General Audio / Re: Fake 24-bit FLAC?
Last post by j7n -
The spectrum of 192 kHz file ends at around 20k. Above that you have very low intensity noise/distortion represented by dark colors. The file clearly has been upsampled from a CD-like source material and now takes up several times the space for no gain. To increase loudness, turn up the level of your amplifier. "High-resolution" masters are usually less loud because they aim for greater quality or at least reserve a decibel of headroom to contain new peaks created through the conversion process.

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?
