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

High resolution

I was just comparing CDs with the IFI SPDIF purifier2 to hi-res to some extent. I find that only 24/192 may really be better than CD. Most of the Qobuz hi res I hear is 24/44.1 (which sounds better than CD) or 24/96. But once you re-clock, I may prefer CD quality vs non-reclocked "hi-res".
In other words, I think that the re-clocking of this caliber is more important that the resolution.
Also, I don't listen to delta-sigma DACs, I could never stand them (except for a Macintosh I once heard at a show).
And the idea that NOS DACs are more immune to jitter, I now find to be of low value (they need re-clockers).
