I have a 20-bit Telarc CD, and would like to extract it onto my computer. However, I'm not really sure how to go about this without having the WAV truncated to 16-bit. I only have a 16bit soundcard right now, so it's going to get chopped off anyway, but I just want the original, unaltered music in the file.

Any ideas?

I am assuming it is a SACD. This has been discussed many times here with (AFAIKT) no real conclusions made. Some people insist that 20-bits cannot be extracted without special hardware. ...


No matter if it's an HDCD or just a marketing trick/special kind of mastering (>20 bit in studio dithered down to 16bit with some special algorithm) - if you copy the CD with EAC you won't lose anything. If you play back the copy on a HDCD capable player (if it is a HDCD) it will be read as HDCD.

To extract > 16 bit audio from a HDCD the only way I know of that could work is using WMP9 on WinXP, a soundcard capable of 24bit digital output and another one (or the same) with 24bit digital input.

I've tried this some time ago with NTONYX Virtual Audio Cable 3.04, but WinXP didn't believe it was a 24bit soundcard. Maybe it will work with a newer version of VAC.

This doesn't sound like HDCD to me - probably just some extra-expensive mastering equipment has been used, but the CD is still 16bit.
