RE: DSD Numbers.

Do you mean DSD 64, DSD 256 etc ?

The numbers are multiples of the clock frequency of 44.1 e.g. DSD 64 is 64 x 44.1. So given an end to end DSD recording and playback system the higher numbers indicate higher resolution and that the the noise resulting from the one bit DSD processing is moved further out of the audio band (noise shaping) to a point where a filter is applied. For the highest rates the filter can be very simple indeed such as in the new Marantz CD-10 player.
