General Audio / Re: Fake 24-bit FLAC?

max (positive) value:
111111111111111100000000 =>  -0,0002650763 dBFS
111111111111111111111111 =>  -0,0000010354 dBFS
So yes, marginally louder.

min (negative) value:
16-bit source: 100000000000000000000000 => 0 dBFS
24-bit source: 100000000000000000000000 => 0 dBFS

     i.e. 0dB always comes-out as 0dB, even though 0dB is represented by a larger number in 24-bits.  
That is one I struggle to understand.
Playing 16 bit source on a 24 bit DAC: 111111111111111100000000
Playing 24 bit source on a 24 bit DAC: 111111111111111111111111

I have the feeling 24 is marginally louder. What am I missing?

I think that spek is not a good software to compare
It's good for comparing the spectrum.  ;)     It's not necessarily a good way to compare sounds or sound quality.

SO which file would be louder
You tell us...  

The format doesn't tell you anything about loudness.    The sample values in a 24-bit file are "bigger numbers" than the samples in a 16-bit file but when the file is played everything is scaled to match the bit-depth your particular DAC.     i.e. 0dB always comes-out as 0dB, even though 0dB is represented by a larger number in 24-bits.

I have 16-bit & 24 bit of FLAC audio file of a same song. However, I wants to  know which one should be/ is legit, CLEAR and LOUDER. Since the spectrogram is different in SPEK, I think that spek is not a good software to compare
FILE 1 is 24-bit: 192000Hz: 5586 kbps: 127MB

FILE 2 is 16-bit: 44100Hz: 987 kbps: 22.83MB
SO which file would be louder

HOW CAN I UPLOAD SPEC ANALYSIS HERE

installing msxml3 bio stop to lag and crashes but even with wsh57 and mdac28 it doesn't download images. Same for the thumbs script in samples.

The text data and clipboard work in samples and bio and i can copy and paste in bio and library view.

In the system console there's a lot of

Code: [Select]
err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object {6c736db1-bd94-11d0-8a23-00aa00b58e10} could be created for context 0x1

In the foobar console all normal.

this with a new foobar instalation with only SMP and biography. My normal foobar still freezes and crash.

Doesn't seem to be a long time solution.

But the old one is good enough, the script download text and imagess (that is his primordial use), the html configuration is not essential and with a future fix for clipboard this is great for me as is.

Few mouths ago i can't even download a biography text.

You people are real chads
