> Hmmm, wouldn't there actually be TWO channels for audio - stereo? 

There are as many channels as you hear.  They are just not represented 
in the same way as images, there are in actuality, as you surmised, two 
16 bit 44.1 kHz channels, so we would have a 32 bit setup there if you 
did the same thing graphics do, we just choose to give the overall 
resoltuion and the amount of channels as two seperate numbers, as each 
channel will usually have the same bit depth.
