Re: 16 Bit vs 24 Bit

When the technology allows it, you will hear the difference.

Sound in the digital world is made of samples (44.1 kHz (CD), 48 kHz (professional audio), or 96 kHz

and

Bit depth, which is the the number of bits of information recorded for each sample.

Therefore, the more information available in a recording makes it (in theory) sound better because it allows for greater frequencies and less noise.
