    bouncing in 24 bit
    I have a car media player that is 24 bit,JVC,flac/wave etc . I tried bouncing a song using the 24 bit option and my player doesnt seem to play it. It plays the 16 bit stuff. Is this an apple thing??whats going on?

    24-bit WAV is the current standard bit-resolution for professional audio (and has been for some time), so I'd expect any modern, reasonably full-featured player should be able to handle that—it's not an "Apple thing". However, I suppose a really old player might conceivably handle only CD resolution (16-bit, 44.1k) or only some lossy file formats.. That said, there's not information in your post to venture a more specific guess.. - Other than 24-bit resolution, what file format did you bounce to? - What other file formats did you try bouncing to? * - What's the model of the player? - What does its spec sheet/manual say in regard to audio file format compatibility? - Did you try playing the bounced file on other gear to see if the problem is with the file or the player? * GB offers MP3, AAC, AIF, and WAV, with WAV being the standard for full-quality (uncompressed) audio

    They advertise this unit as 24 bit but that is misleading from what this spec sheet says. It can do SOME 24 bit I guess but not wave files at 24. Only 16 bit wav files.. per spec sheet

    Ah, so that's it then. An odd omission, but then you never know with consumer electronics, especially older models..
