The audio was transcoded as a 32-bit AIFF. I need to re-encode it as a 24-bit depth leaving the format intact.  According to FFMPEG (N-98498-gfa8345c) man page for -sample_fmts I can choose from the following options:

name   depth
u8        8 
s16      16 
s32      32 
flt      32 
dbl      64 
u8p       8 
s16p     16 
s32p     32 
fltp     32 
dblp     64 
s64      64 
s64p     64
