I agree about that.

But dramatically different as you stated is plain wrong imo:

If you bandwith limit the two types of transducers to 20 kHz brickwall
then they´re almost alike in this regard.

So I agree with the ability of the SPU to spit out above 20 kHz

This may or may not mean a thing for the click detect process.
