Hi All,

I wonder if you can help.
I have recently registered with HA but have been reading the forums for months.
Very interesting and informative.

Being a recovering so called 'audiophile (fool)' I think I have at last found some sense in the real world!
But thats a whole other story for a different thread!

I have a collection of some 2000 LPs that I want to archive to digital.
Now I release that the topics of 44/16 v 96/24 has been widely discussed but just to be clear and please
correct me if Im wrong on any of these points;

- Set the phono amp output to produce a max peak volume just below ADC clipping to maximise ADC coverage?

- 16 bits is more than enough, 24 bits does not produce a more detailed rip?

- Would 24 bits needed if I want to use declicking functions and rumble filters?

- If I always set the ADC input correctly normalisation should not be necessary?

- If tracks do need normalising to say -3db what does 24 bit over 16 bit prodivde?

- The noise floor is not lower with 24 v 16 bits, I dont think I understand the concept properly yet?

- 96K rather than 44K is worth doing for capture as it pushes any anti aliasing well out of the audio band.?

- There is no point in having a final cleaned corrected file greater than 44/16 as there is no audio benefit?

(BTW Im using a great software package called Vinyl Studio!)

Thanks for any comments,
Matthew

Why are hires audio downloads now becoming popular and often with glowing reviews when 44/16 already provides the correctly engineered and ultimate solution?

Somehow "ultimate" feels like too emphatic a word here; "adequate" seems enough particularly in reference to recording LPs. Let's not close the book just yet; I'm sure there were people who believed the Edison wax cylinder to be the ultimate solution.

...dishonest tactics via supplying a better master to the high-res files.

It doesn't even need to be "better" (whatever that may mean to you), just perceptually different:
"I paid more for it" -> "It's high-res" -> "It sounds different to me" (or "It looks different to me") -> "It must be better"
