Windows shared mode bit depth vs actual audio file bit depth?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I know 24bit 48000 is what people reccommend to record at, but on my current setup I seem to notice a difference at 96000hz.

Now it is quite alarming, since most say that there is no difference between running windows shared mode at 96k or 48k aslong as its 24bit, it shouldn't effect what the human ear can hear.

Me and a friend did a blind test and I guessed  the 24bit-48k and the 24bit 96 correctly, is there a sound signature that is throwing me off or is this

all placebo?

And how does it relate to an actual audio file at 44100?

 

PS: Does a DAC have an optimal bitrate?

Good article, I'm still reading it. Thanks.



People are apparently wasting alot of time debating the subject. Especially since there is alot of other areas where audio can be improved.



I'm curious if setting my DAC at 44100hz, and just upsampling the rare 48000+ format is better or worse than, Downsampling from 48000 to 44100.



Just did alot of research and there should be a question raised on the subject"anything above 48000 is detrimental" as upsampling to 96khz or 192 is apparently cleaner than 444100 to 48000. Bit perfect is ideal, but it must depend on your sampler source. At times it feels less restrained although no extra information is gained, it can seem fuller at 96k. and it is audible, but not neccesarily in detail retrieval
