Remastering with Sony Hap-z1es
Hello, i've been researching a lot about this product and despite some of its connectivity/feature shortcomings, it seems to get favorable reviews when it comes to audio sound quality. so my question is - does the remastering engine in the Hap Z1es make a noticeable difference? I read that it converts all signals to DSD 128.
yesterday, I had my first experience with DSD. i downloaded a DSD 64 version of Elton John's Captain Fantastic and compared it to a 96/24 flac that i downloaded from another high resolution audio site. To me, the DSD version blew the flac away. The DSD had significantly more depth, clarity, and the vocals were far more pronounced. In fact, at first, I swore that the vocals were being played independently in my center channel although it was not - 2 channel output sounded that much better. So for me, if this Sony device can take my flac files (some hi rez and most 16bit) and reproduce them to the sound quality that i heard yesterday, I'm all in. Please share your view on this. If this truly converts to DSD128 then, theoretically, it should sound better than the DSD 64 i heard yesterday, correct? thank you
