A Redbook CD is 16-bit. So there is no such thing as a 24-bit CD. What it probably means is that it was an original analog recording that was re-mastered at 24-bit and then noise shaped to a 16-bit for the CD.


This is a lot like many DVD's use the "from a 1080 Master ".

It is an older analog recording transferred/digitized. I remember enjoying it.........................way back when.

Not likely since it is "down-rezed" to 16bit for the CD.



What we really need is a simple stereo audio format that is 192khz/24bit on discs that play like CDs.

most of these usually benefit from extra careful mastering etc so there may be some improvement

Yeah, but most still participate in the dreaded "loudness" war. An earlier 16bit mastering often sounds better because of this.
