As far as I know they both only run up to 16 bits. So short answer, no.

I'm jumping on this offer though.

Great stuff! I particularly enjoyed Dave's True Story and the Mozart piece (which is just finishing up now). Before popping down the big bucks for high res downloads, I'm always curious as to whether the music is offered on vinyl. My preferred high res choice. If not, paying for the high res is a nice option (though I hate downloads, I'd rather pay for a DVD-R with the inserts and liner notes printed with quality). I like physical media, I'm a relic of the past I guess (and I'm only 32!). There is simply no feeling like spinning the big black disc, though spinning the little silver or gold disc is certainly more involving than pressing play on some gui front-end on my comp.
