

I downloaded a couple of rush albums because i wanted to hear sean mcgee's mastering in a non-vinyl format.

Other than that, i havent done any hd downloads where the mastering is the same as the cd. I cant imagine a compressed-sounding metal album would benefit from any of this.
