...better and more transparent convertors have come along since then,..and side note..DSD128 is the most analog like format i have heard for archiving. Actually virtually indistinguishable from the source.

My comments about the HDCD A/D converter has no relation to the fact that other excellent converters eventually came out. That is an obvious given. As far as DSD and analog, the debate over which medium people perceive as more desirable is open to debate and opinion. I have heard really good and less good from all of the media formats, and tend to believe that much of the more obvious faults that exist are due to incompetent recording, engineering, mastering, and manufacturing.
fyi, my comment about DSD128 was in relation to archiving...that is the key word..meaning, DSD as the delivery medium is not ideal.
An analog tape archived to DSD128 them mastered to 24 bit PCM is an excellent work flow.
