I’d describe it as a similar marginal improvement to your experience with DSD256. I’ve seen articles describing DSD512 as some kind of musical nirvana. In my experience with a Holo Spring 1 that’s overstated but a different DAC could have a different result.
It can depend on the DAC you use, but using HQPlayer, the difference between different filters is far more noticable than switching from DSD256 to DSD512.
In my case, with T+A 8 DSD dac, I prefer to use a ‘heavier’ filter - poly-sinc-xtr-lp - with DSD256, than a ‘lighter’ filter, such as poly-sinc-lp, with DSD512.
With what I have read of the Lampi, I would play with HQ-filters, and not do the upgrade.
As said, it is about choice of filters, and capabities of the server/streamer powerfull enough to support DSD512.
In the article, the poly-sinc-short-mp is used. This is obvious a short filter with strong apodizing caracteristics , while I strongly prefer a heavy, long filter with (very) limited apodizing.
It takes some time and effort, but it is rather easy to experience the differences.
Best way is to listen for an extended time to a filter you like. Then switch to an other one, with complete other specifications. You will soon notice what you are missing, or what you are gaining.
Just got my new computer with the i9900k.
Finally I can use ALL the filters with no problem!
I used the filter you recommended :poly-sync-xtr-mp.
The difference in sound compared to the -2s is great! It sounds really good!
What are actually the differences between all the filters? How do I know what filter is good for what song?
