The funny thing is this:
"If you use no digital or analog filter then it really looks horrible."
Audio Note is often considered to be the finest digital replay on the market and their DACs are no times oversampling, no digital or analog filters. Martin Colloms who has been reviewing CD state of the Art for decades hailed this as by far the best sounding CD player out there. No filters, no error correction.
The engineering discussions while mildly interesting to me - are really relevant After the audition. If something sounds utterly wonderful and the next one sounds utterly terrible - the engineer to pay attention to is the former not the latter.

Seems every post you make has some AN shill piece in it.
If you have another example of a CD player that uses no digital or analog filters I can probably use that as my example.
This would seem a relevant company to use as an example of the antithesis to the OP's provided youtube video. A CD player that is a virtual opposite in design and yet yields some of the highest regarded (sounding) players on the market.
Not recommending it in this thread - just pointing out a technology that runs completely counter to the video and yields very highly regarded listening results.
I recommend what I would would and do buy. My plan is to buy the $10,000 Audio Note DAC 3.1Xii (bad measurements and all).
For years now, ever since you were Awestruck (sold AN religion ?) by the Twits at that hole in the wall 'Audiohound' shoppe.
You've been Pushing AN 'stuff'.
Which is imo ok..no more/no less, but nowhere near Your estimations
EXPAND your experiences /horizons ?
Enough with the AN shilling.
It discredits your self appointed 'reviews'
No need to get testy - it's just audio. Do what I advise others to do - don't read my posts since chances are I will be recommending what I put my money on.
Typing this as I sit in Front of Line Magnetic (X 3 components), Marantz, Sony and KEF.
