right now im in the mode of keeping all the processing (dsd and dsee) on - but because im neurotic - it could change again
so its thursday - the player is really good - i cant imagine anyone not liking the unit - especially if they want a one box fit and forget and can afford $2000
break- in is real - much to the chagrin of frank van alstine (he will argue that it doesnt exist)
its so nice to have so many songs - in all different formats - at the touch of my fingertips - without having to change a disk each time - but i can only say this because the sound quality is very good
i like the dsee feature for non dsd music - over the last 2 days i have used dsee but have kept the upsampling to dsd off ( i might put it back on) - it so changes - depending on what you hear - its not such a black or white thing.
each song on a album can be recorded differently - you can be neurotic all you want or not - its up to you
Are songs that are recorded in dsd a panacea? Again it depends on how it was recorded - so as an example the Shelby Lynne (Just a Little Lovin) - to my knowledge not recorded originally in dsd but converted to dsd by Acoustic Sounds (super hirez downloads) - sounds amazing - as does the Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto (The Girl from Impanena)
But the "Acoustic Trio DSD Sessions" that was recorded originally in dsd by nativedsd.com sounds just ok - Not bad or anything - but not - "oh my god"
so a little update on my progress
