Re: Question(s) about 24 bit and 16 bit

question/help !!

Ive begun to create Audio DVD's with this program

Its great - I burned two 3disc shows & created a menu with the info.file on the DVD.
+ each show/track name shows original source

example of text on TV screen when playing:

Show: gd78-04-16.sbd.miller.xxxxx.sbeok.flac16
Track: gd78-04-16d1t11

Here Is The Question:

Check out Step 2.
Audio Format:
Select the audio encoding format: PCM (48 kHz/16 bit) has high quality which is similar to Audio CDs, the total playing time is up to 6 hours. PCM (96 kHz/24 bit) has the best quality, but total play time is only 2 hours
Yes I understand most everything I have is 44.1/16bit.

What I dont understand is:

Are there any cons to converting/recording the 44.1/16 wav files > 96/24 or 48/16 PCM

Seems to me it would be a bunch of extra 'headroom' not being utilized - but that is a swag. I played the disk on my best stereo system - sounded great (but that doesnt mean im not doing something 'wrong')
