The CD downloads to the HAP at 16 - but the HAP has a setting to upsample for output - the new DAC I use is the OPPO Sonica DAC - updated chips.
One added point - the HAP upsamples to DSD for its output via its internal DAC - when its outputed to an external DAC it depends on that - the OPPO does not upsample
Right, but do You listen at DSD128?
Do all the up sampling functions transfer to the Sonica?
DSEE/Auto, Remastering Engine, Precision Upsampling?
The Sonica must be very good to better the Sony at DSD128.
As added - the HAP outputs what the original files are to the external DAC - no processing. I have mainly downloaded DSD and 95. FLAC - no 16 etc so can not judge. The HAP came out in 2013 - the OPPO has new Sabre Pro chip - and I notice good difference- perhaps for 16 etc not relevant.
I have the Sony Hap S1 and use it with my PSAudio dac as a source for my Feliks-Audio new Euforia headphone amp, using Sennheiser 800 phones. It is a great combiation and very easy to keep updated with main pc storage.
