RE: Static DSD-)PCM Conversion

I haven't tried the Tascam converter. However, I have run a few tests with others back in 2015 (see the link below).

Also had a look at the foobar plugin:

Basically conversion very accurate these days. Sounds great. The main difference is how much hi-frequency filtering you want. For me DSD64 has too much noise from 30kHz and above so I do like how Saracon does the job (but expensive studio software).

These days, for free, I'll use foobar conversion of DSD64 to PCM 176.4; then use software like iZotope to resample to 88kHz at most and possibly dither to 16-bits if I see no evidence that the SACD/DSD track has a low noise floor worthy of keeping at 24-bits.
