I have just signed up for this forum and I am really happy to be able to participate in this community.
I have purchased the junior Direct stream converter for about a year and I must say that I am really satisfied. Not only for the sound quality, clearly superior to the converters I had previously but also for the reliability of the junior Direct stream.
I also write to submit a question about my last purchase: I recently bought a new CD mechanic: the nuprime cdt 8 pro.
Before reproaching myself for having chosen another brand, instead of buying the ps Audio Memory Player, I would like to justify myself by remembering that the nuprime costs in Italy 900 euros while the ps audio costs ten times as much, 9000 euros. So I just didn’t have all this money to spend right now.
The reason I bought the nuprime is that it has an I2S output that was perfectly compatible with the jung entry. After buying the nuprime mechanics I also discovered that it is able to over-sample the cd signal in PCM up to 768 and the dsd up to 256.
The junior direct stream perfectly hooks the over-spaced signals in pcm up to 352 and in dsd up to 128.
The questions are two:
- I noticed that if the CD signal dsd 128 is over-charged after a while, not immediately, in the background to the music you can hear a slight noise, very slight that you can perceive by bringing the ear closer to the twitter of the speaker. Why?
- Apart from the personal tastes of listening, do you think, given the structure of the junior direct stram, does it make sense to oversample the cd signal with my cd nuprime mechanism? And if so, at what sampling rates?
Thanks for the attention.
