It's like wine

Studies have been done that show when you're told the price of a bottle of wine, the more expensive it is, the more blood and oxygen is sent to a portion of the brain that activates pleasure. Thus, the taste of the wine is actually determined by pre-conceived perceptions and beliefs about it, and this is happening on a chemical level in your brain.


The whole DSD vs 24/96 PCM is the same thing. On paper DSD is superior. There's no debating this. People claim they can hear the difference, and wax poetics about the sound of DSD. But no one was done a true controlled experiment where a performance was simultaneously recorded in both DSD and 24/96 PCM with as much as the same equipment (such as microphones), and then tested to see if people could distinguish between the two.
