I think you are correct in this. I have four DA-20MKII machines and I
believe they are 16 bit which was the bulk of the DAT usage.
It would be extremely helpful if someone who was closer to the HR DATs
than I was could post a list of all the HR variations for DAT, DTRS, and
ADAT. All of these started out as 44.1/48 ks/s and 16 bits, but they all
grew. I just am not aware of all the options. I do know ADAT went to 20
bits (I have an XT20).
If whoever posts it agrees, I would like to place it (with credit) on my
blog site www.richardhess.com/notes/
