Not when you have that audio being sent through 8 discrete channels

If you have a high end 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 the difference between 900kbps and 8MBPS is like night and day. By high end im talking $1,500+ for speakers/sub... and don't forget a high end HDMI receiver to go with it, which usually run about 500-800

(I personally find 7.1 to be overkill in 99% of rooms because I cannot tell the difference between 7.1 and 5.1 after calibration in small/medium sized rooms.. I run 5.1, but I biamp my front speakers so it technically is using 7.1 but uses my fronts as 4 speakers since they have 2 cones and 1 horn on each speaker.)

Yeah... altogether, I have ~ $6K in my entertainment setup

The difference is really noticeable.

With my consoles, tv, speakers, sub, receiver I have $11,500 into my HT setup (not including DVDs/Blu-rays). Sad thing is thats 3x what I bought my car for.

My setup is overkill (still paying the speakers off. ) but yea even people that arn't big freaks about audio or video come over to my house and can easily hear the difference between Dolby Digital/DTS and Uncompressed PCM or TrueHD.
