Do hi-res files sound better than Redbook when converted to DSD?

Recommended Posts

Well, the standard view would be it depended mainly on the quality of recording, DR etc ... eg on sacds, the redbook layer often has a different-inferior re-mastering cf to the dsd layer.

The key framing of the question would be comparing 2 recordings of say 16-44 & dsf64 or 24-192 that had identical recording quality.

If that were possible.
