I always thought that in the Audio Midi Setup app, I should set it to 96k and 24 bit for the best output quality through my DAC/Amp.
Most all of my music are ripped CDs, in Apple Lossless format with some being AAC iTunes Plus tracks as well.
But, I recently read an article stating that since CDs are 44.1k and 16 bit, that is what my settings should be set at, to match. Otherwise, the computer/DAC will have to upsample the audio tracks and something could be lost in terms of quality in that process.
Is this true?
