Theoretically, what's better: If "Mastered for iTunes" files for us to buy on iTunes will be 24bit/96kHz but lossy VERSUS Apple Lossless (from a CD) that's 16bit/44kHz and lossless? Apple Lossless (ALAC) would sound like a CD. "Mastered for iTunes" has a better bit depth of 24 bit and a better sample rate of 96kHz than a CD, but "Mastered for iTunes" is lossy. Ideally, the best would be 24/96 and lossless, which I believe is the same as the studio digital master, correct? BTW, if Apple were to offer in the future 24/96 lossless, would that, could that also be called Apple Lossless (ALAC)? Or would another name for the format be needed? Can I now rip a SACD that's 24bit/96kHz into ALAC format into iTunes? Thanks!
