DSD or Vinyl Which Will Sound Better?


#1

I have always thought Vinyl has a more organic sound than Digital, more texture, longer tone decay, cymbals and snares sound real on Vinyl.



If you compare the same recording on Vinyl, it was either close to being the same, or slightly better on Vinyl.



Also will DSD make digital outputs of TV sound better?

Not anymore. :D
In all fairness, we didn't spin any vinyl but the new DAC sounds to me like vinyl with a LOT more dynamic range.

A recent Vinyl story that sounds like the SoundStream DAC story:



I recently switch out my low output Grado Reference1 (a $1,500.00 phono cartridge) for a Sound Smith made for VPI Zephyr (a $1,000.00 phono cartridge).



I switch because the Zephyr was made specifically for a VPI Uni-Pivot Tonearm.



I am using a Hadcock 242 Uni-Pivot Tonearm.



I was surprised to hear additional information coming from the Zephyr (similar to the descriptions of the additional information coming from the SoundStream DAC).



I do miss the smoothness of the Grado, but at the end of the day the Zephyr has remained in my system.



I can not wait to compare the SoundStream DAC to my Vinyl set-up.
