Hi ArjI do it since I have no choice as my dacs limit is 16/48 !. But the Hi-rez files sound excellent even downsampled.
Maybe one of these days I'll compare downsampled at 44.1 with 48 although I guess it may be much different.
I have heard usampled sound and it never appealed, the increase in "detail" was always accompanied by reduced connect in my few experiences. But High Rez in its native format on Dac was very good. if I had a lot of High rez content I wold have gone for it but since 95% of music i listen to are on CDs and some ripped, I am hanging on
..And Analogue definitely has a more emotional connect, but I am afraid we will derail this thread with this talk
have you compared ur dac with any renown reputed dac and i have seen the site,they have oem line and audiophile line in which they provide a housing to the dac(this is what i understand after looking the site). where are you located at. Especially after looking the price,its very tempting to own a dac. Ur insight is highly appreciated.I use a DIY made Soekris r2r DAC (DAM 1021) since more than 4-5 years now with a dedicated Salas shunt power supply. This is just an awesome DAC I have heard and stayed in my setup since then. So if you are into DIY then do consider this one and I think now they have release multiple new versions with the latest being 1941 if I am not wrong. Just make a dual mono or simple power supply like the Salas, and you can easily better a commercial ones more than its worth the cost of the entire build.
