I ripped a remaster of Marillion's Brave using Eac to flac. The cover of the cd says "24 bit digital remaster" my touch says its 16 bits when I click on the "info"

Did I rip it wrong?

CDs are only 16-bit, you didn't do anything wrong.

CDs are 16 bit, 44100 Hz. The blurb on the cover just means that the mastering of the music was done in 24 bits.
