  • For playback of DSD files I use JRiver MC21 on a notebook PC running Windows 7
    .
  • The USB output from the PC connects to a miniDSP USBStreamer B, which is connected via Toslink (optical) to a miniDSP 4x10 HD

  • The miniDSP 4x10 HD runs at 96 kHz sampling rate and is configured to generate the required equalization and crossover functions for  LX521.4 and LXmini loudspeakers. It also provides volume control.

  • The DAC outputs from the miniDSP 4x10 HD drive the power amplifiers for LX521.4 or LXmini

 

In my system the lowest sampling rate in the conversion from a DSD file to analog output is 96 kHz. I do not have DSD DAC's and thus cannot confirm the claims that are made in the above talks. 

Also, in the production of a SACD the microphone signals are archived as DSD files. But the mixing of microphone channels is usually done after converting the DSD files to 96 kHz PCM, because DSD mixing desks are rare. The resulting PCM files are then converted back to DSD and stored on the SACD that is being sold

For sure read:  Weiss on DSD ... Gets it right.

What you hear is not the air pressure variation in itself 
but what has drawn your attention
in the streams of superimposed air pressure variations 
at your eardrums

An acoustic event has dimensions of Time, Tone, Loudness and Space
Have they been recorded and rendered sensibly?
