I think the 16 bit is enough camp has put forward plenty of justification or evidence, h about some from the 24bit is better camp? Can you provide evidence that the higher bit files sound better in their final form? And hats considered a good hifi? One with more than 96db of snr I take it?
Yes cause I got ears & I use them.. I dnt go by what people say, I find things out for myself.... & yes blind tested as well..

I see the feedback loop has kicked in...
But if tyranniux42 has finished chatting to him- or herself, can we back off on the name-calling, please?

you need to provide evidence of double deaf abxcdfx testing. Put a blindfold in each ear and have a blind person flip between recordings without you hearing anything. Then get them to hold a sign up with the download price of each version...
that fella is a tight EDITED, I would be surprised if he would borrow you a bucket of sand on a beach...
From behind a blind – you forgot 'from behind a blind'
oi! I'll take you outside and beat you 24 shades of 1 if your not careful!
16 would be quite enough tyrannosaurus Dix!
You only need 16.........apparently!
Edit. I must be part of your alter ego, in an echoey sort of way.

The jury is only out in streamers if you don’t have one. Streamers is the future just like the car once was. Don’t worry you will catch on one day.
Oh I get it, cars need endless roads (the good ones anyway), streamers need endless lengths of ethernet cable (the good ones anyway).
Bite me when the word 'convenience' crops up somewhere.
Streamers are not the future, they are the now. Every man and his dog are making them, before that streaming from computers.
Endless ethernet cables? Wake up and realise the convenience of wireless.
No, I won't wake up and realise the convenience of wireless because both Linn and Naim propogate the use of wired ethernet to get the best out of their devices. The former does not even allow wifi directly. And to my knowledge neither does the Marantz streamer.

Oh boy no need to get nasty. . Its just having a piont of view. Its call opinion. Put it this way ur fact & my fact are our own opinions.
The iTunes rip consistently sounds duller than EAC's to me, well to each their own.
Apple expectation bias at work manic old son.
Blind test it, then ABX it, have your hifi syringed and use some Deoxit on your ears. Then run a green pen round your entire mains wiring. And your neighbour's. Go back home, unlock your door using a pure gold key for your mortice and Yale locks (ensure this is virgin gold as anything but will introduce disruptions to your locally centred ether hence disrupting your audio pleasure), sit back, ideally on new cushions to ensure the minimum dispersions in sonic signatures carried round your couch by your speaker placement/room interaction. Then play something from 1911 on your gramophone. Then we can talk again...
RS, would you kindly take your drivel elsewhere? I've owned 4 iPods and am about to get my first iPhone (5 when it is officially launched here shortly). So much for my Apple bias. And you can take your ABX testing to your own 'locally centred ether'.
Au contraire, you obviously didn't get the joke, but I'm not going to bother explaining it to you.
As for streamers needing miles of cable, ummm, whatever....I don't bother with ABX testing either, but like I said, I'm not going to bother explaining it to you. CD is good by me.
Oh and your EAC / iTunes thing? That was drivel.
RS RS RS, I did get your joke, but it was so congested, convoluted and constipated that I fear your effort was a wasted one. The EAC/iTunes thing is not drivel cos rippers are not made equal. And my ears tell me otherwise anyway. Bye now.
Oh really, it is a fact that lossy compression truncates the quitest bits of music, so you're absolutely sure that in MP3s, AACs etc dynamic range or loudness is not affected, unintentionally or not?????
A good recording, is a good recording. If it is a good mastering in 16-bit, it'll come across the same in mp3.
I was talking about the merits (or lack thereof) of highly compressed audio like MP3s alone, regardless of recording.
welcome on board hms tyranniux. We were getting bored of the same conversations with eachother anyway...
