RE: BIS Recordings

Linn do it as well and probably a large number of the bigger labels. The reason for the recording being done in PCM (as well as mixed, edited etc in the PCM domain) then recoded as a bitstream is because of the ease of editing. I think in the early days, it wasn't possible to edit the bitstream directly. It shouldn't make any difference to you in playback. In fact a pure bitstream (DSD) recording is theoretically inferior to a multi-bit recording because of the inability to adequately dither the signal. A delta-sigma modulator needs many more levels (at least 5) to overcome this limitation.
