16 bit can describe a range of 96 dB.
24 bit can describe 144 dB.

There's no more discussion needed, this is well understood. If you need more than 96dB range for playback, use 24 bit.

Actually, no. Otherwise DSD would only be able describe a range of 6 dB.
WIth 16 bits one can have effectively 120 Db of dynamic range for instance with dithering (which is a form of noise shaping).
