Here you can download examples of different dither types available at proffesional industry. The samples are amplified so that the dither noise is easily audible. You can also check using a FFT view the different noise shaping profiles used.

SSRC or FB2K dithering is not available, but If I had space enough to host the files, I could upload equivalent test samples to compare, when I had some time.

According to the available pool results, the best dither without doubt seems to be MegaBitMax Ultra. I fully agree with this, even when SSRC strong ATH noiseshaping would be among the best ones. The famous Apogee UV dithering would not wink.gif

The plugin Ozone has a dithering stage that uses MegabitMax. Find it at http://izotope.com .

You can do your own samples to demonstrate dither, easily.

Take any music, convert it to 24 bit, and fade out a part of at least 30 seconds. Lower the volume of those files by 60 dB. Now create truncated 16-bit and dithered 16-bit versions. Then amplify the files by 60dB again. Listen. Detail in the dithered version, pure shite in the tuncated one.
