  1. Exploring DSD

    Folks: Having perused a couple of the "which is better DSD or 24/192 PCM" discussions, I decided to try to find out for myself whether or not DSD is worth the effort and expense. Please note that I have several hundred SACDs and so most of what I like is represented there. So, I "helped" my wife come up with a Schiit Loki for me as a Christmas present. I am waiting for a powered USB expander to actually set it up with my Bifrost on my desktop system (iMac --> Bifrost --> Yamaha CA 610 II --> Tannoy Mercury 2 speakers). I will then set up a few comparisons with different integrated amps and different speakers to determine if I have any preferences. One thing I have already noticed is that the supply of DSDs overlaps the availability of SACDs, i.e., everything I see on DSD is either already in my collection or else the DSD will be released six months AFTER the SACD is released. I have seen a few references to recordings that are being made via DSD (e.g., Blue Coast) but no stampede yet... So, in addition to any aural differences I might perceive, I am interested in availability of material especially where the lineage of the material is clear. If there are recordings that can only be obtained in DSD, then the evaluation questions may have to be modified. Right now, I'm just playing around. Would love to hear others' experiences with both aural and availability issues. Mike
