The "redbook" CD standard is limited to 16 bits. Recording techniques that capture word data in excess of 16 bits always need to be dithered down to 16 bits before final CD formatting to play on any CD player.

DVd-Audio authoring is not required. Two channel 24bit linear pcm is permittable in the DVD_Video spec.
while the DVD-Video spec allows for 24 bit LPCM, it must be sampled at either 48 kHz or 96 kHz. The DVD-Audio specification allows for 24 bit LPCM at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, and 192 kHz.
Based on that, if the original material is 24/48 or 24/96, then either the DVD-Video spec or the DVD-Audio spec will work. If the material is something other than 48 or 96 kHz, then you can't use DVD-Video.
1-Is there no way to burn files like this as a data file?
2-Is there not a player that can read the data files and output the info? If so I'm assuming the player would have to be more than just a regular redbook type.
I'm going to experiment putting some high-res files on a flash drive today and see how my Oppo likes 'em.
