Measure what exactly? Where is manufacturer's measurement for this? And where do you get this claim anyway? There is only a single mention of that word in M-scaler product page which doesn't say that at all:The crux of the complaint seems to be that the audible (according to Watts) benefits of the M Scaler are chiefly related to its improvement of transient timing accuracy, and Amir didn't measure that specifically.
Him claiming this in the interview is non-sequitur. Where is any objective evidence of this? Where is the audibility studies he is talking about?
Is everyone producing music hearing the wrong transients, leaving it for us to hear for the first time? Really?
Folks, the definition of an ideal upsampler is one that gives you more samples but without distortion. That is it. It does nothing for "transients." Now, if you created an illegal signal with infinite bandwidth such as an impulse, yes you can show that running at higher sample rate produces more of that signal. But for one that is already severely band limited in 44.1 kHz? You simply cannot do that or you are not a resampler but an effect box.
I provided audio samples of its 2X resampling. Why don't he and others run a proper blind test and report back on what you hear.
So no, just because he throws big words around doesn't mean they are real benefits.
