In my recent researches into wav and aiff formats I learnt that these
formats allow for pretty much any word length - but as you say, they
get stored as the next multiple of eight, padded with zeros. Maybe
there's some issue of A to D and D to A conversion or latency that
makes it worthwhile to use 11 bits?
Given that each additional bit doubles the resolution, maybe there
are worthwhile trade-offs involved.
