Positive Feedback - Pure DSD256 - What We Hear

Rushton Paul writes a very good article on the challenges of DSD recording and how different engineers, labels and resellers approach it. Rushton investigates the variables and gives examples from different labels.

From the article ,,,
"As you can well imagine, the variables here are as intense and varied as in the analog world. But we have found a digital format with which we are now very comfortable—DSD256. And make that Pure DSD256 if at all possible. By this I mean files that were originally recorded directly to the DSD256 format and then maintained purely in DSD without any conversion to PCM/DXD for post-processing."

We found this article to be very accurate and enthusiastic about the sound of DSD.
