I wrote this some time ago as part of a review of a Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 audio capture box, but decided to break it out into its own separate page. This calculator uses the signal-to-quantization-noise ratio formula, Nyquist frequency, and bitrate formulas to calculate various properties of uncompressed PCM digital audio quickly.

Common formats:
* *

Enter bit depth

Bit

Enter Sample Rate

KHz

Enter Audio Channels

channels

Maximum Dynamic Range

 

Pressure Level Values

 

Frequency Range (folding frequency)

 
 

*DVD-A has multiple format options, and uses MLP (lossless compression) so the bitrates represent the decoded data-stream.
