View Full Version : 24 or 16 bit flac - which do I download?

2006-07-07, 08:21 PM
I noticed that for the Tom Petty 6/29/06 and 6/30/06 shows there are both 16 bit and 24 bit flac torrents. Which should I download? Are there advantages to one over the other? Thanks for the lesson in advance.

If all you want to do is burn it to a CD to listen to in your car, then you probably just want the 16 bit version.

If you want to read about it, here's a nice link: http://www.tweakheadz.com/16_vs_24_bit_audio.htm

24 bit will sound better but cannot be burned onto to a cd-r
