Let me start out thanking both Ted and Paul for creating such a great sounding audio component. I am thoroughly enjoying my journey back through all my PCM (both ripped, and Hi-Rez). Now for the question, it has to do with streaming DSD 64 files, after reading posts and searching the web I think I am now more confused about the DirectStream DAC inputs. I currently use a Bryston BDP-1 plays everything great using AES/EBU as my connection to DSD SR, of course it doesn’t do DSD files, so I am researching what streamer to possibly replace it with. Problem is DSD SR inputs sound like any of them can accept a DSD stream up to DSD64 and some can do DSD128, and I2S seems like it can take anything. I really wanted to stay with AES/EBU but was thinking I2S might be a better way so started looking at streamers that had that capability when I ran across an article that said not all MFG use the same pinouts for the HDMI cable connection. How am I supposed to know what will work and what might be proprietary to a MFR. Everybody is just lableling them as I2S. As far as I can tell there is no published standard that everybody is required to use.
Hopefully Paul or Ted will see and chime in on this, sure would help me.
