Tricky Questions !

Recommended Posts

I was wondering one thing !?


If for example; One transcode's DSF to FLAC (with dsd2flac) and after that you transcode FLAC to AIFF (hope you are following me :) )........... What is the final result ?


Are you getting AIFF in the same quality like if you would use audio gate to make DSF to AIFF or is it not the same ????


The reason I am asking is to not need to get audiogate and use just dsd2flac and afterwards make flac to aiff ?!



What do you think ?

Yes DSF converted to FLAC then the FLAC converted to AIFF should be identical (within the limits of the DSD to PCM conversion offered by each too) as DSF to AIFF.




PS as a secondary observation; I would ensure you keep the original DSF files as well incase you get a DSD compatible DAC later.



...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.
