I'm guessing this just means how the audio transfer is handled ( in 8 but words combined? ) rather than the output itself on clock port amigas is 8 bit
I'm thinking it means that it can do full 16-bit quality PCM sound natively, i.e. without bit banging, even in 8 bit clock port mode, although it would be weird otherwise. It will have a hardware FIFO buffer to ease the realtime constraints of the audio application, like all other sound cards.
