The difference of various digital audio formats

To see/hear the difference various digital audio formats we did the folowing experiment.
We took a song with high quality and dynamik from a vinyl, and formt in a 96 Khz 24 bit file.

One is changed in a 128 kbps
One is changed in a 192 kbps
One is changed in a 44.1Khz 16 bit PCM
The forth is the 96 Khz 24 bit original

All files are transformt back in a 96 Khz 24 bit.
So they all “look” equal.
Naturally a low rate mp3 does´t sound better, when you transform in
in a higher quality.

Technics SP-15 Plattenspieler
Klein 89/1 Vorverstärker
Waves BCL Digital-Wandler (Compressor, Maxxbass, Limiter aus)
Apple Macintosh Mac Pro Dual 1,3 Ghz
RME Hammerfall Multiface Audiokarte

Who´s who ?
Have fun with listening
