[XAP]Bob, I think you might be confusing the term “bit depth” with “sample rate” when you talk about how it relates to human hearing. True, 24-bit depth is 8 bits more data than a commercial CD and allows for more processing modifications in studio without degrading the audio quality of the file, but it is sample rate that is directly related to the spectrum of human hearing. A recording with a 44.1kHz sample rate will produce half that number (22kHz) as the highest frequency in that particular file, just as a recording using a Qu console will produce a file with a 48kHz sample rate and make the highest frequency produced 24kHz.
