But how come these people can differentiate between r2r and DS dac ?
No doubt whatsoever early DS D/A converters were fuzzy, had poor resolution and less detail than the then current SOTA multibits. It was as obvious as t#ts on a bull. There was no comparison. Anyone who doubts it, wasn't there.
But DS got a whole lot better and in not too many years either. I have no doubts I would not be able to discern differences now, with my older ears and decades of DS evolution.
That said, for CD, 16/44, it doesn't get any better for me than a PCM-63 or PCM58P (K, J orS) at 8x O/S in a dedicated single box player or transport/D/A.
