New to the whole audiophile world and I'm sure this topic has been discussed previously, albeit, I cannot find where. I have a DualDisc that I am attempting to rip using DVD Audio Extractor. There are two audio tracks on the DVD. One is 82.2 kHz, 24-bit, 6 channel and the other is 82.2 kHz, 16-bit, 2 channel. I am ripping to WAV and am only concerned about stereo. Ideally I would like to have the higher bit rate (24-bit) from surround title. Therefore the question is, what information am I losing if I rip the 82.2 kHz, 24-bit, 6 channel title to 82.2 kHz, 24-bit, stereo?

That's an awfully vague question. If I said that what you are losing is four channels, would that satisfy you?

The question you should be asking is, between 24 bit 88.2 (not 82.2) kHz and 16 bit 88.2 kHz, what would I be losing? The answer to this question is, essentially nothing.

If you then asked what you would lose between 88.2 kHz and 44.1 kHz, the answer again would be, essentially nothing.
