I don’t think that article adds anything to the information already available. The summary seems to be that if the musician can’t hear the difference then it isn’t worth recording at a higher bit rate or sampling frequency. But as many musicians have really poor hearing but very few are prepared to admit it (Pete Townshend and Francis Rossi are a couple who have said they have hearing loss and/or tinnitus) then just because they can’t tell the difference doesn’t mean no one else can.
And Nyquist is only a theorem. Not a scientific proof. It could easily be wrong.
