The Audiogate software converts DSD into PCM for playback. So, there is an additional stage of conversion in this process, and you still need an external DAC for playback of the PCM file. If you have a music file that is only in the DSD (DSF, as on SACD discs for playback), then at least you could listen to it using this software.
If, as on the 2L website, the music file is available in a format that your equipment can natively handle without an intermediate conversion, all the better.
