Dither or distort ? Listen and decide for yourself

How to decide between Dither or Distort? The effect of using dither on digital video is that it creates a lot of hiss in the video. This random noise is added to the signal to prevent quantization error but it is not always necessary when you first record an analogue signal – most audio have enough random noise in them to effectively “self-dither” the signal. So the main idea is that, a little low level hiss is always better while mixing at 16bit.
