On the R16, stereo linking produces a true stereo WAV file, which can be moved/assigned to other stereo linked pairs (and can NOT be assigned to a non-linked pair).

On the HD16, stereo linking just sets panning/faders for operation as stereo, but the "v-takes" ares still mono (even scarier: the v-takes don't have to have the same take number -- you could record track 1 take 3 and track 2 take 5 as the active pair). V-takes can not be assigned to other tracks -- you have to use the track editing functions to copy/move v-take data. Note that, unlike assigning a file on the R16, one has to specify the start and end time span of data to move, along with where in the destination it is moved. A lot more complexity for just moving, but a lot more on-board editing capability (what would require using the R24 track sequencer and a bounce, can be done with just a series of copies to the same destination). There is nothing that prevents one from doing something to one channel of a stereo linked pair but not to the other channel -- you have to manually select the track PAIR for operation source.
