'You will soon notice, that the sound is getting more and more resolute, but a lot of familiar sounds in familiar songs will change drastically,"

Please cut out the exaggeration. If one has a half-decent DAC no change of player or operating system software is going to make a drastic change to the sound unless the wrong bits are being sent to the DAC. There may be a difference, but it's going to be at the threshold of perception, probably difficult to pick out reliably in blind testing, i.e. a subtle difference.

This type of exaggerated statement is one of the reasons why audiophiles are not taken seriously by many audio professionals, who refer to these people as "audiophools".
