Audio Bit Rate Calculator
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.
Enter bit depthBit
Enter Sample RateKHz

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.
