Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Personally I have a very hard time differentiating 16/44 from higher rez

"the upshot being is it is cheaper to have the feeling of a live performance with these higher bitrates."

That's a very interesting thought! I'm fact I've found all of your comments in this thread quite enlightening as they help to explain some of my experiences. If you are right then I have to turn my thinking on it's head...

Rather than higher sample rates or bit depths requiring ever better clocks and DAC's to resolve properly maybe for listening it's really is the other way 'round: since each sample has less effect on the overall output energy and improves the temporal resolution then they become individually less critical as they approach continuous analog.

Hmmmm, Rick
