Re: Cassette transfer in 24 bit? Is it needed or worth it?

Put it this way; if you dubbed them to digital in 16-bit, and the HiFi and Music industries eventually adopt 24-bit as THE standard, and at some time your master cassettes get damaged, won't you wish you'd done them in 24-bit?

If you're going to digitise them, do so at the best quality you can. If you do the low quality transfer first, you may not get the chance to do the high-quality one. Accidents happen, tapes shed their oxide, etc, etc.

Do them in 24-bit. You can always down-sample them to 16-bit for burning as redbook CDs at the moment.

Regards, Graham
