Thread: RIP CD in WAV format using up sample rate option

    RIP CD in WAV format using up sample rate option

    Hi Spoon,

    I am using CD Ripper r17.1 to rip WAV format. If I choose the up sample rate option at 176.4kHz, the file size goes up 2 to 3 times. Should I use this option or use the regular CD 44.1kHz sample rate which up-sampling can be done by hardware(pre-amp, CAS...) ? I am just curious which approach gets a better sonic quality. Thanks.......William

    Upsampling and increasing the bit depth does not improve the sound quality. Audio CD's sample rate is 44.1 kHz and 16 bit/ch bit depth.

    There are legitimate reasons for changing the sample rate and bit depth, perhaps in production to match other sources for mixing.
