I guess so. I’m just not sure why a super-compulsive audiophile would want something converted to DSD then back to PCM for a redbook CD. I guess it would have to be, in order to “be the same master” and to have a similar sound.
Don’t get me wrong - I like the sound of DSD and for a while I was converting everything to DSD to play through my Project S2 Digital (and just to make my core work for it!) but then I wouldn’t want to again convert it back to PCM somehow in the playback chain.
Not that it sounds “bad” (indeed I listen to ripped DSD converted or reconverted back to PCM all the time). But rather I would bet that it would “measure bad” and sound euphonious, which is fine with me, but sort of contrary to people putting in special power substations in their back yard to convert the sun into a linear power supply to regenerate their ethernet signal so as to purify the audio signal before it is blessed by an Eastern Orthodox priest while being cached at the RAAT endpoint.
So, long way of saying, sounds good, not theoretically pure.
