I am the happy owner of a Sprout 100. I love the sound. I use a Moode player (RPi3) with a USB connection to the Sprout. All my music is stored on a NAS.
Paul explained multiple times that a PSA DAC produces a higher quality sound when sourced with a DSD stream compared with a PCM.
Is there an advantage of converting FLAC (PCM 24bit/192kHz) to DSD128 ?
This can be done in software on a PC with EZ CD Audio Converter ($40).
Comparing both is very difficult for me. When playing a DSD song after a PCM I can only say: both sound great.
Converting takes a lot of time and disk-space; so does this makes sense?
Is this an improvement for the Sprout, or only for high-end DACs, or not at all?
