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

RE: "I thought the E30 could handle 32 bits, but maybe not some other part of my chain? "

I do have one recording done in 32 bit...

Alrighty then. Nothing succeeds like excess! ;)

While I agree that 44/16 was a standard fenced in by 1976 era media limitations, I find that 96/24 is where the differences start getting more difficult to hear. I have many 176/24 and 192/24 recordings, but I couldn't say they are necessarily *better* because of that. The 96/24 format offers plenty of bandwidth in which to use a more gradual aliasing filter.

I'm of two minds about DSD. Some claim that "upsampling" PCM to DSD sounds better. If that's true, then it is necessarily changing the original and imparting its own *nicer* sound.
