24-bit maybe, but probably 48kHz sampling rate (that's what my G5 has).

You'd need to look at and listen to more than the raw numbers for bit 
depth and sampling rate. The quality of the analog input and of the 
converter can vary over a wide range from one device to another. 
Otherwise why would people spent thousands on high-end converters?
