Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: I am curious


Mine's still 16 bit, with a 48kHz limit. Pretty soon I'm going to have an XMOS based asynchronous USB board that could do up to 192kHz, that outputs Simultaneous Data Mode instead of I2S. The board can be usable with some multibit chips like TDA1541A, PCM1704 (24 bit), etc, depending on the USB board's configuration.. Not that higher sampling rates automatically sound better, but it's nice to have the capability.. I still spin CD's, so I'll switch to I2S when getting an SPDIF input signal.

I know, it doesn't really answer your question, but I'm sticking to multibit (vs delta sigma), regardless of high res or not. There's just that tone and timbre that sounds right to me. Delta sigma could sound impressively good too, it's just a matter of taste.
