You are right, I didn't count the simple old approach, and now I have to eat my words.
I've spent the best part of the weekend reevaluating the Aqvox DAC.
Integer ratio upsampling/bypass mode indeed sounds better in many cases.
Unfortunately I'm not sure anymore to which degree I'm fooling myself.I've spent many hours critically listening, I'm totally exhausted and need a break.
Could anyone explain why to me integer ratio upsampling seems to make a difference to plain Redbook?
I mean, the PCM1796 is oversampling anyway.
