# Merits of 2496

*From*: James T <JT@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>*Date*: Sat, 16 Jun 2012 14:42:21 -0400

I've read through some archived r.a.p. threads where it was argued

that 16 bit/44.1k had an inaudible affect on music, at least as far as

the cited test went. I understand the merit in having more bits for

multitrack ops, where internal math can lose bits. But now I'm curious

about the widespread 'understanding' that 24-96 is better. Is there no

merit whatsoever in final mix?
