RE: In your experience-Yes, I want hirez, not 16 bit 44.1/48k

It is clear that you (like I) have tried many different ways to get the very best sound out of the current music formats. I have also gone down the path of getting a purpose built computer (fanless case , a Zalman tnn 500af) using a Lynx card(Lynxtwo C) which I had slaved to my EMMLABS Dac6e signature version. This did not quite match up to the Emmlab transport Dac combo for CD playback. I then tried the empirical turbo offramp 2 as the interface between my computer and the Dac6e. I am using the SRC upsampler which converts the 16/44.1 to 24/96. With this combination I am currently getting superior 16/44.1 playback from my PC cw the EMM transport/Dac6e combo. Sacd playback however is clearly superior to the sound of 16/44.1.
I live in Australia where our electrical specs are similar to those in Europe.
I hope this helps
