24 bit Audio, the 'newer' kid...

I'm starting to see more and more re-releases of music that have been remastered at 24 bit.

CDs have had a bit depth of 16, with a sample rate of 44.1 kHz, which while being the standard for some time, is now secondary in quality to 24 bit audio.

What?

i prefer to record in 24bit 48khz.
but to be honest, 16bit 41khz makes really little difference to my ears.

I understand...it's only on higher end equipment that most of us would hear the difference, but it's there.

I just find the advancement of technology to never be less then incredible.

Bear in mind, that I have watched 5 evolutions of format in my lifetime, starting with vinyl.

And my home recording started by manipulating a VCR to I record at 6 ips as opposed to 2 1/2 ips cassete. If I made a mistake I had to start from the beginning of the most recent overdub. Today, we record a song in clips bring them together to assemble the melody and viola...

I love it.

oh, i can hear a difference. imo, the highs are a little crisper, and the reverbs are more defined. but imho, the real quality comes from the person re-doing the mastering. and i started recording on a tascam 4-track. i still like to use cassettes, actually. they got a sound that's just tits. good for warming up a brittle track. same with dat (although i havent owned a dat deck in ages).
