I've heard a few people say that it does and looked it up and most people agree that it does, but I've switched from 144p to 1080p and can't really notice a difference. I'm using semi-expensive speakers, too.

semi expensive speaks dont always mean quality speakers.plus if you are using good speakers but onboard sound then you wont know a difference

Not everyone can hear subtle differences in audio quality. Did you try it with music?
Insert generic offensive/slightly racist/holier than thou/fanboy/douchebag/elitist comment here.

I have onboard sound and I can easily hear the difference.

Yea, it was with music videos when I was testing. Forgot to say that.

Their 360p definitely has the sound quality degraded a bit. I've never noticed a difference with anything higher though.

There is definitely a difference between 720p and 480p.

it varies radically for each video

sometimes 480 to 1080 is little to no difference, and sometimes 480 to 720 is significant

post a video where you can't tell the difference between 144p and 1080p
