New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: MQA Newbie Question

Interestingly, you should know that a well known independent mastering engineer who works for Audio Fidelity, Steve Hoffman, who release hybrid SACDs, captures the Redbook layer of all their discs at 16/44.1 because he believes tapes should be archived in the same native format they will be released in. They do a separate DSD capture for the SACD layer. One would think he would just fold down the DSD capture, but he believes in the least amount of processing.

On another note, many, many tapes have been captured to DSD as well. It is very easy to convert to PCM for mastering, and releasing in PCM.
