I have two DACs. I have been playing the same material, first on one DAC, and then the other. One DAC has a type of distortion, an inharmonious quality to the sound, in the highest register of a singing voice. The other DAC does not have this problem. I did check for clipping but where this happened had no evidence of clipping.
Could this be aliasing? How would this be possible for a DAC? I thought oversampling and the reconstruction filter takes care of this. Can there be a difference in how one DAC reconstructs the analog signal compared with another DAC?
PS: I wonder what aliasing actually sounds like.
