Not to hi-jack this thread but my question is related (sort of)
Before updating to SL my macbook's 'built-in' audio hardware could only reach resolution as high as 16bit.(44.1). (audio in and out)
After the SL update the Audio/MIDI app says that the built-in audio hardware is now capable of 24bit (44.1) (audio in and out)
How is this possible? How can software give hardware a resolution boost.
Wouldn't I have to change a physical piece of gear (sound card) for that outcome?
Or is this a possible answer?
The hardware's ability to achieve 24 bit resolution was already there.
But it took SL to 'unlock' it.
Does the 24bit output refer to the digital audio outs available at the same headphone port?
and where can I find a s/pdif cable to fit it??
