The upsampling to DSD capability of recent DACs is so enjoyable that there are two consequences on myself: 1. A moderate recent DAC such as the M8A put all of my old DAC's to shelves. Some of my old DACs were quite good in the old days because they were substantially modded. 2. I restarted buying CDs because I found CDs are much more enjoyable than before in my system when played by these recent DACs updampled to DSD256 or DSD512. I endorse JDUBS statement: please TRY it and determine it for yourselves.
