16bit Printing from Aperture #1

Hi All,
Recently I've been using LR3 not because I prefer it to A3 but when I print from both the prints from LR have more detail on them (just to clarify I'm not referring to colour or light/dark shifts).
Both are set to 300dpi which is the resolution of my printer and as far as I can tell the only difference is LR has a check box for 16bit printing. Does A3 have similar or is it not actually printing in 16bit which would explain the loss of detail.
Thanks in advance,

I can hardly imagine that 16-bit printing is truly the cause of this. Almost every printer isn’t even capable over understanding/producing 16-bit colors. What printer do you use? Is it capable of 16-bit printing? And did you enable 16-bit printing in the printer driver? (If yes, then it should work from Leopard onwards)

Sadly printing is one of my weakest areas of understanding. Someone else will have to hit this one, if they can.
