Thank you very much for the clarification Matt. Still on the radar, and being addressed - that’s good news about the first problem.
And while it does not affect me a great deal, because I don’t have a lot of DSD tracks. But I have friends that do. So for their interests I’d love to know… what about the second problem, three posts up? The noise when switching from DSD to PCM or visa versa?
The DSD to PCM transitions are still being investigated. I’m hoping these are related to the same underlying issue and are both addressed at the same time. I have a suspicion it occurs due to buffering the next stream, but not switching to the proper decoder until the first stream is done, even though the next stream is already in the buffer. I don’t have much visibility into it though so I’ll let the smart guys over at Convers figure out what’s really going on, but the more information I can give them the better.
I will say I notice a small ‘pop’/‘tick’ noise repeated 3 or 4 times in the first half second of a track when I go from a DSD to PCM file, but not going from DSD back to PCM. Is anyone experiencing unexpected noise artifacts transitioning from PCM to DSD?
