Re: Recommendations for ripping 16-bit and 24-bit to flac

The bitrate of a CD quality 16bit/44.1kHz .wav is 1411.2 kbps

The bitrate of a 24bit/96kHz .wav is 4608 kbps

A 24/96 .wav will be 3.27 times the size of a 16/44.1 .wav

So if the 24/96 .aif files are uncompressed, they will be 3.27 times bigger than a .wav ripped from a red book audio CD with EAC. Even if the 24/96 .aif's are losslessly compressed, they would still be about 1.75 times bigger than a 16/44.1 .wav

Hope this helps! Don't worry, you will figure it out.
