I have recently purchased a soundcard that records in resolutions up to 24-bit 96KHZ, and I am using this to record high-quality analogue sources.
I have three questions:
1: When ‘burning’ an audio CD from a recording, is the write format fixed, ie 16-bit 4100KHZ, or is it possible to produce something of better quality? I will be replaying on a hifi CD player rather than a computer, but would be happy to buy something more appropriate.
2: If write format is fixed, is there much to be gained from recording at a higher resolution (forgetting the question of archiving for future use for now)?
2: The soundcard is a USB Soundblaster, and was around Â£50. Is this well-regarded as far as sound quality goes?
Any comments would be welcome
