RE: Truncation of LSB's

The LSB for 20-bit audio shuts off at -120 dB...... So unless the music itself is purely electronic in nature (and goes beyond 20 bits in depth), the four truncated bits are all acting deep in the noise floor........

Due to less RF switching, which generates less interference (provided the switching transistors require identical power), I'd even say that playing "24-bit audio" with a 20-bit DAC might be desirable, relative to using a 24-bit DAC.

This is all theory.... If you like what you hear, that's what matters most.
