Nawww that's Never happened before.. has it?
I do not know well about the measurement conditions, but this is what I see.
Hi-Fi World 2011 02
CREEK DESTINY 2 £1,400
I had the occasion to run into the Gentleman behind Creek Audio a few times strictly socially. He appeared to me a straight shooter.
So I will grant an innocent mistake as possible (just as much as it may be just better design than the Chip makers Evaluation Board), but an outright lie...?
And if you are going to lie, then the difference between 0.001% and 0.0008% seems not significant enough (to me anyway - it's 2dB so 100dB vs. 102dB) to risk some smartypants catching you out and going: "But the datasheet says the chip can only do 0.001%".
Now if the datasheet says 0.001% and someone using the chip (and only one chip)claims 0.0001% - then we may suggest that something is not kosher.
Though depending on the context, even that may not be impossible, I have seen similar levels of improvements from using multiple chips correctly applied (which is not dumb "stacking").
At 20 bits, you are on the verge of dynamic range covering fly-farts-at-20-feet to untolerable pain. Really, what more could we need?
Why suppose that they are lying?
