Why does roon prefer 16 bit to 24 bit

When playing an album which is avaliable in
Tidal FLAC 44,1-16
Qobuz FLAC 44,1-24

Roon prefers 16 bit

Can anyone explan me what might be the reason therefore
I thought 24 bit ist better than 16 bit if filetype and kHz is the same

Generally I find that on my Roon setup prefers 24 bit to 16 bit files.

You can always set the primary album in the versions area of the versions if you want to change it.
Not sure why it is doing that though.

This might have something to do with the streaming service preference where somehow Roon choose Tidal over Qobuz if you have both services. Not sure if this is still an issue but several threads started on this already.

In my system, the behavior seems to be random: sometimes Roon chooses the higher resolution version, other times the lower resolution one. This is although I use only one streaming service, but the same happens when I used two.
