listening to music, which saved with 16 bit/44.1KHz, at setting of 24/88.2 or 24/176.4 of DAC.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I am digitalizing my audio system. I have ripped all my CDs and saved in WAV format in my computer. I listen to the music saved at the setting of 16 bit/44.1 KHz of DAC. It works fine.


I have a question. If I listen to music at the setting of 24 bit/88.2 or 24/176.4 of DAC, is the quality of music better, worse or the same. Can this damage DAC?

But it won't make the music sound any better -- you're basically just adding a whole bunch of zeros to the digital information.


If you do want to go down this road, make sure that the signal coming out of your computer is at the same bit depth/sampling rate as what the DAC is set for.

with some files, generally sounds slightly better (upsampling).


Btw. you do not need to use wav. Pick flac or aplle lossless. THERE IS NO SONIC difference.

You save disk space plus you have tagging option ?
