    question/help with Jcally JM20 USB DAC (is NOT encoding DSD natively!)

    Is DSD in general more quiet than PCM?

    Is DSD in general more quiet than PCM? I have a DAC that outputs 28mW into 300Ohms and my headphones are 470 Ohms at 98dB sensitivity, but surprisingly, it gets very loud even with classical on the PCM side. It still does loud enough on DSD on non-classical music, but with classical, it gets a...

Does it do anything drastic...

    So I've gotten my DX7 Pro DAC/Amp but it's rather rocket science to get my PC to play DSD music and have it send DSD to my DAC without converting it to PCM. The DX7 Pro doesn't come with a CD and has no drivers on the official site, but it installs automatically after it's USB connected. Barely...

    Native DSD makes DSD 512 version of the Sound Liaison DXD original, upsampling???

    Help me understand this; Native DSD has just released a sampler with 5 tracks in DSD 512. It says; "These higher bit rate DSD 512 tracks are all pure DSD created. They are not up samplings, for there are no PCM or DXD conversions involved in their production."... ? I happen to own the last track...
