One more question if you all don't mind....

Do I need to concern myself with the audio resolutions if I just set it for 24 bit wav? As long as I'm not going ridiculously overboard by doing that I don't mind storing the extra bits.
It gives you nothing extra except a larger overall sized wav file. You are just going to have to down sample it back to 16 bit afterwards anyways. Using higher bit depths and sample rates than what the digital audio was originally recorded at will not improve sound quality in anyway since it is a direct digital to digital transfer. Think copying a cd to cdr. It is the same principle here. If the process is done correctly it should be a perfect bit for bit copy of the original.
