    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...

    How to stop Audirvana Plus 3.2.8 boosting audio gain on DSD tracks?

    The only album I have in DSD format is Michael Jackson's Thriller. The DSD 64 version of Thriller doesn't required any gain boost (see this and note the peak 0.0 dB on Billie Jean), however, it seems that by default Audirvana is increasing gain, resulting in clipping. Using an RME ADI-2 DAC...
