A funny thing about that "snap, crackle, pop" is that when I began recording vinyl to DSD128, the "snap, crackle, pop" seemed to be noticeably less pronounced than on my PCM recordings. I used to fade volume in-between songs in order to eliminate the "snap, crackle, pop" but with DSD128, it didn't seem all that necessary.
Sounds like information getting lost to me...
Sounds like the somewhat artificial smoothing of DSD to me.
Isn't that kind of the same thing?
Well, it sure makes vinyl sound better, unless, of course, you prefer a lot of snap, crackle, and pop. The music is much more prominent without it. Furthermore, I don't hear any of the "rounding" that Abe talks about. There's simply more music and more detail, which was probably originally impaired by all the snap, crackle and pop.
On the other hand, to each his own!
I've found my digital audio nirvana and it's called DSD. Everyone else has to find their own path to happy listening!
