Thanks to both Chris and Brett for their thoughtful replies. I better
understand that an upgrade to 24 bits is not a "no brainer" upgrade,
but part of design strategy. All the parts must fit together to get
superior results and fulfill site goals.
There are new devices that may hold promise for future amateur use. One
such device is the Cirrus Logic CS5530 24 bit ADC with integrated
amplifier. I don't know if this could stand alone with a dedicated
computer (or maybe not dedicated) using a serial port, or if it must be
combined with a microcontroller. I also don't know if the input must be
pre-filtered to prevent aliasing, or if the integrated amplifier is
sufficient for amateur seismic work.
Thanks for your comments
