    FWW, my opinion is based on mic feeds that have been split to PCM and DSD converters and we compared the resulting recording to a live event of acoustic instruments. We have done this several times with chamber music and acoustic guitar. We also have tried over several top DACs.

    Just looked at the recording shown today in Stereophile (Fischer's New Mahler Symphony 3) https://channelclassics.nativedsd.co...no-3-in-dminor

    Considering that the technical details shown in the booklet are just "dsd Super Audio/Grimm Audio Pyramix Editing/Merging Technologies" I would suppose that it was recorded in DSD and mixed/mastered in DXD, probably all other stereo formats coming from the DXD master. However, looking at the prices, I see DSD128 is more expensive than DXD. Usually sellers have an higher price for DXD, as it is the higher quality. Any special reason for this different price scheme?

    Have a look at the nativedsd website for the technical (recording) aspects of this recording. Jared explains on this site how this original dsd 64 recording was reworked in dxd and from there to dsd 128 and dsd 256. Have not bought this recording (yet) so do not know how the original dsd 64 recording compares to the other (higher) format files.

    The Challenge Classics recordings made by Bert van der Wolf are original dxd recording but are also made available in various dsd formats. His dsd 256 files are (also) more expensive than his dxd files.
