Thread: 24 Bit Ripping possible

  1. #1

    Post 24 Bit Ripping possible

    I have version 17.7 of the ripper and use it to rip to FLAC for my computer. Is there a way to rip 24- bit CD to 24-bit FLAC for my UHD disks. Is this a feature available on the latest release, if so, I purchase...

    For now even my 24 bit CDs rip just fine but they all end up as 16-bit FLAC files and not 24-bit

    Thanks for any help or ideas, Bruno

    What does it exactly say on the UHD disc? there are only:

    Normal CDs - 16 bit
    HDCD 20 bit
    SACD - which has a normal CD layer.

    These CD's may have been mastered with 24- or even 32-bit originals, but no matter how you slice it your are down to the standard redbook of 16bit/44.1kHz by the time it is stamped to the CD. Either way, nothing can change how the CD eventually gets from digital to analogue, the only difference you may find when comparing different CD versions of the same materials would be from different mastering prior to the stamping.

    Here are a couple of references for you that may shine some light on the subject.
