Windows has sound format options or 16 or 24 bit sound, as well a hertz value. I've heard that the hertz value should be 48k for compatibility with applications, but searching here and elsewhere about the bit size hasn't given me any results.
I know almost all if not all of the sound I have been listening to is 16 bit. If I do have a 24 bit FLAC file though, it would sound better to not downscale it and have it set for 24 bit sound. My question is if setting it to 24 bit sound might impact the sound quality or my listening experience of the 16 bit sound. I can't tell a difference on either setting, but I'm only using Uprocks, and don't know if it might impact the sounds on the ATH-M50s I want to get or higher end headphones. Would having it set for 24 bit change the sound due to upscaling?
New to head-fi, thanks for answers
