I got my pc hooked up via hdmi to a Marantz sr5005 receiver. I am using foobar to play DST64 and DSD64 files. I have some questions regarding the PCM samplerate and also the DSD2PCM decoding mode I should use to get the best sound quality. I am currently using a samplerate of 176400 Hz and I use Multistage (floating-point) to decode the DSD/DST files.
People complain about a certain high frequency noise while using such a high samplerate and the multistage floating point decoding option. I am not experiencing this, at least I dont think so. What is this high frequency noise? A hissing sound like when you are playing a vinyl? I listened to Beck Sea Change SACD, Queen A Night At The Opera SACD, Roger Waters The Wall Berlin SACD, both Pink Floyd SACDs, Nick Drake Treasury SACD, Dire Strats Brothers In Arms SACD. Everything seems to be in order. Am I doing things right?
Thank you in advance
