Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Phase or Filter?

Okay, I think I understand what you are asking. As fmak said, both the absolute phase (waveform polarity) and the digital interpolation filter settings make an audible difference. What's disconcerting about multiple digital filter setting options is that while they each change the chracter of the sound, often, no one setting sounds consistently more right across the majority of CDs, which, I believe, was one of your points. I hear sound character trade-offs between slow and sharp filter settings. Gain some desirable aspect of sound character by switching to one setting, but then also lose some other desireable aspect of sound character.
