Depends on the mastering/mixing engineer.atsmile.gif

A well mastered track converted to AAC sounds better than a badly mastered one at 24/96.

 

And to answer your previous question, a 24/96 track theoretically sounds better than the same track downsampled at 16/44, whether it's audible or not is another issue.
