The thing about recording above human hearing response which deteriorates
with age in all of us however critical we think our hearing is,
is that we need the higher frequencies as harmonics to give timbre or
character to what we hear.
The recorder may well capture frequencies above 20K but not flat' or within
the plus /minus 3dB or whatever the manufacturer try to sell it product on.
If those frequencies at either end of the spectrum were not there in howeve=
small amounts everything would sound unnatural compared with our
intellectual understanding of actuality.
As for playback and hearing everything, any system is only as good as its
weakest part!
