    Hi all
    No idea where to post this so..............
    Which should sound better, 96kHz and 16bit, or 48kHz and 24bit? My sound card will only use one or the other through my HK5500 and its difficult to do a sound test.
    Thanks John

    Its a creative usb soundblaster, when you enable audio monitoring, so you can hear external audio sources (my tv card). it changes it to 96kHz and 16 bit, it says its because of usb bandwidth, Or I can change it to 48kHz and 24bit,
    With audio monitoring turned off, (no sound from tv card) I can get 96kHZ and 24bit, which I can listen to my mp3s with through my amp,
