what Henrik is saying is that if your using the L2, it processes at 48 bit and you should dither that down to 24 bit coming out of the unit. Otherwise your truncating. the only way to do this is if you use the internal IDR dither which in my opinion, sounds good. This goes with most digital processors, even outboard stuff. Most process at higher that 24 bit and need to be dithered down, the only way of doing that is with whatever they decided to put in their unit. Some use powr, IDR, uv22.
