That sounds good. I'll just leave you with this thought: the very first thing you said in this thread was "I'm not an expert by any means, and definitely have spent no time trying to compare the sound of 16 vs 24 bits." Yet it didn't take long until you had, by interpreting technical documents on your own in the span of a couple of days, convinced yourself that you knew the implications better than for example DSP professionals such as Vorbis codec author Chris Montgomery (whose concise demonstrations are linked multiple times in this thread) and other experts who have spent years professionally on the subject. All this in a couple of days, from a "not an expert by any means" who has spent "no time trying to compare" the very things the discussion was about.
This isn't a put-down, believe it or not. Not even when I say this: I know the Dunning-Kruger effect is flaunted online as an easy insult, ready to go when ever someone offers a differing opinion on anything that can be portrayed in such light. So much so that even mentioning it by its name... just makes a discussion go sour. However, the conversation seems to be peacefully over, and I'll finally keep quiet as well -- and in cases like this, it's good to recognize the actual effect (not the insult kind) playing tricks on someone getting to know a new thing. I'm no exception in this regard, it goes without saying.
Just ask yourself, what are the objective odds that concepts outlined in this thread (that you call "repeating the same wrong concepts"), demonstrated to you by veteran DSP professionals like Chris (Monty), are the wrong ones -- and the ones you come up with in a day or two are the correct ones?
The problem wasn't your sources, and you weren't even that far off; as you hopefully saw, we agree on most things. It was just your intuition based conclusions, at this moment in time, on what the actual implications then are. I'm sure the conclusions will keep getting more accurate and proportioned and serve you well.
